HTC One X

The HTC One X is coming to AT&T and is the highest end device in the new HTC One series. The HTC One X specs include:

  • Qualcomm 1.5 GHz Snapdragon dual-core processor
  • AT&T LTE data support
  • Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS
  • 4.7 inch HD Super LCD display
  • 8 megapixel camera with new HTC ImageChip
  • Front facing VGA camera
  • Beats Audio available universally in the device
  • 16GB integrated storage with no expansion capability
  • Integrated 1800 mAh battery that is non-removable

There is of course no pricing information and availability is simply stated as "the coming months".

HTC One S

The HTC One S will be coming to T-Mobile USA this spring for an undisclosed price. The HTC One S specs include:

  • Qualcomm 1.5 GHz Snapdragon dual-core processor
  • T-Mobile HSPA+ (42 Mbps network) data support

  • Beats Audio available universally in the device
  • 16GB integrated storage with no expansion capability
  • Integrated 1650 mAh battery that is non-removable

As a T-Mobile customer, I will definitely have to consider this device when it launches.

HTC One V

The smallest of the new HTC One series is the HTC One V. Specs for this phone include:

  • Qualcomm 1.5 GHz Snapdragon dual-core processor
  • Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS
  • 3.7 inch 480x800 display
  • 5 megapixel camera with new HTC ImageChip
  • Front facing VGA camera

All of these phones have advanced camera optics with F2.0 aperture and 28mm lens 1080p HD video recording, along with a dedicated image chip. Beats Audio is also included in all of them so they should be great for the audio experience.

  • These phones are going to have to be very impressive...

    If they want me to switch from Sprint. I was considering Verizon, but never ATT and was not even thinking about Tmobile. I'll wait and see if I can find some processor comparisons with the tegra3 phones that are coming out.
