Back in August, HTC revealed its then-upcoming smartphone at IFA 2012, the Desire X, previously called the Proto. Officially, the Desire X was slated for release in September, but was apparently delayed. As of today, it’s available in the UK via Clove and Unlocked Mobiles.

Sleeker than the One X and more powerful than the One V, the Desire X is a mid-level smartphone that offers a compromise between price and features. We got our hands on this smartphone back in August, and aside from its low screen resolution, it’s a sleek phone with decent features. Check out our hands-on report.

Specifications are moderate across the board. The Desire X is equipped with a 1Ghz dual-core Snapdragon processor, a 5MP rear camera, 768MB of RAM, WiFi/Bluetooth/GPS, and a 1,650mAh battery. Unfortunately, the Desire X only has 4GB of internal storage space, but has a microSD expansion slot to help make up for it.

Per the initial announcement, the Desire X is slated for release in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia Pacific. Whether the phone will ever find its way stateside is debatable. Currently, the Desire X is only available in the UK.
