Mid-range HTC One VX heading to AT&T in the “coming months.”
Joining in on all the HTC news today is the new HTC One VX which will be heading to AT&T in the “coming months.” Surprisingly, the HTC One VX has caught us off guard since it’s not often that a handset gets announced without even a trace a rumor. The HTC One VX is an odd-ball device with a 4.5-inch qHD Super LCD2 display, 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 MSM 8930, 1GB of RAM, 8GB internal storage, 5 megapixel main camera with an f/2.0 lens, BSI sensor, ImageSense software integration and 1080p video capture. The front camera is limited to VGA resolution, similar to the HTC One S. Other features include Beats Audio, 1810 mAh battery, NFC, FM radio, Bluetooth 4.0, LTE and a 9.19mm thick shell.
The AT&T HTC One VX will launch with Android 4.0, but HTC is promising that the device’s Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) update will be made available shortly after launch. Since AT&T is currently selling the HTC One X for just $99 ($19.99 if you buy it on Amazon), we’re expecting the HTC One VX to be priced aggressively. We wouldn’t be surprised if the device showed up in AT&T stores before the holidays priced below $80 with a new two-year contract.[quote]The HTC One VX is ideal for those looking for an affordable Android smartphone and a premium experience. The HTC One VX sports one of the slimmest unibody form factors in the industry at just 9.19 millimeters thin, making it easy to hold and navigate. The 4.5-inch display is laminated with scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass which aids in durability and reduces light reflection. A 5-megapixel camera, which goes from lock screen to shooting photos in under a second, offers continuous shooting at 4 frames per second. For those that can’t quite decide whether they want to capture the moment in pictures or video, it is possible to capture a still image from a video with VideoPic.[/quote]
