Full HTC one x specs reveal a true flagship

Full HTC one x specs reveal a true flagship
HTC onex (no longer the One X) rumors have been plentiful over the past few weeks as the device nears launch, but FullGSM looks to have a full spec sheet on it and there are still plenty of surprises.  As reported earlier, the HTC onex will feature a Super 4+1 Quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor with 1GB of RAM and 32GB of on-board memory (26GB available to the user.)  In addition to on-board  memory, the HTC onex will give users 25GB of cloud storage via DropBox for 2 years.  The 4.7" Super LCD2 display will have a 720p resolution with Gorilla Glass, and the built-in battery will be 1800mAh.  All this is packed into an aluminum unibody measuring just 134.4 x 69.9 x 9.3mm thin.

Connectivity options are plentiful, with the HTC onex supporting NFC (Google Wallet compatible), wireless HDMI, DLNA, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi b/g/n and GPS.  In addition to a microUSB connector, the HTC onex has a 5-pin Pogo connector for audio and charging (think a multimedia dock here).  The HTC onex has Beats Audio in tow, has dual microphones with noise cancellation and stereo voice recording and is HD voice compliant.

As if these weren't enough, the camera looks to be the real jewel of the HTC onex.  The front camera is a standard 1.3MP, but the 8MP rear camera has all kinds of tricks up its sleeve.  For starters, there is a dedicated image chip in the HTC onex, which combined with an f2.0 aperture, BSI sensor and 5 stage LED "Smart Flash" should make for vastly improved low-light images.  The HTC onex has a 28mm wide angle lens and is capable of 1080p video capture.  Thanks to the dual shutter camera module you will be able to snap still images while recording your HD video.

In a landscape where the top Android phone seems to vary from month-to-month, the HTC onex is making a strong play as the phone to have this year.  We'll of course be live at HTC's press conference at 3PM EST Sunday afternoon!

First of all this is the first post i have seen from brian k and i like it. About the phone: The battery is disapointing with the droid razr maxx out i expect all flagships phones to have atleast a 2000mah battery. Hopefully the tegra 3 can save this phone. Anyway i love the power and camera the screen and beats all look good aswell. Htc is coming back strong watch out samsung.

Well there's some things to note here: First of all, the phone does not have LTE on it just HSPA+ for now. This means that it wouldn't be draining as much power as the Droid RAZR will. Secondly, the quad core chip is supposed to use less power than the dual-core Tegra chip. So, I would think once they add LTE that perhaps they would put a larger battery in.

I realize the tegra is supposed to be better but I am skeptical because of 720p screen and 1800 seems a little skimpy to me considering other phones larger batteries. Its disappointing

What does a screen's resolution have to deal with it's battery? The screen size does, but not the screen resolution. All I'm saying is that you should NOTE that there are some things different going for this phone than other phones. Also, the LG 4x HD has an IPS display which use more power than a normal LCD display which is possibly why it's battery is larger as well.

I thought I should add to my previous comment a case in which screen resolution COULD affect battery life and that is if the processor or GPU have to work harder to create the resolution images (usually when you have an older CPU or GPU that doesn't support HD). However, in this case, the Tegra 3 processor and GPU can actually handle resolutions far beyond 720p, so it shouldn't affect battery life at all.

But AH IPS panel is supposed to consume less power than a normal IPS panel, as they claim.

I don't know if that is what is in the LG 4X HD or not. But even so, how does it compare to an S-LCD display? That would be the real question.

http://mobilook.com/CellphoneBasics.asp Go to controls and navigation and read the second to last paragraph. I will quote it for you below. "High-resolution screens consume more battery power." This is what came up in a google search.

Okay first of all just because you Google something, doesn't mean you will always come up with the right answer. Secondly, I added to my comment an instance in which a high resolution display would affect the battery life. Because these newer processors can handle higher resolution displays far beyond 720p (in this case the Tegra 3 can handle resolutions up to 2048 x 1536) means that it would put such a miniscule (pretty much non-existant) strain on the GPU and processor. Third, the site you found seems like it hasn't been updated in a while. I am not saying that it couldn't affect battery life, but in reality with today's technology the strain it puts on the processor and GPU are so small it is not even worth noting as a strain on the battery. Now, if this was a device using a CPU/GPU combo from 2008 to power that 720p display, then yeah you could definitely say it would. But, because of these newer processors handling such higher resolutions, 720p wouldn't be that much of a strain. So, all I'm saying is that the size of the display as well as the technology of the display is more noteworthy of battery life than the resolution of the display.

And one other instance in which it would matter is if you are playing a graphical game in a higher definition. So, I would suppose if you are one of those people that likes to do graphical things on your device in higher resolution, then yes you could make that argument. But, I think we are getting ahead of ourselves. Until we actually see the device as well as what they are estimating the battery to be at, we can't say one way or another whether 1800 mAh is enough. I was simply just saying that your initial complaint that since other phones have over 2000 mAh means this won't be enough was wrong to assume because you weren't taking into account those other phones have LTE as well as dual-core instead of a 4+1 chip.

first of all I don't have time to argue with you Second of all if you can find a link to back what you said I will concede however everything that I have found is contrary to that. Lastly my original point was that the battery was small like a lot of other HTC phones of the past and I thought they were going to be competitive with battery size. I didn't say it was going to have bad battery life. Also there is most likely going to be an LTE version for version. Not to mention this phone has a ips screen.

resolution plays a minimal role in battery drain. screen size, tech, ppi, and brightness play a much much bigger role in how much the screen drains the battery.

I never said it did but said it was a factor.

Yeah could have been better if battery is larger atleast 2000mAh..even my year old atrix has more than 1800 and its screen is only 4!!

LG 4X HD has a 2150mAh battery and almost the exact same stats. just sayin'.

Better sure but thats like an obese person loosing a couple of pounds. Yeah they look better but are no where closr to looking good.

Except for the fact that it has an IPS display which uses more power than a normal LCD display. An IPS display has two transistors for every pixel instead of just one. This in turn requires more battery to power it.

IPS actualy uses less power than standard LCD, up to 50% less power...do your homework before you say such thing but we will see what S-LCD 2 has to ofter

you are dumb, IPS uses less battery...

Even LG is using 2000mah+ batteries. Battery life with an 1800mah isn't great so with those new specs I can imagine it even being worst.

HTC is continuing to skimp on batteries. It happened with the thunderbolt and rezouned. I though they learned their lesson and even though this is better its still not competitive. If LG can do it why not htc.

Well, I think (hope) they have, but its going to take time for the bigger batteries to show up. If this phone is coming out this month, it was designed atleast 6 months ago, so the battery compartment is already set. By this time next year, if they've gotten the message, we'll see phones with acceptable batteries.

The one x(can't do a superscript :-( ) definitely sounds like one of the top tier phones for 2012. (Thumbsup) I wonder when (if?) it is going to show up on VZW with an LTE radio.

Built in battery huh...lets see if this HTC phone gets as much hate for it than Moto phones...
