HTC One X arrives in Canada

HTC's flagship One Series smartphone, the HTC One X, has gone on sale in Canada, with carrier Rogers Wireless offering the LTE version of the handset from today. Priced at CA$169.99 with a new, three year agreement, the One X has a 4.7-inch 720p HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor, and an 8-megapixel camera with Full HD video recording.

There's also Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich along with the latest iteration of HTC's Sense interface and app suite. As the top model in HTC's 2012 line-up, the One X is targeting those who want big phones; there's no word on whether Rogers customers will also get the option of the more compact HTC One S, with its somewhat more manageable 4.3-inch screen.

Plans in Canada for the One X kick off at $52.35 per month, which nets you 200 minutes, unlimited evening/weekend calls, and 500MB of data. Alternatively there's a 1GB plan available, with the same talktime bundle, for an extra $10 a month.

There's more on the One X – albeit in European Tegra 3 form, with no LTE connectivity – in our full review, while an overview of the sort of performance to be expected from the dual-core version is here. In the US, the One X will drop on May 6 priced at $199.99 with a new, two-year agreement.
