The Desire X Is Official – Another Android Smartphone From The Utterly Lost Company That HTC Is
Remember HTC’s promise to simplify and reduce the number of products it’d launch, when it first unveiled the One series? Yeah, well that promise is gone to the wind, as the Taiwanese company continues to launch products which either slightly improve upon the recent one, or they are just that, without any meaning, on the market. The Desire X is the latest example of the company’s weird strategy, and a broken promise.
The Desire X comes with a 4″ Super LCD display, and a dual core Snapdragon processor, clocked at 1 GHz. There’s a low-end’ish Adreno 203 GPU, but Jelly Bean is nowhere in sight. It still comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which was launched more than 10 months back. Jelly Bean has been around for a month and a half, but I assume HTC and other white collar OEMs would have had access to the code quite earlier.
On the memory front, there’s 768 MB RAM, and 4 GB internal memory, which can be expanded using a microSD card. There’s a 5 MP camera on the back, along with an LED flash, but sadly, it can only do 480p recording. Guess the dual core ain’t enough, eh? /s
No mention about the price, but it’ll be on sale in Europe and Asia by mid-September. If you were my friend, I’d advise you against getting it, but you are free to decide yourself.
