Full HTC One X Official Specs Leak Out – 4.7-Inch Super LCD Screen with Gorilla Glass, NFC with Google Wallet, 1800mAh Battery

HTC’s MWC event tomorrow afternoon won’t have many surprises after the folks at FullGSM managed to find the official spec pages for the One X floating around HTC’s site. It looks as if the device will come in both white and black (or charcoal) and will live up to all of the hype. It indeed does sport a 1.5GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor, 4.7″ Super LCD HD display with Gorilla Glass, has 32GB of storage, new dual-shutter camera tech, 28mm wide angle lens, an NFC chip with Google Wallet support,  and so much more. The only real downside that we are seeing is the 1800mAh battery. We would have liked to have seen something with a little more juice to power that massive display, but since the phone is not LTE, it could be fine.

Jump past the break to see it all.  

As expected, it won’t be anywhere near Verizon’s network. Will HTC and Big Red push a device with similar specs at some point though? We certainly hope so, especially knowing how HTC likes to handle bootloaders.

Cheers to everyone who sent this!

    so in  press event they said ”
    The One has 4.7-inch HD screen, Tegra 3, Snapdragon LTE” that mean vzw?

    • john0214

      nvm guess att gets it

  • http://twitter.com/nguyende De Nguyen

    We should see this on VZW by about 2017. I am getting ready.

  • Mchl496

    OK not LTE? and no kickstand and a small battery?

  • jdrch

    This phone looks like a FAIL to me: no LTE, no removable battery, no indication of what Android version it’s running … I’ll stick to my 32 GB GNex, thanks

    • fvqu

      Do any of you understand this device is NOT coming to verizon.

      • jdrch

        Yet another FAIL point, lol.

    • NewspeakSucks

      ‘This phone looks like a “failure” to me’. There, I fixed it for you. If you’re interested in learning proper English grammar and spelling, your local community college could help.

      It’s ok. You don’t have to thank me. 

      • jdrch

        Community College? The horror!

  • thedonxr

    No Gorilla Glass 2?!?!! WTF?! lol

  • Bionic

    Another HTC fail.  Too small a battery.  In my opinion the RAZR Maxx set a new precedent for what kind of battery should be in a 4G phone.  Anything less than 2500mah just isnt right to me.  

    • NewspeakIsAbsurd

      ‘Another HTC “failure”‘. There, I fixed it for you. If you’re interested in learning proper English grammar and spelling, your local community college could help.

      It’s ok. You don’t have to thank me. 

  • http://twitter.com/AshleyA_32 Ashley Arellano

     These are good specs now just DROID in front of its name and a 10mp camera and its sold

  • jack kramer

    oh hell NOO!!! Iam not getting a iphone!!!!

  • anguy

    The phone is too big, the battery is too small. Epic fail.

    • froyoman

      More exaggerated statements from an HTC hater. 

      The Maxx is 131 x 69 x 9 mm

      The OneX is 134.36 x 69.9 x 9.29 mm

      So you’re saying the OneX is “fatter” because of .29 mm and “wider” because of .9 mm? Technically true, but you’ll hardly notice the difference. Never mind that it had a much larger screen and is 15g lighter than the Maxx. Also, the battery in the OneX is larger than the original Razor and with a more power efficient processor. It’s even shorter and thinner than the vaunted Nexus. Try hating on something else instead of regurgitating the same drivel about HTC size and battery.

      • LionStone

        Amen.

    • http://twitter.com/nguyende De Nguyen

      More power efficient CPU.

      No power hogging LTE.

      I say 1800mAh is plenty.

  • SurgicalTech

    looks like ill be selling my galaxy nexus

    • fvqu

      It’s not confirmed that its even coming to verizon

      • Charlie

         It’s not coming to Verizon.  Period.

