Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC today announced its newest mid-range Android smartphone, the One X10. The smartphone wasn’t announced at a media event though, it has simply been quietly added to the HTC Russia website.
As rumors had suggested, the HTC One X10 features a large 5.5-inch Super LCD display with 1080p resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass protection on top. The mid-range smartphone is powered by MediaTek’s octa-core Helio P10 chipset, which has been coupled with 3GB of RAM. There is 32GB of built-in storage on offer, expandable further up to 2TB thanks to a microSD card slot.
When it comes to the camera department, the HTC One X10 isn’t very different from your average Android mid-ranger. There is a 16MP primary snapper at the back and an 8MP selfie shooter on the front. What sets it apart from some of its rivals though, is the Pro mode in the camera app. The Pro mode basically lets users tweak various advanced settings as well as choose to capture photos in RAW format.
Perhaps the most important selling point of the One X10 is its 4000mAh capacity battery. HTC has been quite conservative with battery capacities on its smartphones, so we’re definitely glad that it finally decided to equip one of its smartphones with a “big” battery. Another USP of the handset is its premium build, which HTC claims is very durable. It also includes a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and HTC BoomSound audio.
In Russia, the HTC One X10 will be going on sale later this month for RUB 19,990 (SGD 496). No word yet on when the handset will be available in markets outside Russia.
