It's the real deal: HTC One X coming to AT&T on May 6th for $199.99 on contract
The first Android device to launch from AT&T with Android 4.0 installed, the HTC One X, will be available to AT&T customers starting on May 6th. The flagship model will be priced at $199.99 with a signed 2-year contract. Other AT&T firsts with this model include it being the first Beats Audio device for the mobile operator and the One X is also the carrier's first HTC unit with Sense 4.0 aboard.

Pre-orders will be accepted starting April 22nd online and at AT&T locations. This version of the HTC One X replaces the quad-core Tegra 3 with the dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor which features integrated LTE connectivity. This should allow for better battery life than seen on other LTE models that require a separate radio. All of a sudden that unit up for sale on Craigslist yesterday (which was subsequently taken down) doesn't seem like a great deal anymore.

Wife has the Note for couple weeks now and loves it! I am not a touchwiz fan and prefer the layout of HTC Sense, and will be getting the One X on the 6th i think. The S3 will be another powerhouse, but need to wait till the 3rd to see exact, and then what versions each carrier will get, if they change it like they did the S2. But I still like what HTC has done with the One, even at 4.7 it isnt bigger than a lot of 4.3 phones and the Poly just looks so much better than Samsung Plastic. Just my 2 cents though, your opinion for what you buy is what matters!

Aside from hardcore users, I don't think this phone will do that well. It's enormous! Most people, myself included, don't want phones that big. It's bigger than the Nexus and that phone is huge.

Good luck to all those buying and getting it..... Enjoy the power.....

Is the s4 dual core that much better than the previous s3 dual 1.5 processor? Can someone please respond with an intelligent answer. Thank you.

Yes, very. The S3 was at the bottom of performance levels of all dual core chips, this new S4 is the best dual core out right now, it goes head to head with the Tegra 3 quad core. I don't know the exact reasons as to why it is, probably something with the architecture of the chip, but any other reasons I can't tell you.

Looks like a sweet phone. The Galaxy S series suck. Samsung phones do not pickup signal as well as other phones like Blackberry, Apple, and HTC. I use to work with them a lot and it was a major complaint. No matter how expensive or cheap their phones are.

Ugh I wish my upgrade were before the end of the year. I always have had 8gb SD cards and never needed more space, so the 16GB storage and lack of SD slot wouldn't be a deal breaker for me. Well at least other manufacturers will have released their phones by my upgrade...

Because i think they are getting one of the other variants. i think its the HTC One S


Posts: 701; Member since: Jun 07, 2011

thats a lower end device though i wouldnt call it a varient??

It has the same specs as the AT&T One X, just a smaller and lower res screen, so it should be faster than the One X. And it fits better in the hand. Plus theres a rumor that Tmo will get the One X with quad core and stock ICS, so dont give up hope yet


Posts: 701; Member since: Jun 07, 2011

thats right it would be all the same except for the screen pretty much... I guess a worthy upgrade for me would be the one x with quad core on tmo.. or sgs3 of coarse

...which will sell a lot more as it's more comfortable for average hands.

HTC One S is a mid level device for the same series. It shouldn't considered as a variant of HTC One X.

Quick question: Will this phone come with the beats headphones? o_o

21. KEVlN

Posts: 83; Member since: Aug 19, 2011

Nope. Just HTC ear buds. They're tangle free though. It won't matter anyway. The beats technology in the phone works with any headphones you plug in. Besides beats headphones don't really sound that great... its more of a fashion trend.

HTC is gonna pull in some good numbers with this phone... i would prefer this phone if i had android. They fell off when Sammy switched gears with the SGSII and the Note.... but i see a nice lil comeback for HTC going forward. They make good products!

couldn't AT&T and HTC have agreed on giving us 32GB even without a microSD slot and a larger embedded battery??? is it that much more expensive for them to make a smartphone with 32GB of onboard storage, than a 16GB of onboard, plus a microSD slot??? It's these little specs that keeps me waiting for other Androids...

I think it's more of a design standpoint. If it had a bigger battery, they would have to make it thicker, which isn't very attractive to some people. I like my phones to have a good feel to them, but most just like thin. Though the Razr Maxx kept slim with it's 3,300 battery, and it's the same thickness as the One X, it's more pleasing to the eye and hand to keep it as thin as possible. That's why I'm going for the Sprint version, it has expandable memory, a 2,000mAh battery, with the same thickness oddly. I think that's AT&T's fault.

Isn't the American variant called the HTC One XL?

11. yt6nin

Posts: 100; Member since: Nov 16, 2011

that's what I've been wondering... But there's an article, a month and couple days back hinting at a Quad-core version of the One X for 4G or HSPA+, which is pretty nice, but who knows for sure. It's been a little over a month already with no additional news... I was hoping for more internal memory and at least a 2,000mAh battery like the EVO 4G LTE possibly hitting Sprint in June??? I would love for AT&T and HTC to make a successor of the One X with more internal memory and a larger battery, like Motorola and Verizon had done with the RAZR and then releasing the MAXX, which was just a larger battery. 16GB with no microSD slot, for me is quite disappointing, playing a market game similar to Apple now. Price and the available internal memory are the same with each other... -_-

Hmm, they can't use the Tegra 3 SoC though since it doesn't support 4G LTE yet. So the Americans might have to wait for a little longer, which is unfortunate really. As for the battery of the device, yes it is a disappointment. The quad core One X is a bigger disappointment really, but a fix seems to be in the making. And the storage has always been a problem. I wonder why HTC stuck with 16GB on this one while the One X has 32GB of storage. I just don't get these manufacturers sometimes.

So the e-mail I get from Best Buy few weeks back is accurate. I was really hoping it releases this Sunday. Oh well, let's keep waiting. :/
