AT&T will begin taking pre-orders Sunday for the new HTC One X -- the wireless carrier's first smartphone to run Google's Android 4.0 mobile operating system, also known as Ice Cream Sandwich. Priced just under $200, HTC's multimedia 4G LTE smartphone will be available to customers beginning May 6.
Equipped with an 8-megapixel image sensor, together with significant camera lens and high-definition multimedia software improvements, the HTC One X is designed to deliver the best possible images -- "even in the worst conditions," said HTC President Jason Mackenzie. The new handset also will give users "the ability to take video and photos at the same time," Mackenzie said.
Available exclusively in the United States from AT&T, the HTC One X has a 4.7-inch high-definition (720p) display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass. The images that appear on the screen also can be viewed at angles of up to 80 degrees and still appear sharp and detailed.
HTC's new smartphone also integrates the latest Beats by Dr. Dre audio technology, which promises to deliver distortion-free sound at higher volume levels.
"Beats Audio on the HTC One X is also enabled across the entire multimedia audio experience," an AT&T spokesperson said in an online video presentation.
HTC Sense 4 User Experience
The HTC One X integrates a dual-core, 1.5-GHz Snapdragon S4 processor from Qualcomm. It also has a new HTC ImageChip for reducing noise, removing color bias and enhancing the quality of the photos and videos captured by the handset's f2.0 lens with backside illuminated sensor.
The mobile device's advanced imaging and Beats Audio capabilities are integrated under the handset maker's latest HTC Sense 4 user experience. Among other things, the Beats Audio enhancements include a richer bass for enhancing the sound experience of device users -- whether watching movies, playing games or streaming music.
The HTC Sense 4 user experience also includes a suite of camera and imaging features that can improve every part of the device's camera hardware. For example, the 1080p HD video camera aboard the device automatically removes jitters and enables the user to lock the focus on any moving object as well as record slow-motion video at a maximum of 108 frames per second.

Does anyone know if this is the exact same as the new HTC EVO 4G LTE from Sprint?
