HTC’s flagship Android phone to be called One X, Ville to be called One S [updated]

The only leaked image of the HTC Endeavor

HTC’s flagship smartphone with a quad-core Tegra 3 processor has so many codenames that it has been hard to keep up with the device. First there was Edge, then Endeavor, and Supreme. Now Evan Blass of PocketNow is reporting the device will go to market with the name HTC One X.

According to his sources, the “X” will be placed as superscript above the word “One” for branding purposes. Evan Blass has been blogging since 2005 and has become one of the top HTC insiders, so we believe this information to be accurate.

Rumored specs of the HTC One X include:

  • Quad-core 1.5 GHz Tegra 3 processor
  • Android 4.0 with Sense UI 4.0
  • 4.7-inch display with 720p resolution
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 32 GB internal storage
  • Backlit 8 MP rear camera with 28-millimeter, f/2.2 lens
  • 1.3 MP front-camera
  • Beats Audio
  • HSPA+ 21 Mbps support (bands 850, 900,1800,1900,)
  • WiFi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC
  • Slightly over 10 mm thick

With all the recent leaks, the HTC One X could be the most impressive Android phone to date. It will feature all the latest hardware specs, along with Android 4.0, Sense UI 4.0, possible PlayStation certification, and Beats streaming music service.

Digitimes recently reported that over 20 carriers had placed orders for the HTC One X, so we expect this device to launch in all the large markets.

We already billed Mobile World Congress 2012 as the quad-core phone show, and it appears HTC could walk away with the best device of the show.

Update: Chris Davies of Slashgear is reporting that the device we have been referring to as HTC Ville, will launch as the HTC One S. Some sites are calling this a “mid-range” device because it features a dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, but Qualcomm has hinted that their new Krait CPU architecture will out-perform Tegra 3.
