HTC Desire X makes first public appearance

August 28th, 2012

htc desire xHTC have been going through some dark times of late, with the Taiwanese phone giant reporting abysmal earnings for the last financial quarter. It’s probably about time that they revealed a new handset to turn the heads of the masses, and that’s what’s just happened courtesy of Chinese retailer ePrice.

The HTC Desire X – previously known as the HTC Proto – is looking set to be their next offering. The phone features a 4″ WVGA display, dual-core 1GHz processor, 5MP camera, and 4GB of onboard storage that can be expanded by a further 32GB via microSD.

The Desire X comes preloaded with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich and also features Beats Audio, which is welcome given the recent rumours that HTC would be dropping support for the sound enhancement technology.

From what we know so far, the Desire X doesn’t seem to offer much anything we haven’t seen before from HTC. Spec-wise it seems to be a slightly weaker version of the One X, but with unexpectedly poor sales of the One series, maybe HTC decided that returning to the popular Desire range might help rekindle their former glory.
