HTC has been living up to its “quietly brilliant” theme in this IFA 2012 press event. As you can see, many phones have been announced by different players but we just heard a little from our favorite Taiwanese manufacturer. And by little, I mean announcing a medium-range smartphone called the HTC Desire X.
This mediocre yet decent device has a little more than what “little” can offer, if you know what I mean. Desire X runs in a 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 SoC, though the CPU is somewhat similar to your iPhone 4S, you can always tell that this previously named “proto” unit is a budget-friendly phone.
Meanwhile, it’ll have a 4-inch screen, 5MP camera, Beats Audio and 4GB of internal storage space. And being an HTC consumer, potential buyers are entitled to have a 25GB free of Dropbox space just to compensate for the small storage space. HTC Desire X’s camera also features continuous shooting, HDR and ability to capture stills in a video recording.
HTC Desire X is somewhat a desirable handset that would snug between HTC Desire C and the dual-SIM enabled Desire V. It will be launched in Europe and Asia next month, and will come in the Philippines in late September to early October. Based on the price of Desire C and V, HTC Desire X would sit in Php 15,000 range.
