HTC One X Now Available For Purchase At AT&T, Price Is $200

HTC One X is the flagship smartphone developed by the Taiwanese company and, as you probably know, is already available for purchase on certain markets since April. Fortunately, the Americans can now get their hands on the quad-core dual-core handset for a mere $200 on a two year contract with the US-based carrier or with a price tag of $149.99 via Amazon.

HTC One X was first introduced in February at Mobile World Congress 2012 event in Barcelona, and a couple of moths later it was made available on certain global markets, including UK, Canada or Australia. The terminal presented at the Spanish tech event was packing a quad-core 1.5 GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset, but, fortunately, the US version of the device comes with Qualcomm’s dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU, clocked at 1.5 GHz.

The benchmark tests have proven that even though the US version of HTC’s flagship device sports a dual-core chipset it can easily overscore the performance of the Tegra 3 quad-core variant. Since the United States has one of the world’s largest 4G networks HTC One X will come with support for LTE connectivity. It was initially reported that the Android-powered terminal will be called HTC One XL  in US, but it seems that neither AT&T nor Sprint chose this name for the device, the latter one re-branding it as HTC Evo 4G.

Returning to the AT&T HTC One X it will come with a 4.7-inch Super IPS LCD2 protected by a Gorilla Glass coating, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal flash storage and 8 megapixel camera with  autofocus, LED flash and full HD 1080p video recording capabilities. The primary camera is helped by the ImageSense processor that ensures high-quality stills capture.

In terms of connectivity One X features HSDPA (up to 21 Mbps), Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct and Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0, microUSB 2.0 and, of course, 4G LTE chip.

HTC One X leaves the factory gates pre-loaded with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich packed with HTC Sense 4.0 UI. As the smartphone will be retailed via AT&T it should also feature carrier’s specific applications like AT&T Navigator, AT&T FamilyMap, AT&T U-verse Live TV, AT&T Code Scanner and myAT&T.

Summing up, HTC One X is waiting for you to pick it up from AT&T and for $199.99 and after signing a two-year contract it can be yours. If you don’t want make a commitment to AT&T you can get it for $549.99.
