HTC has officially announced that the Desire X will be released sometime in September. Here what you can expect from the successor to the original HTC Desire.
The HTC Desire X features a 4-inch WVGA LCD display with a 480×800 resolution. It will be powered by a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor. It will come loaded with 4GB of internal storage that can be expanded with a microSD slot. It comes with a 5-megapixel camera and a 1650mAh battery that should last the whole day. The Desire X will run on Ice Cream Sandwich.
There is no exact price yet but HTC have stated that the Desire X will cost somewhere between the Desire C (£180) and the One V (£229). However, if the Desire X doesn’t tickle your taste buds then there are some alternatives which you can choose from. The Sony Xperia U, Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 and the ZTE Grand X all pack dual-core processors. However, in terms of design and processing the Desire X seems to outweigh all three in our eyes. It’s more solid than the ZTE Grand X, supports a microSD slot unlike the Sony Xperia U and looks impressive in design and processing compared to the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2.
Overall, the Desire X seems very impressive with its 1GHz processor and 4-inch WVGA display that has been treated with the same optical lamination as the One X.
