HTC may have been quiet on the smartphone front for quite some time now, but we know well enough that they’re saving all the thunder to be unleashed in one impressive storm. And we’re right; they’ve just unveiled and released the new HTC One series of smartphones in South Asia (and, by extension, in Malaysia as well), which comprises of the flagship HTC One X and the smaller/more affordable HTC One V.
HTC is citing the HTC One to provide an “Amazing Camera, Authentic Sound Experience”, and they do so by introducing a very impressive camera capable of taking 4fps burst shots for 99 shots (on the One X), still pictures during video mode and improved low-light performances, as well as a more complete and robust Beats by Dr. Dre integration. HTC has also implemented a new, intuitive way to share your phone content: the Media Link HD Device, which allows you to project your smartphone’s screen and functionality on a HDTV.
The HTC One X features a 4.7-inch 720p HD screen, 1.5GHz 4-PLUS-1 quad-core processor and Android 4.0. It prices at RM2,099. The HTC One V, on the other hand, sports a 3.7-inch screen, 1GHz processor and Android 4.0. Prices at RM999.
