proved to lack the innovation shown from its prior years, but we can't say the same for MWC. This is your guide to every eyes-on, hands-on, review that went down in Barcelona!
Tagged: HTC One X
stole the show yesterday at Mobile World Congress, as HTC showed off their new 'hero devices' for 2012. All three looked extremely nice, and going back to the aluminum unibody as we saw in the HTC Legend a while back was a nice touch. As you know, HTC will launch two version of the One X, an international version, and one specially designed to take advantage of AT&T's 4G LTE network. It seems Best Buy has already jumped to pre-orders for the device, and it's sure to get some attention.
NVIDIA quad-core Tegra 3; this was entirely due to 4G LTE incompatibility. Instead, it will come equipped with Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 4 dual-core processor. And we know from a test TI composed a few days ago, four cores are not always better than two. Their OMAP 5 was tearing through anything they threw at it, so it will be nice to test some benchmarks of our own during a future review.
a big deal if you're HTC, or an HTC fan. And just in case you haven't had enough of them and their Mobile World Congress debut so far, HTC has posted quick commercials for the One X, One S and One V to YouTube. It's some pretty sedate stuff - if you're drooling already, the videos will call for a little more salivation, but if you're not convinced they won't change your mind. There's a definite focus on each phone's camera, but the videos help isolate exactly where HTC thinks its three new pillars fit into the mobile landscape.
FullGSM got their hands on what appears to be the full product sheep. Aside from what appear to be press shots, there's nothing really new - except for a "dual shutter" camera, the purpose of which is to take full 8MP stills while recording video at the same time.
Samsung Galaxy B will have a bezel-free AMOLED display. It would be amazing if this trended into future devices across their line.
Ice Cream Sandwich quad-core smartphone. Previously known as the HTC Edge, the HTC One X will be fully detailed and announced at Mobile World Congress in a few short days. Check out how thin and beautiful it looks below.
updated to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) over in Taiwan, so we had figured it would make its way over to the US soon. We're sure of that now, as ASUS recently confirmed it should hit the states tomorrow.
