AT&T HTC One X price dropping to $99.99 on Sunday?

AT&T HTC One X price dropping to $99.99 on Sunday?
The HTC One X is probably one of the best designed and greatest Android phones at the moment, but even it cannot withstand the pressure from Samsung’s Galaxy S III and now rumors have it that AT&T will slash the price of the One X by $100 to the very affordable $99.99 on a two-year contract. The whispers started to form on XDA Developers forums and claim that on Sunday, AT&T will slash the price.

The AT&T HTC One X runs on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 chip with integrated LTE and manufactured on battery-savvy 28nm technology, so it’s definitely on par with the Galaxy S III in terms of productivity.

"This is the new price point, no special or deal," XDA Devs member surflamj says.

That’s not the only interesting thing, though - the Samsung Galaxy S III in daring red is also coming soon and will be available for pre-order on Sunday as well.

Now, this is definitely still a rumor but if we were buying our phone on AT&T right now, we’d definitely wait for Sunday to see if that’s true. In the meantime let us know which one would you pick - a more affordable HTC One X or the brand new Galaxy S III?

$99 for the OneX? Xperia S would have to be free on contract.

Let's see, Galaxy Note 249, Galaxy s 3 199, have removable batteries. Other phones 99, have non removable batteries. Same or simular specs. Is this telling you something?

Agree, HTC made a big mistake there. But 1X is a bit laggy unlike GS3, and no memory expansion slot also.

Great price, that's what Android all about. Look at that ageing 4S, still $200? When we have JB on it, that will be an amazing masterpiece.

Ooops yeah I was referring to the international version, 32gb is enough but yeah 16gb is so so. But for $99 on contract that's still a bargain don't you think?

even if its big what happened if you use up all your space and can't use it any more? not going to store all my music/pics/data in the cloud. i like to at least remove some of it on my sd card.

I guess you wouldn't want to keep all those music/pics/data in your phone. Backup everything in your PC. 32GB is big for a portable device. Use a PC for real storage.

I was just about to announce that. I have the Inspire 4G that makes me want to throw it into the Mississippi River. They offered the One X as an insurance replacement for $125, but im not doing that when they lower it for new or upgradable subscribers at $99 i'll have to either wait for the Note to go down in price or get the Note II whenever it becomes available

18. InspectorGadget80 unregistered

yep you're right and they now have a red GS III

This is the best timing! I was at the AT&T store Thursday. The price was $199 for the HTC One X.. I almost went for the Motorola Atrix HD that day, but decided to think on it a night. On Friday, I caught the news online that Radio Shack was lowering the HTC One X to $99 on Sunday. The AT&T store already had it lowered to that price by noon Friday! Of course, I picked one up at that price. LOVE IT!!
