HTC One X new specs include on-screen buttons, microSIM, 1800 mAh battery and SLCD display
With every hour that passes, it feels like the details we have on HTC’s upcoming Android lineup for Mobile World Congress continue to change. The latest spec update to leak out pertains to the HTC One X, giving us the final pieces to fill in to complete the full puzzle.
Besides the 4-7-inch display and quad-core Tegra 3 processor, rumor has it that the HTC One X will be gaining (or losing) one other feature to set it apart from HTC’s other devices. That’s right, the HTC One X will be the first HTC phone to ditch capacitive buttons and will sport on-screen soft buttons. This means that users will be giving up a bit of the screen real-estate, but from what we’re heard in the comments and on Twitter, that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
Other new features on the HTC One X include an amber and green notification LED, 5-pogo-pin connection for docking with an audio dock, microSIM slot, Super LCD display, dual-microphones for stereo audio recording with video capture and noise reduction during phone calls, FM radio, and a 1800 mAh battery.
The new source claims that the HTC One X is currently running on Android 4.0.3 with HTC Sense 4.0, but the phone could be updated to Android 4.0.5 before it is released this spring. Earlier leaks claimed that the HTC One X would be slightly over 10mm thick, but now it sounds like he phone could be slimmer than we previously expected.
As it stand now, the HTC One X will be the most powerful and feature rich Android phone when it is unveiled in Barcelona on February 26. Will it be powerful enough to compete with the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S III? It’s hard to say, but it’s certainly poised to fight things out to the very end.
Will the HTC One X be the your next phone?
