Leaks have revealed the HTC’s newest device the Desire X, which was long believed to be the HTC Proto. The renamed handset is reportedly part of this company’s new affordable smartphone line, which looks to offer consumer mid-range specs at lower prices.
As of now, the HTC Desire X is expected to have 4-inch WVGA display with 800 x 480 resolution, roughly offering 233ppi pixel density. It will run on Android 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and Sense UI 4.1, making it the only smartphone outside of the “One” series to use the new interface.
The device will apparently be much smaller than the HTC One X, with its sleek light-weight frame coming in at 114g, and sized at 118.4 x 62.3 x 9.3mm. The device will also supposedly house a 1.0 GHz dual-core processor — at the moment the maker has yet to be confirmed though speculation points to Qualcomm with the actual make being the Qualcomm S4.
While not much else is known at this point, it is likely that we will have more details come the IFA trade show in Berlin this week.
As the spec sheet indicates the HTC Desire X appears to be a mid-range handset that will look to reside right in the middle of the preexisting HTC One X and One V, which would hypothetically put the device somewhere in the ballpark of around $450, though this is just speculation. Unfortunately the price will remain uncertain until HTC reveals the information.
