HD Entertainment
Customers who enjoy watching TV shows or movies on their smartphone will be amazed by the 4.7-inch 720p HD screen on the HTC One X which provides sharp screen images that appear detailed and visible from every angle – even angled up to 80 degrees – or connect the device to any TV using HTC’s wireless HDMI Media Link HD adapter** to enjoy content on a larger screen. 

The laminated cover glass and touch layer eliminates light reflection for superior sharpness and clarity, and is protected with Corning® Gorilla® Glass.  HTC One X also features a beautifully crafted polycarbonate unibody design that showcases its clean lines and seamless construction.

Authentic Sound
HTC One X is the first device from AT&T with Beats Audio integration built into the hardware and software, offering rich, full sounds with professional-grade sound engineering to play the music how the artist intended.  Beats Audio By Dr. Dre provides a distortion-free sound at higher volume and rich bass at all levels for video, gaming and music.  HTC One X is custom tuned for the best audio performance when used with Beats By Dr. Dre accessories**.

With built-in software on the HTC One X, customers can connect it to a computer and HTC’s Sync Manager software automatically installs to your computer and once connected, makes it easy to transfer songs, artists and playlists from a music library.  The new HTC Music Hub is also customizable to include customers’ favorite streaming radio services and music apps, making them easily accessible all in one location.  

Additionally, an enhanced audio experience will soon be available to HTC Vivid™ customers in the coming weeks.  Sound engineers at Beats Dr. Dre and software engineers at HTC have teamed up to bring an improved audio experience to the HTC Vivid through an upcoming software update that will provide Android 4.0, an updated HTC Sense experience and Beats By Dr. Dre audio profiles. 

AT&T will begin carrying Beats By Dr. Dre accessories this spring.

Amazing Camera
With ImageSense, HTC One X’s 8MP HD camera rivals traditional digital cameras with improvements to every part of the camera including the lens, sensor and software, while integrating the new HTC ImageChip.  The combination reduces noise, removes color bias and enhances picture quality in photos and videos.  More than just megapixels, its best-in-class f-2.0 lens with a backside illuminated sensor takes amazing pictures in low light and its quick launch feature makes sure you never miss an important moment. 

It takes less than one second to launch the camera from the lock screen and the camera’s autofocus locks in on your subject in under a second, to take nearly unlimited continuous shots simply by holding the shutter button. To ensure the best shot is captured, HTC ImageSense also introduces autoburst which will automatically take a burst of shots if the subject moves while you press the shutter button.

For those torn between whether a moment would be better captured via video or in photos, HTC One X includes Video Pic so you never have to choose again – the device can capture pictures while recording video in HD and has the ability to capture a still image from previously recorded video.

A high dynamic range (HDR) feature presents more contrast in captured photos and enables the camera to capture multiple photos from one instance, each with a different exposure level, layering the images together to create a single photo that combines the best parts of each for a more accurate range of light across the image.

The 1080p HD video camera automatically removes jitters and lets you lock the focus on a moving object.  Slow motion video recording is also possible at a maximum of 108 frames per second. 

The HTC One X smartphone’s next-generation 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon™ S4 dual-core processor allows customers to run heavy duty tasks such as creating and editing homemade videos smoothly without any lag, while the 1,800 mAh embedded battery offers hours of uninterrupted entertainment time.

HTC Sense 4
HTC One X will be one of the first devices in the U.S. with the simple and intuitive HTC Sense 4 user experience.  It helps make the Beats Audio experience possible while listening to any audio component and features camera enhancements including a quick launch feature for the camera on the HTC One X – dramatically cutting down the time needed to move from the lock screen to snapping a picture. 

Quotes
“Of course HTC One X is an outstanding device with the hottest specs,” said David Christopher, chief marketing officer, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets.  “This device takes the power of those parts and creates a customer experience like no other, bringing superior hardware and sights and sounds to life.”

“HTC One X is a true showcase for HTC’s heritage of innovation providing our fastest camera, our best images even in the worst conditions and the ability to take video and photos at the same time,” said Jason Mackenzie, president, global sales and marketing, HTC Corporation. “I’m proud to bring these remarkable new experiences to AT&T customers with the HTC One X.”

