HTC Proto doubling as the Desire X, retailers suggest

A handful of online sites co-brand the midlevel HTC Proto as the Desire X.

The midrange Android handset known as the HTC Proto should soon go by another name, the HTC Desire X, according to a handful of online retailers that are surfacing placeholder Web pages for the device.

Swedish site Technytt spotted the listings on four online retailers, including three Swedish sites and one Norwegian retailer: ClickOK, Elgiganten Business, Elkjop Business, and Multitech.

By any name, the Proto/Desire X is tapped to carry similar specs as the current HTC One V, albeit with a refreshed look that's cleaner to my eye, at least, if the leaked images prove accurate.

The Proto/Desire X should carry Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (at least,) a 4-inch display, a speedy 5-megapixel camera, and a 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor. Expect it to also support HTC's Sense 4 Android overlay, and HTC Beats for audio enhancement.

As with the original One V, which debuted at Mobile World Congress last February, HTC is expected to give the Proto/Desire X a European debut; more specifically, look for its official launch later this week at the IFA conference in Berlin. CNET will be there, covering all the news.
