HTC One X successor specs leak

Pictured above is the HTC One X. It is HTC’s flagship Android handset. With the recent reports that HTC have not sold as many of the One range as they would have liked, they are fighting back in an attempt to claw users back from the iPhone or Samsung’s Galaxy S3. This fight back comes in the form of the One X's successor, codenamed HTC Endeavour C2.

On the hardware side of things, the Endeavour C2 details a 1.7GHz quad-core, improved battery life, a new colour for the handset and bundled UrBeats earphones. A five inch screen has been rumoured, but neither confirmed nor denied in this leak. Accessories for the One X will also be fully compatible with the C2.

When it comes to the software, HTC is adding ClearVoice to improve the call quality. The C2 will be the first handset to run HTC Watch 2, the most up-to-date version of their video-on-demand service.

It’s unclear what the price or the release date of the handset will be. But rumours of a price approximately £5 more per month than the existing One X sound about right, with the release date on (or before) 1st October. Both these details should be taken with a pinch of salt however as pricing and availability will all depend on the network(s) offering the handset.

Nothing wrong with the hardware. The software (crappy Sense) is killing HTC. Make a Nexus version of this phone and I'm sold.

I'm confused, the new colour of the device will be reflected with the UrBeats or the device will come with bundled UrBeats headphones? I got my One X from Vodafone on release day and it came with UrBeats but I'm not sure if that was universal or a promotional offer. Either way I'm over the moon with my phone, the only improvement that I can see as being beneficial is the inclusion of ClearVoice and even then my calls are crisp and clear enough.

No removable battery + No sd card slot = NO SALE! Simple arithmetic.

The battery life in the HOX is great, have not had any issues with it, and I get well over a day of normal usage. As for SD card, this is somewhat hype. I have never filled the storage on my phone ever. For music, I stream from my home using subsonic. For file storage, I have dropbox. My phone has ~7GB free, only thing consuming space are titanium backups and TWRP backups.

Not having a removable battery was a major sticking point considering how lousy battery life was with previous models. I have the HTC EVO LTE and I have to say the battery life is outstanding. It was a leap of faith on my part though considering how poor the battery life was with my 1st gen. EVO. Others were probably not willing to take that leap...

I never understood why a non removable battery is bad. I have never met a person who cares or would ever want to swap a battery out. If it's near dead, just charge it and move on. Right? Or am I missing something?

I have two batteries for my phone and occasionally swap it out.

I swap batteries in my GNex all the time. I will never buy a phone where the battery can't be removed from now on. I love never having to worry about a low charge or needing to make sure I have a charger with me everywhere I go. Battery is small and I just throw that in when needed and immediately have 100% charge.

The One X is a solid device. Where HTC went wrong was by not having a removable battery or miniSD slot.

thats not what hurt it. the gneuxs has no sd slot and it sold fine. the razr line has no removable battery and it's the highest selling phone on verizon. lack of a new design and sense is whats killing htc right now.

they need to move in another direction and soon. "rumor" has it they may pick up open webos and i hope they do.

Its a combination of software(sense), removable battery and sd slot that is causing HTC the problem.. If HTC make a Nexus(pure Android update from google) based of one X with removable battery it will be back.

I think rumor for Asus was to make Nexus 7 which has become true...
I assume Moto and HTC will be next for Nexus Phones. there is also rumor that multiple manufacturer will make Nexus

No, they used to be awesome, HTC HD2, etc. then they ruined the brand with tens of different HTC models.

Never going to happen. Locked bootloader ring any bells? We're talking about a Nexus device. Also known as the developer phone. Not going to get much attention from devs with a locked bootloader.

Actually they did hurt it, they lost out on my purchase (and many other people would be the same) because of these two factors. No SD slot on Galaxy Nexus prevented me from buying that as well. Ended up with the S3 as it had both. I'm not too fussy with UIs both have positives and negatives. I do think the One X is an ugly device though.

Why dont they just release a *GOOD* phone the first time around? Dont flood the market with crap that people won't be interested in; instead put out a device that will excel all areas and it should be a hit.

The One X reviewed higher than the S III on average...

Hardcore Til I Die said,

Mainly because of the build quality, which doesn't really matter imo.


Not quite.

The Snapdragon variant of the One X has similar computing power, battery life and photographic credibility, but it also has a much better user interface that sticks more closely to the guiding ethos of Android 4.0. The One X also has a more forward-looking physical design, while the GS III clings to the tried and true styles of old. Perhaps the biggest sacrifice you'd make by going for the One X over the GS III is the loss of the cheap storage offered by the microSD card. That's a painful thing to give up, but given how deeply we feel about the need for Android to move forward and not get stuck in a Gingerbread-flavored groundhog day, we might just take the hit.

Wasn't that the "S3" review that spoke as much about the one x as the S3?

Probably a guy trying to justify his purchase of the one x.

Exactly. Its really a form of self denial. The One X has issues, like wifi issues, and if HTC's UI was so much better, itd be trumping the S3. Instead, HTC is losing money and will die out eventually.

Also, Samsung phones are WAY more developer support, i dont even want to upgrade my SGS II X because with Cyanogen on it, nothing compares.

I thought that the HOX was supposed to already have clearvoice, just that AT&T hadn't activated it on their network yet? that was one of the selling points for me buying it, was that somewhere down the line it would have better audio quality on calls (not that it has issues now, one of the best sounding phones I've had ever)

It does support wideband speech codec which is disabled for some regions. You can turn it on via changing
ro.ril.enable.amr.wideband=0
