Planning to go for a trip to China? Now, you have another reason to push through. That’s because two of your most anticipated smartphones, the HTC One X and the HTC One V, will be hitting the Chinese market this April 2. Not only in China. The phones will also be made available in Taiwan.
If you’re concerned about not being able to get one, you should at least set a portion of your monthly salary or allowance. You see, the HTC One X will most likely be sold for 20, 900 Taiwan Dollars (that’s roughly around 706 US Dollars) while the HTC One V will be offered for a decent price of 10, 900 Taiwan Dollars which is more or less equivalent to 368 US Dollars. Obviously, the One V is way cheaper than the HTC One X. So if you think that the One X is a bit out of your budget, better opt for the One V. After all, both will be powered by Google’s latest Android 4.0 ICS platform.
As for those who cannot seem to afford to go to Taiwan or China, better wait for the phone to arrive at your locate mobile retail store. Fortunately, those who are in the UK don’t really need to wait for too long. Both handsets will be coming to Phones 4U this April 6th aside from the opportunity to get the phones via O2, Orange or Vodafone.
For the sake of recap, the HTC One X and the HTC One V were both unveiled at the 2012 Mobile World Congress. The HTC One X falls into the category of high-end handsets while the HTC One V belongs to the group of mid-ranged handsets. In terms of specs, the One X flaunts a vivid 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Capacitive Touchscreen Display with 540 x 960 pixels of full screen resolution while the HTC One V flaunts a clear 3.7 inch capacitive touchscreen display with 480 x 800 pixels of full screen resolution. Furthermore, the HTC One X can provide you with a quality 8 mega pixel rear facing camera with auto focus, LED flash that can allow you to record your 1080p HD quality videos while taking a bunch of still shots. The smartphone can also take pride of its 1.5GHz Dual Core Krait Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset, front facing VGA camera, Adreno 225 Graphics, Stereo FM Radio with RDS, HTML Browser with Adobe Flash, 1GB of RAM, up to 16GB of internal storage and Beats Audio. The 4G LTE variant of the said phone, aka the HTC One XL, will most likely be sold in the US thru AT&T Wireless.
Meanwhile, the HTC One V flaunts its 1GHz processor, 5 mega pixel rear facing camera with auto focus, geo-tagging and LED Flash, Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP, HTC Sense UI version 4.0, 512MB of RAM, up to 4GB of internal storage, up to 32GB of external storage via micro SD card, HTML Browser and Beats Audio. Unlike the HTC One X, the One V will not feature any front facing camera that you can use for video calls. Come to think of it, you can’t really get much from a Mid-ranged Android smartphone.
