HTC One X For AT&T Only 16gb Internal Memory?

Anthanasios Zarkadas over at HTCpedia.com discovered something else about the HTC One X that is headed to AT&T that may turn people away.

We were clearly told that the One X at AT&T would have a Qualcomm S4 processor and not the Nvidia Tegra 3.  As Zarkadas points out, that of course also means that the TegraZone games that are currently available and the new ones coming out just for the Tegra 3 chip won’t be available for the HTC One X in the states.

A quick check of the AT&T preorder page though, only shows a 16gb version. As we know from Mobile World Congress there’s no expandable memory in the device either.  It was originally stated that we would have the option between a 16gb and a 32gb version.

While 16gb is a lot of on-board storage, when it’s maxed out at 16gb that may put a damper on things for some AT&T Android users. While there’s no official phone called the HTC One X Zarkadas refers to the international version as the HTC OneXL because, he’s right, it’s definitely not the same phone we’re getting here.

We’re also waiting to see if we have the same problem with processors with the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S III. We’ve heard a lot about the Exynos quad core processor that’s going into that beast of a phone. What we haven’t heard is whether or not it plays nice with 4G/LTE.

All four US carriers either have or have announced plans to use 4G/LTE as the official 4G in the United States. The reason (the only reason) we’ve got the Qualcomm processor for the HTC One X is because they are releasing it as a 4G/LTE device for AT&T.

We think they should release both. We’d then see which 4 people want, 4G/LTE or that quad-core processor.

  1. it could be something totally diff, as to why we wont receive the quad core Exynos..Im as bummed out as many. I was really looking forward to owning the new SG3 with the quad, and not the qualcomm this time around.

  2. Well 16GB is a let down. however, HTC Sense 4 comes with a free 25GB storage in drobox for the next 2 years. And that kind of makes up for it. you also do not risk loosing all your pics if something were to happen to the phone. Notice i do not say music since you don t want to jack up your data usage by streaming music, but for pics/docs i guess it is ok to just store them on dropbox.

  3. Yes, I thought the HTC One X would be my next upgrade. Until I discovered that the 16GB would make it a de-facto downgrade I would commit to for two years.
    Simple question in 2014, will 16GB enough? If not, don’t buy it in 2012.
    The way HD apps are evolving, memory space will become eaten up fast, leaving little room for song or pics/videos the One X is supposed to be great for.

  4. my understanding on this take is. The new Exynos will not be available for U.S customers again…We are getting the shaft on the quad once again..the reason im not sure of at this point. Samsung will def have LTE radios built into their new chip. Whether or not it will support the U.S LTE is another story. Or it could be something totally diff, as to why we wont receive the quad core Exynos..Im as bummed out as many. I was really looking forward to owning the new SG3 with the quad, and not the qualcomm this time around.
