We reported earlier this month that the HTC One VX handset was scheduled for release on November 16. That day came and went, however, with the One VX nowhere in sight and no word on when it would be available. That's all changed, however, with an AT&T spokesperson confirming that the handset is set to arrive on December 7.
The HTC One VX is a mid-range smartphone running Android Ice Cream Sandwich. The display is a cool 4.5-inch qHD panel with Gorilla Glass and 540 x 960 resolution. Inside you'll find a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM. Graphics are Adreno 305, and there's 8GB of internal storage plus an microSD expansion slot.
The camera is decent, with a 5-megapixel rear that can record video in up to 1080p. There's an LED flash and autofocus, and it supports geo tagging, HDR, and simultaneous photo/video recording, among other things. There's also a secondary camera on the front of the smartphone for video chatting; it has a VGA resolution.
Consumers will be able to grab the HTC One VX from AT&T for $49.99 with a two-year contract. The handset supports 4G LTE, and features HTC's Sense interface. The combination of decent features, low price, and mid-range hardware make this a good choice for someone who wants a nice smartphone without shelling out too much cash.
