We are already aware of an Android from HTC, which was going to be mid-range spec’d handset, aiming at tight budget goers. Finally, the HTC Desire X was just made official in Berlin at IFA event. This HTC Desire X won’t be carrying any ground breaking features, but it has got some better specs than the recently released HTC One V and it will be billed as an affordable smartphone.
The HTC Desire X seems to have a pretty good deal if the price is right and it features:
# 4-inch 800 x 480 resolution, Super LCD display
# Qualcomm MSM8225 Snapdragon SoC dual-core processor clocked at 1GHz
# Adreno 203 GPU
# 768MB RAM
# A 5 megapixel back camera with ImageChip and it is capable of taking 480p videos
# 4GB onboard storage with memory expansion up to 32GB via microSD cards
# 25GB of free DropBox storage
# Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, GPS
# Beats Audio support inside
# 1650mAh battery
And the device will ship with Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich OS, but not with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean build. Along with ICS goodies, the device will be rocking with Sense 4.1 UI customizations. A preinstalled VideoPic app allows you to take still while recording videos.
No word on pricing or specific availability of the HTC Desire X handset just yet, but its is expected to hit the markets in Europe and Asia by mid-September in black and white colors.