        • SurgicalTech

          Thats a good thing mine is on t-mo

      • SurgicalTech

        oh that sucks for people on verizon…

  • HolyGrail

    The ignorance is overwellming. There are other phones you can use if you want stock ICS. Why do you care if people have other choices? Lots of people like sense. Lots of people like stock ICS. So choose the one that goes with you’re choice. Stop acting you’re phone has to win…for others to lose. Choice is a good thing.

    • Tim242

      Stock = 1 choice.
      Skinned = all other devices.

      Is that really choice?

      • Jim McClain

        so is it true that you built a special pedestal to place your phone on, so you can kneel down and worship it all day and night ?

  • GNEX(MOTOX)

    curious if anyone can answer.. what happened to the gallery in  ics… on my nex it doesn’t have the 3d album effect… y’d they take it off?

    • Tim242

      Probably unnecessary lag.

  • GSAI

    That camera hits a Nexus owner right where it hurts…

    …but 1800mAh? Is HTC still up to its same old tricks?

    • Djkfhdz2

      1800mah and no LTE, I think the battery oughta be kinda alright. Better than any LTE devices on Verizon and AT&T at least, save for the maxx obviously
       

      • Tim242

        Nexus = 1850 stock, plus it’s changeable.

  • http://twitter.com/QSMinSD Q

    No ice cream sando?

  • you

    im just here to see what phone i will not be buying, cause i actually stick with my phone for 2 years, cause im not made of money.

    • Tim242

      You jealous bro?

  • DanielAgoot

    Aw.  No LTE=No Verizon…
    =’o(
    I would’ve traded me Nexus for this.

    • Tim242

      Why would you trade a Nexus for this? It’s wider, has a non-removable battery, and a locked boot loader.

      • fvqu

        Why you hating on this device bro? The specs are better then the galaxy nexus in pretty much every way besides the battery and lack of LTE radios. This looks like a winner to me. (I don’t get any 4G LTE where I live.)

        • Tim242

          Quad core is only better on paper. Dual core eats enough battery. The Nexus screen is better. It is stock, with an unlockable bootloader. That thing is bloated with Sense, and no way to extend battery life. It needs the extra cores just to handle all of the extra bloat they keep adding to Sense. No on screen buttons? Fail!

          • HolyGrail

            Some people like Sense…are you saying they shouldn’t get a choice?

          • Tim242

            Sure. But give the choice of removing it, or shipping it with an unlockable bootloader. Waiting a year and then only giving you limited unlocking won’t cut it. I used to be an avid HTC fan. They pushed me away.

          • HolyGrail

            Why would you have to remove it. You have a choice to just buy a phone that is stock.

          • Tim242

            Yes, one choice. You have 150 non stock choices, just one with stock. Is that choice? What if I want stock, with HTC hardware?

          • CORYK333

            Give it up dude

      • DanielAgoot

        The Nexus screen is impressive, and that’s it.  After ISC appears on other devices, the Nexus’ advantage will fade.  The camera is mediocre; speaker volume is average.  Why didn’t they put the camera from the SGS2?? Tegra 3 * Screams* on the Transformer Prime!
        =~o
        Loading too many apps on the Nexus and it’s obvious the extra load it puts on the TI processor.  Loading even more apps on the Prime and there is little-to-no noticeable load put on the processor.
        A removable battery would be nice in this.  The bootloader will probably get an unlocking tool later.

        • Tim242

          1. ICS on other devices will not come close, since they will be skinned. 2. The camera takes pretty good pics. They normally look great, in good lighting. No phone camera takes good pics in low light. Pics can be quick-fixed. I have to do that on a lot of pics taken with my Canon point and shoot. I am perfectly happy with the Nexus camera. 3.Nvidia chips are not compatible with LTE. That’s why the atrix has tegra 2, the bionic had to be changed to TI OMAP. My Nexus never slows down. But, I do not waste time playing games. So, not sure how that might affect it. 4. Non-removable 1800 math battery, and capacitive buttons kill it for me.

