HTC Desire X leaks out: beautiful Android mid-ranger with a 4.0-inch screen
The HTC Desire X, the handset we've known under the HTC Proto codename until just a few days ago, has finally appeared in its full glory, courtesy of Chinese ePrice's blurry cam. Along with the leaked pictures come the full technical details about the upcoming Desire X, so here's what it will look like.

First, the Desire X will come with a 4.0-inch WVGA Super LCD display. Under the hood, a dual-core 1GHz processor powers Android Ice Cream Sandwich skinned with HTC's latest Sense user interface. The Desire X will feature a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera with a backside illuminated sensor for better low-light performance. The phone also sports 4GB of internal storage, expandable via a microSD card slot and a removable 1,650mAh battery.

Overall, the Desire X looks staggeringly similar to the already released dual-SIM HTC Desire V. The looks and inner stuffing are nearly identical save for the dual-SIM functionality and the fact that the Desire X double the number of processor cores.

What we don't know about the upcoming HTC Android mid-ranger is the price which will be key for the success of the Desire X in a crowded market. But good news is that the device is expected to get officially unveiled in just a couple of days at IFA 2012 - stay tuned!

I would still rather choose one s over this.

Yes you will... But some customer still choose this because of expandable sd card and removable battery... Plus the spec is reasonable enough to operate

i see what you did, that's why i am ridiculing your comment. you are comparing the Desire X with the One S by favoring the latter over the former.

how could you ridicule it if one s and desire x are surely, comparable. Being in mid-range category? What's ridiculous is comparing one s and one x. :)

Of course, this is meant to be cheaper than One S.

If they dont put bezel around that camera, it will be sued by apple because apple placed camera at the same place.... I think in order to differentiate, they modifed the design,,,,,,

I see they've omitted the front facing camera again. HTC one v would have been awesome if it had front facing.
