HTC announces trio of Ones, the X,S and V
The new series is led by quad-core X flagship, the rear brought up by the V
Published: 27 February, 2012
After months of speculation and a number of name changes the HTC One X (formerly the Edge/Endeavour) and the HTC One S (formerly the Ville) have been launched alongside a third handset, the HTC One V. As expected the One X is the leader of the pack and takes its rightful place as HTC's flagship while the One S sits in the middle with good if not so impressive specs. Bringing up the rear is the One V with some fairly unspectacular hardware but a predictably reasonable price-tag.
As expected the One X is going to offer a quad-core 1.5GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, 4.3" display and 1GB of RAM. In addition to this there's a generous 32GB of internal storage and an 8mp camera on the rear that can capture 1080p HD video. NFC connectivity is included and it's powered by an 1800mAh battery.
Next up is the One S with its 4.3" display, 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm S4 and 1GB of RAM. There's 16GB of internal storage, an 8mp rear-facing camera like the One X and a 1650mAh battery. It doesn't have NFC like the flagship device but it is quite skinny at 7.8mm.
Finally there's the One V with it's not so spectacular 3.7" display, single-core 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. On the back it has a 5mp camera which can take 720p HD video and for storage there's a measly, compared to the other devices, 4GB. Also on the downside it doesn't have NFC and it isn't as skinny as the other two measuring 9.24mm thick.
There's good news for the One V though as it, like the others, will launch running Android 4.0 overlaid with HTC's Sense 4.0 UI. A release date hasn't been set yet but all three of the handsets are due to be released in April. One UK retailer is already offering two of the three for pre-order with a £497.98 ($806) price-tag attached to the One X and the One V costing £254.98 ($413).
