We have been waiting to see more details about the HTC One X (Previously known as HTC Endeavor and Edge) for a while. Mobile World Congress is finally taking off, and HTC has given us our fix of what could be your next smartphone. The HTC One X is probably the main highlight of HTC’s press event, and brings some of the best specs we have seen in a while.
This Quad-Core device is no weak link. It sports a Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, Android 4.0 (With HTC’s new Sense 4.0), a 4.7-inch 720p Super LCD display and an f2.0 8 MP rear-facing camera capable of 1080p recording.
AT&T has just announced that it will be bringing this device to the States, as an exclusive. Except the US version will not come with a Tegra 3 processor. Instead, the US HTC One X will pack a 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor.
This may not sound as exciting as the international version, but we will have to wait and see how the US version performs. More details about the launch are to come within 60 days, so stay tuned to see more details about when this bad boy will hit your market.
NVIDIA Delivers Quad-Core Performance in New HTC One X
BARCELONA, Spain—Feb. 26, 2012—NVIDIA today announced that its NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 mobile processor, the world’s only 4-PLUS-1™ quad-core processor, is powering the new HTC One™ X unveiled at Mobile World Congress. The smartphone represents the first collaboration between the two companies.
The NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor features a unique 4-PLUS-1 quad-core architecture that delivers outstanding performance and exceptional battery life. It does this by progressively powering on each of its four main CPU cores as they’re needed for increasingly more demanding tasks, and relying on its fifth battery saver core for less demanding tasks and active standby mode. Tegra 3’s 12-core GPU enables consumers to enjoy console-quality gaming, as well as 1080p HD video capabilities unlike anything seen before on a smartphone.
“The HTC One X with Tegra 3 provides an experience that consumers will absolutely love,” said Kouji Kodera, Chief Product Officer at HTC. “We knew our next super phone had to be fantastic. That’s why we chose to work with NVIDIA.”
“HTC has quickly become one of the world’s most innovative makers of mobile devices,” said Michael Rayfield, General Manager of the Mobile business at NVIDIA. “The HTC One X exemplifies what we’ve come to expect from one of the world’s top phone makers.”
