Taiwanese handset-maker HTC has officially announced that it much-awaited One X smartphone will hit the AT&T stores on May 6; with the pre-orders for the handset to begin from April 22.
Priced at $200, with a two-year service contract from AT&T, the HTC One X will be the first AT&T smartphone to be powered by the latest Android OS version - the Android 4.0 `Ice cream Sandwich.'
To run on the high-speed 4G LTE network of AT&T, the carrier's version of HTC One X will be equipped with Qualcomm's dual-core Snapdragon processor, capable of hitting a speed of 1.5 GHz. The quad-core Tegra 3 processor, for which the One X has particularly been in the spotlight, will not come aboard the handset's AT&T version because of its lack of compatibility with the carrier 4G network.
However, some of the other attractive specifications of the HTC One X include a 4.7-inch IPS LCD2 screen with 720p display; 1GB of RAM; 16GB on-board storage capacity; an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash support; and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. Though the handset supports 4G network, it will run on the slower 3G network in areas where the high-speed network is not available.
The HTC One X also brings aboard the built-in Beats Audio integration to give the users a world-class music listening experience. But to gain maximum advantage of this feature, users will require any one of the following Beats-compatible accessories --- Beats Solo HD headphone, Beats In-ear headphone, Wireless HD Stereo Bluetooth headphone, or the exclusive Beatbox from AT&T.