The camera sounds impressive but time and actual use will tell...

this is bullshit. >:|

icebike says:

Waiting till I see actual battery run-times.

Other than that this looks like a great phone.

MthII says:

After leaving ATT I swore nothing would ever tempt me back. I'm praying that this phone ends up on Sprint...

Don't worry SPRINT and VERIZON will have their HTC DEVICES announced at CTIA MAY 6TH...

chappo2000 says:

Is that a typo? Did they mean Sprint?? Jk

moosc says:

Sorry no quad core for att. Already being downgraded sad.

Luger718 says:

might wanna go see snapdragon s4 benchmarks on anandtech

kinster02 says:

I guess we will have to wait for the new Evo line in order to have something similar to this on Sprint.

kkvtribe says:

LTE. Perfect, I was worried was going to be silly HSPA.
Wait..... Qualcomm? :-( was hoping Tegra 3.
Loving my Prime thought i could have matching cpu phone and Tegra gaming love... i guess I'll have to wait and see in person...

This sucks so bad. On Sprint with an Evo 4G on it's last legs.

So, now Sprint just gets phones that have been out for months. No new releases.

chappo2000 says:

For Sprint users I'm guessing this means these specs can only get better....

Racer-X#AC says:

" on it's LTE network in the US in the coming months. The One X and it's new technology"

You're killing me here. It should be "its", not "it's" in both of those cases. See http://www.angryflower.com/itsits.gif.

Floss82 says:

Be patient Sprint people,they will announce something soon maybe its because they're starting their LTE network this year so it takes a little time but I will believe they will announce one of these devices as a new Evo lol

chappo2000 says:

I would throw my Evo 4G against a wall... but, apparently it's gotta last me a few more months! lol

crxssi says:

It looks like the X quad core (Tegra 3) will ONLY be available in non-LTE versions. Blech. What is the point? Sprint, Verizon, and AT&T will all be LTE. That makes about as much sense as a non-swappable battery in a phone that doesn't have a huge battery.

I am pretty disappointed now. :(

Luger718 says:

tegra 3 and snapdragon s4 performance doesnt differ much...if anything the s4 performs better, see anadtech for benchmarks

There is a world outside the US you know that doesn't have LTE to worry about ;) 

Just saying...there's obviously a reason for using the Qualcomm chip, I don't think you guys are being short changed. Just because quad is more than dual doesn't necessarily make it better :)

Jonneh says:

Why have you posted this EXACT comment in the past five or six AC Headline posts? Quit spamming.

bjs188 says:

he's just gunning to be the one comment cited on the daily AC email. it is gonna be ok. Let him rant.

rexdeaz says:

You guys gotta remember, and they say this every year, CTIA is the "cdma" show, MWC is gsm. If Sprint is getting this, we'll only have to wait until the end of March to find out. And what good is a Sprint LTE phone if there is no Sprint LTE? I'm fine with waiting until it's rolled out.

Premium1 says:

The phone will still work fine. I mean look at the wimax phones with very little wimax coverage, by your logic why make those phones when not everyone has wimax....

denmcdon says:

I'm done with Verizon leaving them in July and they can stick there droids where the sun don't shine AT&T gets all the best phones.

Linebarrel86 says:

Uh...not sure why you would leave the best carrier with the largest 4G LTE coverage over getting a certain phone. And as far as AT&T getting better phones thats debatable. As of this moment, Verizon as a great lineup. And they were wise to get the GN exclusive for such a long time.

paleh0rse says:

Small battery? Non-removable? FAIL...

Latino293 says:

Now its a toss up between this phone and the Galaxy III coming soon to AT&T. Decisions, decions....what do you guys think?

cwmont13 says:

"Allows customers to stay entertained everywhere " LOL! Until AT&T starts throttling you. Seriously, AT&T is going to have a big push on all their new LTE phones that nobody will be able to fully use on their already overtaxed network.

nitestorm says:

Wow, AT&T are coming with nicer phones. I wonder if the Samsung Skyrocket HD will come with S4 dual-core also? This HTC X is a beast but too bad is not a removable battery. I don't see any news with Verizon's future phones.
