More HTC One X Details Revealed – Super LCD Display, Non-Removable Memory and Optional Speaker Dock

The HTC One X (formerly Edge/Endeavor) is getting all primped and proper for its red carpet debut at this year’s Mobile World Congress in just a few short weeks. Although we already know a few of the device’s specs thanks to a leaked ROM, some new details on HTC’s next flagship superphone have been confirmed from our friends across the pond over at MoDaCo.

Apparently, the HTC One X will include the fan-favorite onscreen buttons, suitable for the latest version of Android 4.0 and the all new Sense 4.0. Other details include an optional speaker dock with Beats Audio earbuds coming standard, micro SIM card slot. Less flattering details revealed that the One X will come equipped with a 4.7-inch Super LCD display and not the previously rumored AMOLED with a 2 color green/amber notification LED. Oh, and the device will not have expandable memory instead opting for 32GB of pre-installed non-removable memory.

Nothing too surprising here, and even with these new leaked deets, the HTC One X is still looking like a beastly device. I’m wondering — any of readers ready to trade-in/up their Galaxy Nexuses for the One X?

    Sensation to One X is a possibility depending on performance.

  • Mark Haynes

    Welp. Changed my mind about this phone. Sounded great up until the no SD card part.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PZEGR3NZ3VSG2SVSDNEJTNEY5M james

    Sounds like the Galaxy Nexus in a crappier HTC package.

    • Daniel Gallo

      Um except the specs on the Galaxys Nexus don’t have a 1.4 ghz quard-core processor…

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PZEGR3NZ3VSG2SVSDNEJTNEY5M james

        No it has a 1.5 ghz duel core built by a better chip maker by far. Let’s not forget Tegra 2 couldn’t compare to single core processors of the same year.

        • Jim Ortmeier

          Actually it’s 1.2GHz dual core in the GNex.

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PZEGR3NZ3VSG2SVSDNEJTNEY5M james

            its underclocked to 1.2 ghz  meaning its still a 1.5 ghz chip.

    • proph

      no i wouldn’t give up my nexus for it, once you use a nexus screen nothing else compares and looking at the screen is what i do all day while using the phone (lots of work emails and browsing etc…). however i would seriously consider replacing my wife’s thunderbolt with this, hopefully it isn’t as thick as the thunderbolt, and i know it can’t have worse battery life.

  • ineptone

    To answer your question – with the GNex being my SGS2: no! I do like the extra in-built memory and the notification LED’s, but expandable memory, totalling up to 48 GB, the NoLED app, and a Super AMOLED Plus display there is no way this will be my next device.

  • drzfr3shboialex

    I’d take it if on T-mobile. Hopefully it has at least 42mbps, but i would prefer 84mbps

  • Giles Peach

     4.7 inches is nice. What about the weight? I know HTC like their alloy unibody thing. Don’t want a brick whacking against my package while I train.
    Sense… I like it, but I wish it was mroe customisable. Now I am running GO Launcher EX on my Note and am enjoying that, although Samsung’s facebook/contacts integration is no where near as good as HTC’s in every way.

      “Don’t want a brick…” I laughed. Nice.

    • craig poland

      I hope that this phone has the same weight as my EVO one reason why I will never buy a Samsung device is because it is too light and plasticy feeling. Oh and Sprint 4G LTE support is a must!!

    • http://www.mark717.com Mark Seven

      Don’t be fooled, my HTC Rezound’s facebook/contacts integration doesn’t work at all.  It won’t stay synced and I’ve tried every solution besides a factory reset (which I dread).  It’s the one thing I hate about this phone.  I am also running Go Launcher Ex btw.  Best thing ever.

  • Matthew Merrick

    This phone was very tempting, even halfway through the article. when it said onscreen buttons i was almost convinced…. then i saw that it had an LCD screen. WTF. once you go AMOLED you never go back .

    • AJA0

      I went from the Droid Charge to the Bionic.

  • Neil

    Great, except for the card slot.

