HTC Proto Is Actually Desire X: Pictures with Specs Surface

Barely a week ago, we got a glimpse of a new HTC smartphone dubbed ‘HTC Proto’ and was touted as a new mid-range android device that is supposed to fill the gap left by the HTC One series handsets.  Today, we got a clearer picture of this new smartphone from official documents and it turns out it is actually dubbed HTC Desire X.

Desire X will come with a dual core (probably a tegra 3) 1 GHz dual core processor, 768MB RAM and 4GB inbuilt memory.  It may also be a major win for music fans to know that this phone still has beats audio despite earlier rumors that new HTC devices may not come with it.

This phone’s design bears some close resemblance to its predecessor the One X – especially with the polycarbonate fixed back cover.  The phone will be available in two colors – white and blue – for now but we cannot be sure HTC will add more colors after launch.  The leaked document shows that the Desire X phone passes itself as a mid-range One S but with some specs of the lower end One V.

We have no idea when HTC may be launching the Desire X but it is most likely to be during the IFA – along with plans for new HTC Android tablets that HTC plans to introduce by the end of this year.  This 4 inch smartphone may have low end specs but it sure wins when it comes to added features such as WVGA video recording, a 5MP camera with BSI sensor and Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich with Sense 4.1.
