After leaked photos and other details in recent months, the HTC One X10 has now made its official debut. The device was announced in Russia, but it's not yet clear when it will be made available in other markets.
The One X10 has a stylish metallic body, and a 5.5-inch Full HD display, but the handset's headline feature is its generous battery capacity. With 4000mAh of juice, HTC claims that you can expect up to 25.5 hours of talktime and 31 days of standby time - but as with all manufacturers, these battery performance figures are based on an idealized version of handset usage that rarely reflects real-world activities.
Key specs of the HTC One X10 include:
- 5.5-inch Super LCD with Full HD (1920x1080px) resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass
- Octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 processor
- 3GB RAM
- 32GB storage (plus microSD card support up to 2TB)
- 16MP rear camera with autofocus, backside-illuminated sensor, LED flash, and 1080p video recording at 30fps
- 8MP front-facing camera with fixed focus and backside-illuminated sensor, and 1080p video
- 4G LTE connectivity
- Dual-SIM support
- 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi with Miracast support
- Bluetooth 4.2
- HTC BoomSound support
- Dual microphones
- Light sensor, proximity sensor, magnetic sensor, gyroscope, and accelerometer
- Fingerprint scanner
- 3.5mm headphone jack
- 152.9 x 47 x 8.2mm; 175g
Unfortunately, it's not yet clear which Android version is installed on the device; HTC's spec sheet only states that the X10 has "Android with HTC Sense interface". Given that the brand new U Play, which HTC announced in January, is now shipping with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, there's a good chance that the One X10 will come with that older version of the OS, rather than one of the latest Android 7.x Nougat releases.
The device will be offered in either black or silver, and will go on sale in Russia this month, priced at 19,990 RUB (around $355 USD).