    • feztheforeigner

      And non removable battery…

  • Asdfghjkl

    Haha that’s funny except the fact that the galaxy nexus doesn’t have a quad-core 1.4 ghz processor.

  • Jason Miller

    will keep my G2

  • abc

    No micro SD slot? :(

    No longer excited about this phone.

  • Torish

    I thought this would be my next phone, but no SD slot is always going to be a deal breaker. WTF HTC, you’re turning into Samsung with moves like that. It’s decisions like that which make me despise Samsung products.

  • YamiYaiba

    iPhone-esque non-removable/upgradeable anything is an Android dealbreaker for me. The only advantage this thing has over my Rezound is the processor. That may be pretty significant, but I’m happy with my ICS-packing Rezound. 16gb onboard and 32 in the slot works for me. A partitioned 32GB memory isn’t enough.

  • Beyond_Max_Power

    I will be watching this phone closely.  Sucks as I really need a new phone and I can’t find one that I really want.  I technically am not up for an upgrade until early April, but I can get a phone at the discounted price right now.  SD slot means nothing to me as I have never taken out my SD card.  

  • T-MaN

    I HAVE AN HTC…. IT’S INCREDIBLE….. BUT A PHONE WITHOUT THE BASICS (SD, NICE SCREEN, ETC.) IS A NO GO FOR ME. I’M SO DISAPPOINTED IN HTC….. WTF……. YOU DROPPED THE BALL AGAIN. YOU GET SO CLOSE TO SECURING FAITHFUL CUSTOMERS…. THEN YOU KICK US IN THE BALLS.

    • craig poland

      Wait until MWC and the showcase of these phones only then can we be pissed or excited!!!

  • slide83

    On-screen buttons? Wth, the pic clearly shows it has capacitive buttons….

    • Bob Burgess

      This image is really old. This is the only image associated with the phone, but it came out months ago. The final version could/will be significantly different. Including on-screen buttons.

  • Cipher Zero

    What is the deal with non-removable batteries and non-expandable memory?! It is becoming more common as time goes on. It doesn’t matter which phone I’ve owned (Android, not feature phones),I’ve always had an extra battery or two in my pocket or glove compartment :/

  • squiddy20

    I’d just like to point out that “memory” and “storage” are two completely different things. Memory refers to RAM, while storage refers to the area where your pics, videos, music, etc are. You can’t put music in “memory” (RAM).
    Second paragraph down: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_data_storage

    • Jim Ortmeier

      I think they mean storage. I seriously doubt they’re going to have a phone with 32GB of RAM. What they are talking about is 32GB of storage period, no expandability. It may be faster having the memory hardwired in, but I haven’t had a problem with lag when retrieving files from my microsd, and 16 of the 32GB on it is used up only because I haven’t gotten around to adding the rest of my music & videos. No expandable memory or storage or whatever you want to call it is a dealbreaker for me. The only way I’d go to a fixed memory phone is if there weren’t any available with microsd slots.

  • Kja

    Looks like a good replacement for my tbolt. Same size and the face looks exactly the same

    • Alec Ritter

      Hey Kja, about your tbolt.. Its screen is about .4 in smaller than the HTC One X. Just letting you know because you said they are the same size.

  • http://www.facebook.com/lucyparanormal Daniel Tiberius

    No Expandable Memory = Bye Bye Htc

    • Badgerboy1977

      I disagree, 32gb is more than enough for Apps and a large amount of media also HTC are providing a massive amount of Dropbox storage along with it. So its really not the problem you think its going to be.

      • Torish

        Cloud storage of media would be perfect if it wasn’t for the fact that the carriers only offer a puny 5-10gb of data. Until I can stream a 720p movie everyday without hitting some arbitrarily tiny limit we need all the storage we can get.

  • tony

    finally i can replace my good old droid x lol

  • http://www.mark717.com Mark Seven

    The screen is a disappointment, looks like I’ll hold on to my Rezound until I know more.

  • http://www.facebook.com/tonyperani Anthony Peran

    HTC products have all been such disappointments. :( How is that possible?
