HTC’s latest announcement is dubbed the Desire X. While it’s no One X, the device does pack a dual-core Snapdragon S4. Unfortunately, it’s not nearly as zippy as the S4 we all know and love from other, more high-end phones.
The phone features a 4″ SLCD display with a resolution of 800×480 which, while certainly not bad, isn’t setting any bars for picture clarity.
The device is billed as “affordable” though, as usual, we don’t have any information yet on what affordable means. The Desire X also includes a 5-megapixel rear shooter that HTC bills as “state of the art”.
This phone is going to include 4GB of onboard storage which certainly isn’t much, though it’s in keeping with budget smartphone territory. Thankfully a microSD card slot is also included, should you feel the need to expand. Also, HTC is offering a 25GB Dropbox deal to help offload some of the burden of local storage.
At a cursory glance, the Desire X seems to be a pretty good budget smartphone that doesn’t skimp too much on quality just to save a buck.