          • CORYK333

            I like my nexus & have all 3 of them(nexus1, nexusS, Gnex), so its def my prefered device, but damn dude, you dont have to try to convert some1 EVERY time they…GASP!!!…..praise/want another phone. Its ok, learn to leave it alone once in a while. We get it, you LOVE yours.

      • CORYK333

        Give it up dude

  • Youllreachus

    I love my Rezound, except for the battery life. I have serious doubts as to quad core enhancing the poor battery life I experience with the stock battery. How does samsungs note do so much better with a huge screen and a smaller battery than my extended boat battery on my rezound? Either super amoled is much more efficient or HTC is behind in technology. Another potential disappointment is the ffc on this new phone. The Rezoundhas a hi def 2mp ffc that takes phenomenal video. Sweet for YouTube and the such.

    • Liderc

      The Note is 3G, probably why. 

  • fvqu

    If it was for verizon I would definitley choose this over the Galaxy Nexus.

    • Tim242

      Why? It has a non-removable battery and a locked boot loader.

      • fvqu

        Where in this article is it written that the bootloader is locked? Do you not know that HTC has been unlocking bootloaders on some phones not so recently?

        • Tim242

          They only unlock older models. New models stay locked for at least a year.

          • eazycc

            So the HTC Rezound is a year old phone?

          • Tim242

            I did not see that one as being unlockable yet. Regardless, the unlocks are half-a$$ed. You do not get S-off.

      • CORYK333

        There you go again, never stops, eh???

        • Guest

          it’s pretty sad and pathetic!! isn’t it??

  • Pimp

    micro sd card slot?

  • George Davis

    That is one sweet looking phone.  The built-in 1800 mAh battery is a dealbreaker though.  Or it would be, if it was an LTE phone.

  • Cam

    Without the capacitive buttons, this was my next ‘maybe’. I’ve just gotten too used to having the buttons change with the app.

  • SMD79

    An HTC One X “Maxx” on Verizon would be my ideal phone. Oh well.

  • ADIDACOD

    LOOK @ THAT CAMERA APERTURE!!!  would like to see some improvements on the battery though and would love to see it on VZW w/4G LTE

  • sillyrabbittricks4kids

    yall know yall love the taste of sencecreme

    Yikes, gonna have to pass on this.  Too big.  Hopefully the Zeta physical dimensions will be true.  My dream phone is an HTC Desire sized superphone.

    I want to see LaCokaNostra debate Angelface about HTC vs Moto. Please make this happen!

    • EC8CH

      Lmfao

      • OreoMan

        Everyday I’m shufflin’!!!

    • guest

      Cripple fight!

    • LionStone

      I already put Angelface in his place when he spouted on about how much greater Motos radios are and I posted a shot of the signal strength on my TB…needless to say he isn’t talkin that smack anymore :-)

      • Stephen D

        Motorola’s radios typically are superior, that’s a simple fact. I don’t know about the TBolt since I’ve never owned one, but I put my OG Droid and Droid 3 next to my friend’s Incredible, and the Droid and D3 had a 10 dbm advantage.

        • LionStone

          Yes I agree that Moto’s radios are “typically” superior, I set my father up with the RAZR because of that specific reason. Although my TB was getting as good if not better signal than his RAZR and/or his wife’s Bionic. Anyway, there is about a 10 dBm difference between my TB and my Incredible in full 3G coverage. The lowest I’ve seen my TB get is -58 and Inc. got down to -68.

  • fartbubbler

    I don’t know why HTC hates battery life…

    • fvqu

      1800mAh is not bad at all, plus the 5th core is for improved battery life. I don’t think battery life will be an issue with this phone.

      • Tim242

        The Nexus battery is 1850. The “extended” is 2100. The battery does not last any longer than the Thunderbolt. Proof that more cores does not equal better battery life.

        • Casey Megginson

           When a Tegra 3 isn’t under load, it disables all 4 primary cores and uses only the 5th companion core that’s conservative with battery life. But hey, don’t let the truth or anything get in the way.

