This is Brian Bennett for CNET.com and today we're taking a first look at the HTC 1X which is available for $199.99 on AT&T.
If you're a fan of HTC, you know the 1X is the flagship handset in the company's 2012 product line.
This version of the 1X runs a dual core 1.5 Gigahertz Snapdragon S4 processor unlike the international model that comes with a quad core NVIDIA Tegra 3 Chip.
Still this phone is plenty fast, has 16 gigabytes of RAM and 1 gigabyte of ROM.
The also connects to AT&Ts new 4g LTE network for fast data.
Other goodies include android 4.0 Gingerbread and HTCs latest version of it's Sense UI version 4 with it's big 4.7-inch 1280 X 720 pixel screen, the HTC 1X is a sizeable smart phone.
At 0.36-inch thick however, the device is spinning up to grip comfortably.
I also really dig it's futuristic polycarbonate unibody construction with despite being plastic has a premium feel.
It's a big departure from the usual metal designs HTC typically uses.
It reminds me of the Nokia Lumia 900, another well-crafted and aggressively designed handset on AT&T.
Above the screen is a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera.
Below the display are the 3 usual android Ice Cream Sandwich buttons.
On the right is a very slim volume bar while on the left is the phone's micro USB port.
On top is the power button and headphone jack and just like the other HTC 1 series phone, the 1X features what HTC called Image Sense.
Basically, that means the device has a special processor just for processing images, performs very quickly and both a bootload of Cmodes, special settings and filters.
The camcorder function also captures video in full 1080p HD quality and let's you snaps films while recording too.
These audio processing technology is also on board as well and will automatically detects when you connect a Beats branded headset and select a matching equalizer audio profile.
Now the new HTC 1X isn't all peaches and cream.
For instance, there's no SD card slot for extra storage and the battery isn't removable.
The device also uses a micro SIM card so you'll have to convert to the smallest size to swap for an older phone.
I'm Brian Bennett and this have been a first look at the HTC 1X for AT&T.
