Taiwanese smartphone and tablet producer HTC announced some big news at the 2012 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The HTC One line will be released later this year and a few U.S. carriers have already been named as the lucky recipients of these cool new gadgets. Leading the highly anticipated line of smartphones is the HTC One X. AT&T has already confirmed that it will offer the HTC One X, but it will be the dual-core version instead of the powerful quad-core packing. It is rumored that Sprint will also be carrying the HTC One X.
The HTC One S is making its way to T-Mobile, and it is expected to be the best T-mobile htc model. And an HTC representative said that the HTC One V, a reportedly smaller and cheaper phone, will be offered by low-cost prepaid carriers such as Metro PCS, Virgin Mobile and U.S. Cellular. This would be their first Android 4.0 phone.
The HTC One V has a comparatively small screen and size, which may be the reason for its lower price, but it is by no means a low-quality product. The 3.7-inch LCD screen uses an 800 by 480 resolution and will feature HTC’s new software. The device is handy for taking quality photos with a rear camera of 5-megapixels using HTC’s new F/2.0 lens. And it’s unibody aluminum design keeps it uniform with the rest of the series. Although, the HTC One V has something the other Ones are lacking: a MicroSD card slot.
The real star of the show is still the HTC One X. Although the quad-core version isn’t coming to the U.S., this monster of a phone will still be sure to please. As HTC designs always go, this one takes after previous models in terms of aesthetics. This 130-gram tool of black slab is encased within a 134.4 by 69.9 by 8.9 mm chassis.
The best part is this whopping 4.7-inch Super IPS LCD2 device is bestowed with the much-hyped Android 4.0 Ice Cream sandwich operating system.