          • Tim242

            I’m glad you think you know how a quad core will perform, when they have not been released. That “companion” core is being called a gimmick. Regardless, 1800 mAh. Non-removable battery is a fail.

          • Liderc

            It’s not a 4G phone, so it probably doesn’t need a large battery.

          • Tim242

            My Nexus is on 3G only most of the time. The battery life is still not great. A multi core, HD screen phone needs a bigger battery, period.

          • Liderc

            My Nexus last 12+ hours a day on 4G, so I don’t necessarily agree. 

          • Tim242

            Mine lasts that long too…with LIGHT USE.

          • Liderc

            I’ve never understood this point you’re trying to make.  I can run my car out of gas in an hour if I floor it everywhere I go, but I don’t need to. 

            Nor do I need to blow through my battery by streaming netflix for 3 hours straight to kill the battery on my phone.

            I can use my phone for what I need to use it for and not burn through the battery.

            It has nothing to do with “light” useage which is subjective.  It’s to do with keeping the brightness low when I need the screen on constantly or turning 4g off when it’s not needed or disabling GPS when it’s not in use or not using background apps when they’re not important.  There’s many ways to stretch battery life and it has nothing to do with light usage. 

          • Tim242

            I keep my brightness at 25%. I know how to minimize battery drain. I don’t stream Netflix. If I use my phone for browsing and email constantly, it will be dead in 4.5 hrs. If I only use it lightly throughout the day, it lasts call day. If your battery lasts 12 hours, you are hardly touching it. If you say differently, you are lying.

          • Liderc

            So when someone has a different experience than you, they’re lying?  I see.

            Who needs to read their email and browse for 4 hours straight?  That’s my point, you’ve proved it thanks.

          • Tim242

            So, when you don’t need to do something that many others do, you say they have no need to? You sound like isheep that say a feature isn’t important until they get it. This phone has less than desirable battery life. Everybody else agrees. You are the minority.

  • ddevito

    Isn’t it EASIER to build a phone with on-screen buttons? Seriously why aren’t there any non-GNex full screen phones yet? R&D? Time?

  • http://www.facebook.com/TJHRULZ tjhrulz

    I remember someone saying in the comments jokingly to just watch that HTC would put something like a horrible 1800mAh battery in this phone, someone must be a psychic 

  • Octotron

    Oh good… another gigantic screen phone with a completely gimped battery.   Is this like the Thunderbolt v2.0?  The Razr MAXX is a huge success because of the thought into the battery.  Why can’t these other companies take the hint?

    • http://www.getintonursing.com/ Jon

      If Motorola makes the battery decision a trend, I think everyone will have to take note and respond by increasing battery life. 

      I’m hoping this is the beginning of extended batteries as a default feature in all smart phones. 

    • gf1Fanatic

       I still can’t understand the big deal about batteries. As long as they are easily replaceable, it’s no big deal. Piece of cake to replace the battery in my GNexus. I keep a spare in the little watch pocket of my jeans and it’s barely noticeable. The stock battery easily gets through most of the day and, if needed, a replacement takes no time at all. As a photographer, I wouldn’t think of leaving the house without a spare camera battery (or two) for my camera.

      The current battery insanity is thanks to the iPhone. We need to get over it.

      • ILuvSoPa

         Maybe because some of us don’t like filling our pockets with spare batteries?

        • gf1Fanatic

          We’re not talking about a brick. The GNex replacement battery is hardly noticeable. Sometimes I even forget it’s in my pocket. The peace of mind of not ever having to worry about draining the battery is well worth the very minor inconvenience.

          Again, if the iPhone had a replacement battery (which it should have had), it would never have been an issue.

      • JosephMoreno

        That’s a smart place to keep your battery, but arent you worried about damaging the battery? For some reason i dont even like holding my battery because it feels like it’s melting.

