The HTC One X smartphone

HTC UK’s Phil Robertson takes us through the features on the the new One Series X smartphone that will debut in April.

Powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 3 mobile processor and an LTE-enabled Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, the quad-core device has a large, 4.7-inch, 720p HD screen and contoured Corning Gorilla Glass.

The sleek, 7.9mm device has a polycarbonate body that uses the same materials as ice hockey helmets. It is coated in microarc oxidation originally developed for use in satellites.

Its sister devices, the One S and One V, will have 4.3-inch screens.

In addition, the new smartphones will come with a range of cloud-based music services for users to choose to buy music from, including 7Digital, and a deal between HTC and Dropbox provides users with 25GB of free Dropbox space for two years.
