HTC introduces One X with 1.5GHz Quad-Core Processor

HTC 4x

HTC on Sunday introduced the HTC One X, the company’s highly anticipated 1.5GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3-powered smartphone, and oh is it joyous. Our own Noah Kravitz spent some time with the One X ahead of the show and said the device’s 4.7-inch Super LCD 2 1280 x 720-pixel resolution display was stunning. The device also has a machined polycarbonate casing that’s scratch resistant.

Other features include an 8-megapixel camera capable of recording 1080p video, Sense 4.0, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera with support for 720p HD video chats, a 1,800mAh battery, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of on-board storage and even a Dropbox partnership which provides 25GB of additional storage for two years.

HTC told Noah that it put a “ton” of research and development into the¬†aforementioned¬†ImageChip technology and that the company believes it’s truly the best camera it has ever introduced on a smartphone. ImageChip tech will be available on every HTC “One” device. The phone’s camera has an f2.0 aperture, which allows 40% more light in than HTC’s f 2.4 aperture lenses. Shots have just a 0.7 second capture time, too.

NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 chip should offer noticeable improvements in gaming, browsing, Flash, wireless 1080p streaming (with an accessory) and battery life. Tegra 3 includes a “fifth core” that helps manage the processor’s overall power envelope.

The HTC One X should be available within 60 days and will launch in white with a black screen and all black. It’s currently unclear who will offer the One X or how much it will retail for once it hits store shelves.