  • Gtosmw

    TO ALL YOU COMPLAINING ABOUT THE SMALL BATTERY!!!!
    do you know that if a quad core phone works like a quad core computer, which i think it will because its a 4+1, it will use actually LESS yes i said less battery power, so i wouldnt be surprised at all if we dont see phones with anything more than an 1800mah battery in it, and still last a full day with heavy use, and with regards to it coming to Verizon, i wouldnt doubt it would, they have the best network, best phones to date, why not snag the first quad core phone, they missed out onthe first 4g phone, they dont wanta do that again.

    • Tim242

      False. Dual core supposedly uses less battery than single core. My Nexus eats battery as fast as the Thunderbolt did.

      • Guest

        WRONG!!!  YOU FAIL!!!!  do some research!!!

        do I have to educate you on why Sense is good for android once again?

        • PuzzleShot

          Yes?

  • http://twitter.com/_elemenopee_ Kavin Nguyen

    Placing the charging port on the side of the phone is a horrible idea.

  • Alex

    Heres my take on this.  I think they gotta put a slightly larger battery in this.  4.7 inch screen needs at least 1900 mah battery.

    What i am surprised about is that this phone comes wiht 2 years of 25 gb of storage from dropbox!  Is this dropbox going to continue for just htc phones, verizon, or just all androids or even just be for this phone only?

    • Alex

      I forgot to add something.  i thought that verizon will only sell 4g phones?  

      • HeyYou

        Its not coming to Verizon sadly.

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          For Gods sake there’s no proof of that anywhere. No US version is expected to be announced in Barcalona

    • srh12

       Beats me, I only have 2gb on my htc phone. But that might just be due to the fact that Im a lowly thunderbolt leper.
      As far as I know its an htc only deal.

  • srh12

    Battery is too small.
    Really htc, you didnt learn anything at all from the market over the last several months I see.
    People knock the Gnex for short battery life and praise the razr maxx for great battery life…. so htc includes a battery smaller than the Gnex. Brilliant.

    • http://twitter.com/MrBouche MrBouche

      Oh my GOD.  Battery too Small?  PEOPLE NEVER COMPLAIN ABOUT ANDROID BATTERIES!  Someone even said about this phone that before you!  OMGTROLOLOLOLOL! X-D  CAN I LIKE THIS MORE THAN ONCE?

       I see you fishing for “likes” but I kinda think you missed the trend… jokes about the device being soon outdated and  followed with ___ +S, or ___ +HD, or ___ +maxx version were kind of old 2 months ago.
      At least get really creative and throw in a “sense=fail” gem, those are always a crowd pleaser! Why dont you try that, you should get some likes from the gnex fanboys.

  • Jason Purp

    This phone looked great. But then the screen was turned on. And I got some Sense knocked into me.

    • LaCokaNostra

      Sense is a huge improvement over stock.

      • Cam

        Keep doing that coke, man.

      • Tim242

        Not over stock ICS. Sense was good back in the day. Time for it to die now.

      • Zippitydoodah!

        Okay! Can I get an Amen to that?  The only thing I liked about the GNex was the screen. If the overlords at Big Red would smile down upon us and bring us an LTE variant of this, I would cream my jeans.

      • Deltaechoe

        I smell a troll

      • Stephen D

        Sense WAS a huge improvement over stock. Now it’s an ugly, bloated, battery-hogging piece of garbage that runs like crap. 

  • bjn714

    Camera sounds sweet but alas, no SD seems to be the trend now…

    • Booboolala2000

      SD card situation is probably due to ICS and Google trying to play nice with big media.

  • JordanMcRae

    The only problem may be that it has capacitive buttons without a menu button. This could be a problem because many applications have not built in a software “action overflow”. The Gnex gets around this becuase it was software buttons and can place the “action overflow” in the button row as needed. Capactive buttons do not provide that flexibly. 

