HTC One series announced – UK Release Date
HTC used the first day of Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) to eagerly announce a new family of three phones named the HTC One series.
The flagship of the One series is the HTC One X, formerly known as the HTC Endeavour (which was itself formerly known as the HTC Edge). The One series represents HTC’s fight-back in the smartphone war, currently being won by Samsung and Apple. The other two phones in the series will be the HTC One S and the HTC One V.
HTC claims that the camera in the HTC One X is among the best on the market and the company has also deviated from their usual metal casing favour of a polycarbonate casing. This has the effect of lowering the weight of the device, which weighs just 129 grams and is only 9.29mm thick.
The HTC One series phones will all come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, Dr. Dre’s Beats Audio and 25Gb of free online storage via Dropbox. The specification for each phone has been summarised for you as follows:
HTC One X
4.7 inch Super LCD2 display
