Remember when two days ago we were sharing a news on the HTC One X10 upcoming debut? Earlier today HTC has officially taken the wraps off their new device. Surprisingly enough, rumored to be metallic the One X10’ body shell turned out to be made of real metal. Except for an attractive look the mid-range phablet provides its potential users with a package of decent specs and a ginormous battery.
HTC has just released the 5.5-inch One X10 phablet powered by a huge battery promised to work for the whole two days on a single charge.
Expected to have an official premiere in January 2017, the HTC One X10 is a successor to the last year’s X9. On the outside, the aluminum-made handset seems to be a reminiscent of the well-know “One M” series additionally equipped with a fingerprint scanner set on the back for better data security. Meanwhile, its front panel has undoubtedly been inspired by the HTC 10’s flagship design.
Specs-wise, the One X10 is a mid-tier handset with a 5.5-inch screen panel sporting 1080p of pixel resolution. Driven by the MediaTek Helio P10 processor, the phablet offers 3GB RAM and 32GB of built-in storage, which thanks to microSD card slot may be expanded up to 2TB. So you can be sure that there will always be plenty of room to store your apps and files.
Furthermore, such computing parameters along with the Boost+ feature helping to speed up the OS should deliver really smooth HTC Sense performance. If you are wondering which version of Android the system was based on, HTC neglected to mention any details about the device’s OS. The worst thing here is that that the company is still releasing MediaTek-powered devices that run the vintage Android Marshamallow (like for instance the HTC U Play).
In the optics department, the One X10 delivers a combination of a 16MP primary camera with f/2.0 lens and an 8MP f/2.2 selfie-oriented snapper on the front. Even though all the specs look decent rather than impressive, the handset hides one big surprise. Just as suggested in earlier leaks, the One X10 comes with a really massive battery. But none of us has ever though that it will be a 4,000 mAh unit. This extremely generous battery is promised to keep the phone running up to 2 days on a single charging.
Last but definitely not least, so far the One X10 is a Russia only offering. Sold at the equivalent of $355 the phone is available in black and silver color variants. As for Western premiere, frankly speaking the device has little chances to spread globally. On the other hand, $355 doesn’t look like a real bargain for a phone with such parameters, or perhaps the 4,000 mAh battery and a metal body justify the price?
