The AT&T variant of the HTC One X is now available
from the carrier at a price of $199.99 with a signed two-year pact. The model is not endowed with the quad-core Tegra 3 like the international version of the phone
, due to compatibility issues with LTE. But based on benchmark readings, you won't notice any drop off in performance with the dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 under the hood. The Adreno 225 GPU takes care of the graphics side of things.
The AT&T HTC One X is equipped with a 4.7 inch Super LCD 2 display offering 720p resolution and a high pixel density reading of 312 ppi. 1GB of RAM is on board and the phone has 16GB of native memory which cannot be expanded since there is no microSD slot on the unit. The 8MP camera on back has an LED flash and AF and captures video in 1080p. For video chats and self-portraits, there is a 1.3MP front-facing camera. The camera on the HTC One X has already been well received
by those who had received their phone a few days earlier than expected. Android 4.0 is installed out of the box with Sense 4.0 running on top.
Already we have had a minor controversy as the AT&T version of the HTC One X comes with a locked bootloader
. The Taiwan based manufacturer says that sometimes there are restrictions that prevent an HTC phone from having its bootloader unlocked. By using the word "restrictions
," HTC is believed to be pointing at AT&T.
