AT&T Poised To Launch HTC One X Multimedia Smartphone

The HTC Sense 4 user experience also includes a suite of camera and imaging features that can improve every part of the HTC One X's camera hardware. For example, the 1080p HD video camera aboard the HTC One X automatically removes jitters and enables the user to lock the focus on any moving object as well as record slow-motion video.

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.

"In less than one second, you can launch the camera from the lock screen, focus on your subject and take continuous shots with zero shutter lag," AT&T's spokesperson said. "Using Videopic, you can capture images while recording video in 1080p HD and [it also] has the ability to capture a still image from previously recorded video."

Smartphone Boosters

Other HTC camera enhancements include the ability to capture multiple photos from one instance -- each with a different exposure level. This high dynamic range (HDR) capability enables the resulting multiple images to be layered together to create a more accurate range of light across the final composite image.

The HTC One X smartphone ships with a 1,800-mAh embedded battery that boosts the hours of operation from a single charge by 50 percent to 100 percent in comparison with prior HTC smartphone releases.

A wireless HDMI Media Link HD adapter is available separately.

"You can connect the device to most HD TVs using the HDMI Media Link HD adapter to enjoy content on a larger screen," an AT&T spokesperson said.
