HTC introduces mid-range Desire X at IFA

HTC unveiled its latest midrange Android phone at the IFA event in Berlin with the introduction of the HTC Desire X. The new phone is an upgrade to the HTC Desire which was first released about two years ago. The device may not have the specs that would topple high-end phones, rather, it is intended for consumers who are looking for a reliable middle range Android phone.

What You Need To Know:

  • The HTC Desire X runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with the HTC Sense UI 4.
  • It has a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 768MB RAM and 4GB internal storage. It also has a 4-inch display and 5MP camera.
  • HTC takes pride of the phone’s 5MP camera. It has the HTC ImageChip, f2.0 aperture and a backside-illuminated sensor. It could capture crisp pictures in low-light conditions. It also has a VideoPic feature which allows capturing video and still photos at the same time.
  • The device is expected to debut in mid-September. Pricing details is not yet announced.

With the right price-tag slapped on it, the Desire X has the potential to be a really tasty midrange ‘droid. It won’t compete with top-of-the-range Android powerhouses, but it should have enough oomph for most people’s mobile needs. The only concern I have at this point is that build quality may be its Achilles’ heel.
