HTC One X hands-on

Sunday, February 26th, 2012

It’s finally here… the flagship smartphone we’ve all been waiting for… HTC’s One X. BGR first revealed details surrounding HTC’s high-end One X back in November, and the wait has been grueling but it’s finally behind us. This sleek smartphone is every bit as beastly as we all knew it would be, and then some. Starting with the 4.7-inch Super LCD2 display that features 720p HD resolution, this is easily one of the best screens we’ve ever seen on an HTC phone. The quad-core Tegra 3 appears to be an absolute monster, and we didn’t even come close to tripping it up during our hands-on time with the phone. Check out our photo gallery below, and hit the break for more.

The look of the One X is familiar from afar, but up close there are a number of unique details we really appreciate. For one thing, the handset’s unibody case is made from a single piece of polycarbonate so scratches won’t show at all. We also love the design of the handset; the One X is flat on top and on the bottom, but the curved look of the right and left edges on the phone create an optical illusion that makes the whole phone seem slightly concave like the Galaxy Nexus.

The other big story with the One X is the camera. Plainly put, there is nothing like it on any other smartphone in the world (aside from HTC’s other One-branded smartphones, of course). It features an 8-megapixel sensor that captures amazingly crisp photos, but the more impressive feat is that it can capture an 8-megapixel photo in RAW format, and get ready to capture another photo in just 0.7 seconds. It can also capture full-resolution 8-megapixel images while recording full HD 1080p video. Amazing.

Battery life remains the biggest question mark here, but NVIDIA has promised that its 4-PLUS-1 architecture — which uses four cores to power through most tasks and a single “companion core” for lighter duties such as music playback and standby — will make its chipset far more battery-friendly than rival processors.

We can’t wait to get our hands on a One X for a full review but in the meantime, be sure to check out our hands-on photos in the gallery linked above.

AT&T to launch HTC Titan on November 20th for $199.99

Wednesday, November 9th, 2011

AT&T announced on Wednesday that it will launch the HTC Titan Windows Phone on November 20th for $199.99 on contract. The carrier touted the Titan as “the largest screen in our smartphone portfolio” alongside launch details in a post on its Facebook page. HTC’s Titan features Microsoft’s latest Windows Phone operating system, Mango, along with a massive 4.7-inch display, a 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor and a gorgeous unibody aluminum design. BGR reviewed the Titan last month, and we called it a class-leading handset in terms of hardware, though it was a bit too large for our taste. We very much enjoyed the snappy combination of Windows Phone 7.5 and Qualcomm’s 1.5GHz Snapdragon chipset, however, and the new 8-megapixel camera surprised us with images that can compete with the best camera phones on the market.

Deutsche Bank: Unibody aluminum iPhone 5 and low-cost iPhone 4S due in coming weeks

Monday, September 26th, 2011

Apple will unveil two new iPhone models next month, an all new iPhone 5 and a revamped iPhone 4 that will address the entry-level smartphone market. Deutsche Bank Securities analyst Chris Whitmore on Monday rehashed a research note he distributed this past June, which suggested Apple would unveil an iPhone 5 and an “iPhone 4S” in September. The iPhone 5 would be Apple’s brand new flagship smartphone, and the 4S would be a low-cost version of the current iPhone 4 model priced around $349 unlocked. The analyst’s new note mirrors those sentiments, though Whitmore now offers a few additional details. Read on for more.

Whitmore now sees the iPhone 5 as featuring a completely revamped design highlighted by a unibody aluminum case. The analyst’s description of an aluminum case could align with renders BGR published exclusively earlier this month. Regarding the iPhone 4S, Whitmore says it will be a tweaked version of Apple’s iPhone 4 that will cost between $300 and $350 without a contract. The new low pricing could allow Apple to address the prepaid market with its new low-cost handset, or it could allow carriers to offer the device for free with a postpaid contract.

The analyst’s note also mentions that the iPhone 5 will feature a better camera and a slightly bigger display, as has been rumored numerous times to date. The combination of a high-end redesigned iPhone 5 and an entry-level iPhone 4S is expected to expand Apple’s addressable market dramatically, and Whitmore notes that a low-cost 4S could make Apple’s smartphone an option for more than 1 billion prepaid customers.

Apple is expected to unveil one or more new iPhone models at a press conference on October 4th.
