The One X10 is the latest in the “One X” family of phones and seems to combine a lot of old and new HTC elements. The phone looks somewhat similar to the old “one M” series phone, with the addition of a fingerprint scanner on the back.
Internally the HTC One X is broadly what you would expect for a mid-range phone. A 5.5inch 1080P screen, 3GB of RAM, a MediaTek Helio P10 processor. It has 32GB of storage, plus room for a microSD. It also comes with dual SIM support with both slots being capable of supporting 4G LTE. The Cameras are nothing astounding. There is a is 16-megapixel rear camera and the front facing camera is 8-megapixel with a wide angle lens to assist in taking selfies.
There are a couple of premium features that could help the HTC One X10 stand out in the crowd. It has a metal body and a fingerprint sensor on the back. That said, it looks like the real standout feature of the One X10 is going to be an absolutely massive battery.
The HTC One X10 will contain a 4,000mAH battery which the company claims will be able to power the phone for up to two-days. Given that the screen is relatively low resolution and that the battery is pretty massive, this claim seems reasonable. A long lasting battery could really help the HTC One X10 carve a space for itself in the crowded mid-range phone market.
So far the One X10 has only been announced on HTC’s Russian site and as of yet there is no word of a wider release. The phone will cost 19,990 rubles, or around $335.00.
We will have to wait for users to get their hands on the HTC One X10 before we know whether the claims about its long lasting batteries are true. If it turns out that HTC is not exaggerating then the combination of decent performance along-side good battery life may well sway consumers.