    • bjn714

      Agreed.  I posted this with the first rendering popped up.  Considering this is just a rendering, it could actually be different at launch.  Or they could have some sort of floating on-screen popup for the legacy menu button when needed, but I am not sure how I like that idea.  They should have done it right and gone with the on-screen navigation bar.

    • hkklife

      Capacitive buttons without menu button=fail (at least in the short term for legacy aps)

      No microSDHC slot=fail

      No 64GB internal storage = fail (considering the lack of the above)

      Undersized typical HTC battery=fail (unless they pull off some awesome optimizations for battery life)

      Sad, really, as the formfactor and screen look awesome.  And I am sure the cameras will be superb like the Rezound.  

      • http://profiles.google.com/danstheman600 Daniel Sasson

        The micro sd slot doesnt really matter. I have a gnex and i dont miss it.

        • Blake Robinson

          yea well I do… google music doesn’t allow for good “quality audio” streaming and I miss my music on my phone. I have 25 GB’s of music and 3 GB’s of movies that I use quite frequently and the lack of space on the G-nex is horrendous. At least have the option for a 64 GB one like the iphone (man I hate saying that that).

      • Droidzilla

        I’d put the screen as a fail, too. I’m not interested in phones without sAMOLED. Sammy will probably drop a sAMOLED+HD on us; put that in a new Note with LTE for Verizon and I’ll drool on my keyboard. This HTC is nice and all for the quad core, but that’s only because it’s first to market. It’ll soon be eclipsed by the other quads and the big.LITTLE/A15 processors.

    • WickedToby741

      There has to be a substitute function of some sort. It could be something as simple as long pressing the application button. That’s how I’d engineer it.

  • N8shon

    I’d like to see something like this on Verizon soon as well.

    If this was coming to VRZ I’ll be all over it like a fat kid at the buffet!

    • Instant_lunch

      So this is not coming to Verizon?

      • Bewara2009

        Accordong to kellex its not coming to Verizon.

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          Pretty sure Kellex just made an assumption.

          • WAldenIV

            It’s a fair assumption based on the radios.

          • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

            Phones announced in Europe are never announced with the US carriers in mind… there’s always a different version with specific radios for carriers state side… along with a different press conference. This is especially true when it comes to HtC

          • Bewara2009

            I bet that this is either coming to Sprint or T-Mobile once it hits the States.

          • Deltaechoe

            This phone is GSM/hspa so definitely not for Verizon

          • WAldenIV

            Looks like Kellex and I were right.

          • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

            Wrong. The ATT Version will have LTE. Which is obviously not one of the radios listed above.

          • droidman101

            it is also exclusive to ATT.

          • WAldenIV

            AT&T != Verizon.

      • Booboolala2000

        I believe that Verizon has said all new smart phones will need to have lte. I could be wrong though.

  • 4n1m4L

    I’m curious to see how they will handle legacy applications that still use the menu button….

  • Michael_NM

    I can imagine big batteries are important with your frequent power outages and distance between places that actually have electricity… Edit: Oops that was supposed to be a reply to our beloved Rumba

  • Michael_NM

    It’s nice to see HTC is getting so creative with their designs… :P

    • LaCokaNostra

      It lilac bettter than any other phone on the market.

      • Michael_NM

        Lilacs, you say? Does it come with unicorns too?

        • TC Infantino

          Pink ones.  The invisible kind.

      • Tim242

        My Galaxy Nexus begs to differ. No buttons, no randing on the front.

  • RumbaCembe

    The wizards at the motorola palace can put 3300 battery in thin phone. HTC needs to get on their game

    • KleenDroid

      It would be nice if the wizards could unlock their phones.

      • Almost there HTC

        Black Magic!!!!!!!!!!

      • RumbaCembe

        Everyone knows about the dark shamans that jha had left in the bootloader department. 

      • ILuvSoPa

         Almost as bad as the dark screen from dead battery :)

      • Scea0512

        Who cares about unlocking ?? less than 1 % 

    • Balls

       i bet it launches with froyo
