Leaked documents from the carrier supposedly unveil the intended release date
Canadian mobile phone carrier Rogers is reportedly set to make the HTC One X smartphone available as soon as April 20th, after putting it up on pre-order a few weeks ago.Nothing has been officially announced on the matter for the time being, but leaked documents from the company show that things might indeed be this way.
At the moment, the smartphone is listed on the operator’s website as “Coming Soon,” and users can place pre-orders for it to receive their units when the official release occurs.
Rogers has the phone available online for reservations for $169.99 (around 130 Euro) with the signing of a three-year contract agreement on a $62.35 (47 Euro) per month plan.
The One X is the first smartphone from HTC to arrive on shelves with a quad-core application processor inside, while running under Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.
The handset also features a large 4.7-inch touchscreen display capable of delivering an HD 720p resolution, and sports 1GB of RAM, along with a 32 GB internal storage space.
The specifications list of this mobile phone shows an 8-megapixel photo snapper with support for HD video recording, along with a 1.3MP camera on the front, for making video calls.
“HTC One X offers one of the best camera experiences you’ll find on a smartphone, so good you’ll never need a separate point and shoot digital camera again. HTC One X’s 8MP camera includes an F2.0 aperture, which means you can expect clear, colourful images, even in lowlight situations,” Rogers explains.
“A super-fast shutter speed lets you jump instantly from the lock screen to your camera and snap up to 20 shots in a matter of seconds by holding down the shutter button. You can even shoot 1080p video and capture still photos at the same time, or capture photos directly from the video when you play back the recording.”
The HTC One X also packs support for fast connectivity options, though it gains LTE capabilities by replacing the aforementioned quad-core CPU with a dual-core chip from Qualcomm.
