HTC One XC spotted in China, powered by quad-core Snapdragon S4 chip

HTC One XC spotted in China, powered by quad-core Snapdragon S4 chip
First the good news: HTC just announced its latest beast of a smartphone, powered by a quad-core Snapdragon S4 chip. Details about the HTC One XC, as the device is called, were unveiled during the Chinese Telecommunications Fair. Now the not so good news: we aren't sure whether the handset will ever be sold outside of the Chinese market, which might disappoint hardcore Android fans from around the world.

In case you're wondering what you'll be missing on, here is what we know about the HTC One XC: it has a two-tone, black and gold design that kind of reminds us of the HTC EVO 4G LTE for Sprint. The quad-core Snapdragon S4 chip runs at 1.5GHz and is paired with 1GB of RAM.

A 4.7-inch screen with resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels graces its front, and the panel used is probably identical to the one on the HTC One X. On its back resides an 8-megapixel camera with F/2.0 aperture and 28mm wide lens.

In China, the HTC One XC will be competing with the Xiaomi Mi-Two, which also boasts a quad-core S4 processor, 720p screen, and identical 8-megapixel camera. Considering the latter will be priced at about $310, it will be interesting to see how much HTC will be asking for its quad-core beast.

What I really want from HTC right now: Aluminum unibody with removable battery (like dhd), or just a massive one. 64gb built in, 8X camera and ff one too, 2gb, quadcore krait, that 5inch 1080p ;) and 8x audio

It's a beast. Any news on software? Sense 4.1 with ICS or Jelly Bean? I love that black/gold look. Please make a global version of this.

I want to see if I can get one of these. I would look so damn cool with a Gold, quad-core, EVO looking thing that's only sold in China.
