Almost everybody knows that AT&T plans to bring the HTC One X aboard its LTE lineup, however, there is a catch to this. What those of you that haven’t payed close attention to the news regarding AT&T’s HTC One X might not know is the fact that the LTE HTC One X (also known as HTC One XL) is really different than the good ol’ NVIDIA Tegra 3 sporting HTC One X, but more on that in a second.
The HTC One X is supposed to come with the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor thrown into the mix. The problem is that the current generation Tegra 3 chips do not have 4G LTE support yet. That means that the HTC One X coming to AT&T’s LTE network is powered by something else.
The chip inside AT&T’s version is the Qualcomm Snapdragon Series 4 1.5GHz dual-core processor we can find in the HTC One S (the former Ville). This might ruin the deal for some of you waiting to get your hands on a quad-core smartphone with AT&T.
Don’t fret though as the HTC One X comes with a 4.7-inch HD display, 1 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, HTC’s Sense 4 UI and of course an 8 megapixel camera and Beats audio integration. Apart from that, the One X features a polycarbonate unibody design, which does not only look good but gives off an excellent feel of quality.
Now the only question that remains is – will you still get the HTC One X on AT&T or do you still want 4 cores in your device? HTC One S has shown that the S4 CPU is more than able to hold it’s own against the Tegra 3 but we’ll only know for sure once AT&T launches it’s version of the One X.
