    HTC has been keeping a low profile lately (which makes us worry just a bit), but they did just issue a press releasing officially unveiling their new Desire X mid-range device. Here's the scoop on the specs:
    • 4.0-inch LCD screen with WVGA, (480 x 800-pixel resolution)
    • Qualcomm dual-core Snapdragon S4 Play chip clocked at 1GHz - (It's important to note that this is not one of the 28nm chips seen in high-end devices. This is a modest Cortex A5 chip using 45nm technology. It is called the S4 Play, and does not perform as well as its bigger brother the 28nm S4.)
    • 5-megapixel camera with backside illuminated sensor
    • HTC’s ImageChip with fast activation, burst shots (but much slower, at 2 frames per second) and VideoPic that lets you to take still shots while recording video. (Video recording stops at 480p, instead of 720p.
    • Beats Audio
    The phone is expected to hit markets like Europe, Africa and Asia in September, but we have no word on a US launch. Here's the press release below,

    Overall, it seems rather bland, but then again, it's not easy to get too excited about mid-range devices.

    WVGA, on a 4" display in 2012... Should be at least qHD.

    And the point of this phone is, I guess they did not want to throw away all those S4 chips at .45 nm they bought, LOL,

    I do not see the point of producing mid ranged devices when they could just sell older devices as mid ranged devices. IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE!

    Wasn't there a S4 shortage?

    Why does HTC keep making all their devices look the same?
