If you happen to rock an HTC One X 4G for your mobile weapon, then you are one of the lucky ones that get to play with what is considered to be one of the most capable smartphones available in the market today. Looking back, the journey of the HTC One X 4G before it finally appeared on the shelves of the carrier was very colorful. In fact, the handset even has the distinction of being the first handset in the world to be powered by a quad-core processor under the hood. This was still back in the day when the handset still carried the HTC Edge codename.
The news about HTC already in the process of coming up with a quad-core powered smarpthone leaked as early as late last year thus thrusting the HTC Edge into the limelight. However, the handset went through a name change at one point in the past with the Edge codename getting changed to HTC Endeavor. This is not to end there though because the handset had to go through another name change before it was finally unveiled at Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona back in February as the HTC One X.
Since hitting the shelves, the HTC One X received numerous praises and glowing reviews thereby removing any iota of doubt with regard to its capabilities. Truly the quad-core revolution has descended upon us with the entry of the HTC One X to the smartphone market. Despite the power that the handset packs, the HTC One X still has a couple of issues that needs to be taken care of. AT&T in fact just started the rollout of a software update for the HTC One X 4G that should iron out a couple of wrinkles on the handset. In fact, a notification should already be waiting for you on your handset to let you know of the update’s availability. You might also want to check for the update manually by heading over to Settings > About phone > Software updates if you can’t wait for notification to show up.
The update will get the software version of the HTC One X 4Gto 1.85.502.3 in addition to bringing goodies and treats such as enhancements and bug fixes to the device. Once applied to the handset, the update will get rid of the intermittent Wi-Fi disconnections that users of the HTC One X 4G complained about in the past. It will also improve the Wi-Fi throughput of the handset by improving its speed and enhance its Wi-Fi connectivity option.
The HTC One X 4G packs one hell of a punch under the hood although this does not have the quad-core processor that its international sibling has in its internals. It instead packs dual-core capabilities thanks to its QualComm MSM8960 SnapDragon chipset while the snappy performance of the handset is courtesy of its dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait processor and 1GB of RAM. The HTC One X 4G comes with an internal memory rated at 16GB while its display measures 4.7 inches diagonally and is of the SuperIPS LCD2 variety with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. The handset also comes with a very capable camera department with a rear 8MP shooter at its back panel and a 1.3MP video chat camera out front.
