It never fails, the closer we get to a big event, the more details seem to leak about up coming phones. We’ve seen devices accidental leaked out, like the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, but HTC’s device, the Endeavor may be the worst kept secret of MWC. Over the last several days we’ve seen pictures and even a name change for the Endeavor, which is now being called the HTC One X. We’ve known for sometime that HTC’s next flagship device will have an 720p HD display, Android 4.0, Sense 4.0 and even a rumored quad-core Tegra 3 processor.
But now we actually have some physical specs courtesy of Paul O’Brien of MoDaCo. These specs certainly equal one hell of a device and could make all those early adopters of the Galaxy Nexus a little jealous.
- 1.5 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor
- 1GB of RAM
- HTC Sense 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich
- 4.7-inch 720p SuperLCD with on-screen buttons
- Amber/green notification LED
- Contacts for a Beats speaker dock (already rumored to be announced at MWC)
- 32GB of storage, but no microSD card
- 1800 mAh battery
- HSDPA/HSUPA speeds of 21Mbps down, 5.76Mbps up
- Support for microSIM cards only
- 8MP BSI rear camera, 1.3MP front-facing camera.
There are only two things that I could pick at, one would be the small battery, when you have a device with a screen that big and bright, combined with a quad-core processor and a battery hogging UI, you’re going to need a bigger battery. I wish HTC would have learned from Motorola’s DROID RAZR mistake. The other small complaint would be a step up in camera pixels (granted, I know pixels aren’t everything), I don’t need a 12-megapixel shooter, but a 10-megapixel upgrade would have been nice. These gripes are just me being picky, in the end I think this is a monster device, made of nice material (assuming that’s real metal and not plastic), this could be the first HTC device since my EVO 4G that would make me want to venture back to an HTC phone.
