HTC makes the Desire X official

We’ve been hearing a lot of about the Desire X (aka Proto) for a while now, so it’s no surprise that HTC just officially announced it. This one is going to be a lower to mid-level phone, but it packs a lot for the price. It features a 4-inch (800 x 480) display, a 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4, 5MP rear camera, Beats integration, 4GB of storage, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and Sense 4.0. Unlike the DROID Incredible 4G LTE, the Desire X will sport HTC’s image chip, and it’s paired with a f/2.0, 28mm wide-angle lens. This means you should be able to take some pretty nice photos even though it’s only 5MP. Just like most HTC phones, users will get 25GB of Free storage via Dropbox.

As far as availability goes, it will be available in selected markets across EMEA and Asia Pacific from September 2012. No pricing was specified.
