IFA 2012: HTC Desire X – ‘Proto’ Android 4.0 Smartphone Goes Official

The annual IFA event has kicked off in Berlin and the Gadget Helpline will be covering the major announcements at this year’s show from the top names in tech including Samsung and Sony. We’ll continue with the news we’ve been following over the past few days from the HTC camp. The secretive smartphone which surfaced in a leaked photo earlier this week as the ‘Proto’ and soon became identified as the HTC Desire X has now gone official – Here’s the details..

A step down from the punching power of the One range this model is a tidy middleweight contender packing current Android, Ice Cream Sandwich (update 4.0.4 to be exact). It runs on a 4” Super LCD touchscreen display with 480 x 600 WVGA pixel resolution. It’s powered by a 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm CPU and comes supported by 768MB of RAM with 4GB internal memory and potential for expansion with its MicroSD port.

As we mentioned yesterday this one is confirmed with Beats Audio capabilities and a generous 25GB of Dropbox storage for all your data, photos and videos captured on the respectable 5-megapixel camera.

The HTC Desire X will be available in the U.K from mid-September in black and white casing with Phones4U already announcing it will be the first to stock the white edition of the new smartphone. Customers who upgrade or newly subscribe to monthly deals over £26 will be entitled to pick up a set of Beats Headphones free of charge.
