HTC unveils the affordable Desire X


Today HTC announced the Desire X, an affordable take on their One series. Just like the One X and One S, the Desire X features HTC’s proprietary ImageChip, Beats audio, and Snapdragon S4 processor. The HTC Desire X will be available in selected markets across EMEA and Asia Pacific from September 2012.

“HTC Desire X is an extension of your social life,” said Jason Mackenzie, President, Global Sales and Marketing for HTC Corporation. “If you’re looking to enjoy and share high quality multimedia, wherever you are, this is the phone for you. It not only looks and sounds great, but also provides a super-fast, highly personal mobile experience at a great price.”

Highlights of the Desire X include:

  • Android 4.0 with HTC Sense
  • 4-inch super LCD WVGA screen
  • Dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Play
  • 5 megapixel camera with HTC’s proprietary ImageChip, a f/2.0, 28mm wide-angle lens, BSI sensor, HDR mode and automatic adjustable flash
  • 768 MB RAM, 4 GB internal storage
  • User replaceable 1650 mAh battery
  • microSD expansion slot
  • Beats Audio

The overall specs of the Desire X are on the level of the HTC One V, which currently sells for around $299, so we would expect it to be sold for $299 or less. This device probably won’t make it to the US, but it gives us an idea of where HTC’s affordable phones are headed.
