The HTC One X debuted earlier this year at the 2012 Cellular Telecommunication Industry Association (CTIA) Wireless Industry Expo in New Orleans, Louisiana. One of the annual attendees at that event used to showcase new wireless technologies and products is online video dedicated website Videomaker. Videomaker is touted as “Your guide to creating and publishing great video,” and the camera package on the HTC One X that delivers some “first ever in the world” capabilities definitely made an impression on the Videomaker attendees.
They named the HTC One X 4G for AT&T their Spotlight Award Winner as the Best Smartphone of CTIA 2012. On their website they state, “It’s an amazing time we live in where you can buy a mobile phone that’s as powerful as laptops were about five years ago. That’s exactly what we’re seeing with the HTC One X.” They went on to note that phones with fast processors and high resolution screens are being released all the time, but they wanted to ensure that the HTC One X was recognized as the first phone in the world that allows you to capture still photos while recording high definition video. Video is recorded in stereo sound, and at 1,080P HD resolution.
And the still photos you capture while recording HD video on the One X are 8.0 megapixel widescreen images of 3,264 x 1,840 pixels, roughly 50% to 80% higher resolution than those still images captured by the average 4G smartphone. Also, the 8.0 megapixel camcorder allows you to snatch snapshots from prerecorded video. That camera also delivers a back illuminated sensor (BSI), high dynamic range mode (HDR), autofocus, geo-tagging and several other customization options. Image capture is also possible nearly instantly, in only 0.7 seconds. Around front there is a 1.3 megapixel chat cam in the camera combo.
Those features join a speedy 1.5 GHz dual core Krait central processor and Adreno 225 GPU that handles all graphics duties, as well as a large high-resolution screen in the admirable feature package. The HTC One X delivers a large 4.7 inch screen with 720 x 1,280 pixel resolution is offered at 312 pixels per inch. More than 16 million separate colors are used to render visuals to that capacitive, multitouch Super LCD 2 screen that is protected by a layer of scratch resistant Gorilla Glass. 16 GB of storage come built-in, and 1.0 GB of RAM system memory is on board. The handset also delivers Near Field Communications (NFC) support out-of-the-box, as well as the full range Beats Audio sound system. Buy the HTC One X starting at $119.
