htc-desire-x.jpgAfter a troubling year for HTC, the Taiwanese mobile maker’s IFA 2012 offering has been a little muted, but one handset has caught our eye; the new HTC Desire X.

Piggybacking off the love many still feel for the original Desire handset, the Desire X (formally known as the Proto) packs in a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, which powers a 4-inch LCD WVGA touchscreen.

Android 4.0 is the OS of choice, while the HTC One X’s impressive camera tech (which includes HDR capture, continuous shooting and the ability to capture video and stills at the same time) all also return. You’re getting a 5MP sensor this time around on the rear though.

Elsewhere the Beats Audio partnership continues to be integrated, alongside 4GB of storage given a cloud-based boost by a free 25GB worth of Dropbox space.

“HTC Desire X is an extension of your social life,” said Jason Mackenzie, President, Global
Sales and Marketing for HTC Corporation.

“If you’re looking to enjoy and share high quality multimedia, wherever you are, this is the phone for you. It not only looks and sounds great, but also provides a super-fast, highly personal mobile experience at a great price.”

Launching in Europe and Asia in October, no pricing details have been revealed yet, but we’ll pass them on once we get them.
