2012 has already proved to be an amazing year for technological devices. We’ve seen the Transformer Prime, the Galaxy Nexus, the new iPad, and an assortment of other devices as well.
But perhaps the most exciting news of this year was the new HTC One X that was announced a short time ago. While the Transformer Prime was the first tablet to utilize the power of the Tegra 3 processor, the HTC One X will be the first phone to utilize this new quad-core chip. This is exciting news for those who were waiting for phones to introduce quad-core processing technology, which will make everything the phone does feel faster and smoother, from gaming to web browsing.
The release date is set for the 5th of April for the UK, and the rest of the world will get it a week or two after that. Hopefully, the wait isn’t that long, because just about every Android fan out there is salivating at the thought of owning one.
What makes the HTC One X so special? Have a look:
- 4.7-inch Super IPS LCD2 display with 1280 x 720
- Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with HTC Sense 4.0
- 8 MP camera with 1080p footage with a .7 second shutter speed
- Quad-core 1.5GHz Tegra 3 processor ULP GeForce GPU
- 32GB storage and 1GB RAM
As you can already tell, the specs of the phone are a step above the rest currently. Most phones today have a dual-core processor and an older version of Android. While phones are slowly updating to Android 4.0, this will be the second phone on the market with native Android 4.0, with the other phone being the Galaxy Nexus.
Of course, not many apps or games are optimized for Tegra 3 usage, but that will all change once phones and tablets with Tegra 3 gain momentum and suck up more of the market. Once that happens, people will genuinely see apps and games utilize the power of a quad-core processor. Right now, Android fans will notice snappier and seamless integration of apps and home screens.
The phone is made from a patented shell that has never existed before. HTC took a material, blasted it until it reached temperatures as hot as the sun, and came out with a special material and design that is especially unique. What you get is an incredibly durable and sleek feel, and it looks fantastic as well.
Beats Audio is also present in the HTC One X. Beats Audio is usually an indication that the speakers or audio software in the phone is above-average in sound quality compared to others in its class.
In conclusion, what you get here is a phone with no competition. It’s perhaps the best phone that will hit the market soon. Not even the Galaxy Nexus will be able to compete. If you’ve been waiting for a phone to upgrade to, this is the one to consider.
