Update: Checkout our HTC One S review.
Unibody has long been a term relagated to Apple’s Macbooks. However, they’re not the only player in the space to boast this design feature, and now HTC is one upping the Cupertino company by releasing a unibody aluminum smartphone, the HTC One (how fitting).
Suffice to say the HTC One is a looker. It will be available on a variety of carriers when it releases later this year with slightly different monikers, but the core of the phone will largely remain same; the variation will be in screen size and processing speed.
Nevertheless, as far as AT&T’s version goes, the HTC One X will sports a 4.7-inch Super LCD touchscreen that should be fit for king, 16GB of storage, 1GB of RAM and a 1.5Ghz dual core Qualcomm MSM8960 processor. As you’ve probably suspected it’s 4G ready, though it will play nice with older, 3G networks. The camera is nothing short of stellar, at least on paper, as it rocks an 8 megapixel sensor that can open wider than some of today’s point of shoots; f/2.0. This latter feature should equate to superior low light shots as well as a nasty depth of field. Complementing that is an LED smart flash, 1080p full HD video, Android 4.0 (the first smartphone to ship with the OS), HTC Sense 4.0 and a body that is no thinner than 9.3mm thick (T-Mobile’s HTC One S is 7.95mm thick, but boasts a smaller 4.3-inch screen). Lastly, HTC has infused the One with Beats audio tech for what the company claims is superior sound over the norm. We assume it will ship with Beats headphones, but we can’t find any proof of that yet.
Expect the HTC One X to hit AT&T sometime this Spring with a cost that will be – in our best estimates – around $300.
