HTC One X marks the spot as being AT&T's first Beats Audio and Sense 4.0 smartphone
No longer do we need to search for and wide for HTC’s next big thing, well, that’s because AT&T has finally stumbled upon that big giant X that marks the spot. And just like that folks, AT&T officially announced today that the remarkable HTC One X will be coming in the coming months, thus, being AT&T’s very first HTC smartphone to feature Beats Audio and the new Sense 4.0 experience.

Regarded as a multimedia juggernaut, the HTC One X for AT&T will be flaunting a mighty 4.7-inch 720p HD display with Gorilla Glass, which will be further enhanced thanks to its wide-viewing angles and its ability to connect it to a TV wire-free with the aid of an optional wireless HDMI adapter. Running the show from behind the scenes, its next-generation 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor (no quad-core folks) will be doing its best to keep things rolling along. Not surprisingly, it’ll be flying through the air with its 4G LTE connectivity as well, but for those concerned about battery consumption, it’s worth mentioning that it’ll be carrying along an 1,800 mAh battery – so yeah, let’s see how it’ll handle all of that.

Aside from its muscle power, the HTC One X is also a very capable photo-taking smartphone, thanks to its 8-megapixel auto-focus camera that features an F2.0 lens and back illuminated sensor for better image quality in low lighting. Much like some of the other camera-centric smartphone from HTC we’ve seen, it’s going to be filled to the brim with a healthy set of shooting modes to no doubt keep people amused, while catching the moment instantaneously thanks to its lightning fast operation. Also, 1080p HD video recording will be in tow along with slow motion recording at 60 frames per second.

Finally, the HTC One X is AT&T’s first smartphone to offer Beats Audio built-in to the hardware and software – essentially giving it one of the richest audio experiences around. For those big into the whole audio scene, AT&T will start carrying exclusive Beats accessories this spring to accent this audio robust device. And of course, there’s that new HTC Sense 4.0 experience on top of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which will no doubt bring some new enhancements and features to cement it as one of the premier customized Android experiences out there.

Are you teased yet? Well, you’ll probably want to keep in the excitement because its pricing and release date have not been publicly announced, but at least we can keep in mind about spring bringing in better weather. Until then, let’s cross our fingers!

Check out the new promotion video of the handset below.

**Updated #2**
From the looks of it, AT&T's version of the HTC One X is also known as the HTC One XL, which both feature 4G LTE connectivity and a dual-core processor. Meanwhile, the international version of the HTC One X, will offer HSPA+ 42Mbps speeds and a mighty 1.5GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor. The video below is of the HTC One XL, or as some AT&T folks would say, is their version of the HTC One X.

YES! I was hoping at least one of HTC's major announced phones would make it to AT&T :D

So it does have LTE. This doesn't look good as far as battery goes.

i was just lookimg at the video and this should be a quad core, but than i thought lte isnt ready for the quad core. the unlocked version may be quad core but the carriers will get the dual core.

gsm version is quad but the at&t version is dual core s4 as it supports lte where as the tegra 3 would be silly for anyone to release a flagship device in the US that has not got lte

Well, at least it's better to have a dual-core Snapdragon processor rather than having nothing.

I'd be curious to see the performance vs the quad core.

Yes! I'm so happy I live in Europe and the carriers here will offer both X with T3 and S with S4...because we don't have LTE...

i dont get why Tmobile didnt pick up the T3 version of the One since its capable of 42mb/s HSPA+, instead of just the dual core crapdragon. Way to miss an opportunity to outshine the competition. Coulda been the first american quad core.

This is b.s. AT&T gets dual core while Europe gets TEGRA 3 QUAD CORE? The only two things I'm disappointing bout this model no SD CARD SUPPOR or TEGRA 3 for the U.S. versoin. I'll pass I'll be getting my SONY iON instead.

SO much potential....BUT they choose to FAIL. Small non removable battery, no micro sd card slot, and lcd screen. Who ever buys this phone is telling htc that all this is ok. Vote with your wallet folks, dont sacrifice.
