HTC One XC spotted on display in China, features Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chipset

HTC One XC was officially unveiled in China on September 19th during the Chinese Telecommunications Fair but the full specs haven’t been provided. While the announcement was official, it was more like just elling the people and tech enthusiasts that a device would soon be released and left them hanging clueless of necessary information about the handset. Today, a China-based blog posted purported photos of the handset on display for public to see and explore.

From the outside, the device looks more elegant with its black and gold two-tone color but as far as size is concerned, it’s no different from HTC One X. In fact, it leaves an impression that it is simply a One X on the inside but built for the Chinese market, hence, the name One XC.

There have been conflicting reports about it. Some say it would sport a dual-core Qualcomm chipset but the launching confirmed reports that it will get a quad-core Snapdragon S4. While it hasn’t been revealed, there is a greater possibility it uses Snapdragon S4 APQ8064 MDP/T chipset.

According to the official yet lacking specs provided by HTC, it has a quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz. Tech enthusiasts were fast in comparing it with Xiaomi MI-Two and pointed out many similarities in the specs and features.

HTC One XC has 4.7 inches screen featuring 720 x 1280 pixels resolution offering around 312ppi pixel density. It also comes packed with HTC’s own Sense user interface. HTC also confirmed the device gets 1GB RAM and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.

The pricing and availability of this handset weren’t revealed by the company yet. But considering Xiaomi MI-Two, believed to be its fiercest competitor in the Chinese market, will be offered at around $310, it is interesting to know how HTC plans on competing with it. The company hasn’t said anything about selling One XC outside China but it seems like there’s no plan on that for now, at least.
