HTC Edge/Endeavor/Supreme (codenames) - Release name: HTC One X - Model Number: S720e
Quote:
The HTC One X features a beautifully crafted polycarbonate unibody that has the ruggedness of metal but is super lightweight.

+ Curved 3D Gorilla glass, the glass curves around the edges

Described by HTC's Scott Croyle:
Quote:
The HTC One X begins with a beautiful crafted poly-carbonate uni-body, it got the ruggedness of metal but its super-light, the uni-body has authentic color through and through and it's super rugged, super durable. We thought a lot how to get the most out of this poly-carbonate uni-body and we began with seamless construction, the One X has this beautiful piano gloss edge around the perimeter of the phone and a matt back surface, it's the intersection of these two textures that creates a crisp surface break, it's this detail that really maximizes the precision and beauty of the material, we've taken this premium housing and combined it with 3D Gorilla glass, the glass curves and flows over the edge, this phone feels great when you pick it up, in fact when i'm using this phone i'm always rubbing my finger around the outside surface, it really feels awesome, we've obsessed about the tiniest of details on the One X, a good example is the way we've micro drilled the speakers holes to reach that perfect edge, it's attention to detail like this that really sets it apart, i like to describe the One X by distilling it down to three basic ideas, piano gloss side walls, curved glass and a simple iconic camera detail, it's the whole design sysyncly described in three short phrases

HTC’s flagship Android phone to be called One X, Ville to be called One S>>

HTC One X Accessories>>

HTC Ville (codename) - Release name: HTC One S, HTC's Secondary 2012 flagship
Quote:
The HTC One S is for people who want a high-end smartphone in a more compact size. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor with up to 1.5GHz dual-core CPU’s. It also includes a 4.3-inch screen crafted from contoured Corning™ Gorilla Glass. HTC One S brings HTC’s innovative metal unibody styling to a new thin 7.9-mm design, making it HTC’s thinnest phone yet. The HTC One S sports two new finishes that break new ground in mobile phone innovation. The first is an ultra-matte black Ceramic Metal surface that is the result of a microarc oxidation (MAO) process originally developed for use in satellites. It transforms the surface of the aluminum unibody into a ceramic, super-dense crystalline structure that is four times harder than anodized aluminum, enabling the HTC One S to look great over time. The second finish for the One S takes anodizing to a new level with a new patented process that creates a light-to-dark gradient fade that looks gorgeous and sophisticated
Final specs: green is advantage, red is disappointing disadvantage
  • Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
  • 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display @ 256PPI, pentile matrix
  • 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon 4 processor, New krait chip with Adreno 225 GPU
  • Backlit 8 MP camera BSI backlight Sensor with f/2.0 lens, 1.3mp front cam plus ImageSense chipset
  • [COLOR="Green)"]Gorilla glass 2.5D[/COLOR]
  • Beats Audio throughout the whole audio output
  • Metallic uni-body with crystaline ceramic metal finish
  • 7.8m ultra thin

  • 16GB internal
  • 1650mAh battery built-in
  • HSPA+

  • 119.5 grams with battery


Classic HTC aluminium uni-body with new two different finishes:
- Black ceramic ultra matt "Micro-Arc Oxidized" finish with red accents, 4 times more durable than the old aluminium
- Dark to gray Gradient "patented" Anodized finish with blue accents
+ Curved 3D Gorilla glass, the glass curves around the edges

Leaked early Concept


Snapdragon 4 VS Tegra 3

Snapdragon4: 28nm, 2 x Krait @1.5GHz, 2 x 32-bit LPDDR2 memory bus,
Adreno 225 GPU: 8 units, 50% faster > Adreno220, 3x faster > Adreno205, 6x faster > Adreno200

Tegra3: 40nm, 4 x ARM Cortex A9 w/ MPE @1.5GHz + 5th low power ARM cortex A9 companion core @500mhz, 1 x 32-bit LPDDR2 memory bus
Geforce++ GPU: 8 pixel units + 4 vector units, 2x/3x faster than Tegra2

In Anandtech's preview of the One X vs One S during the MWC 2012 announcement, it shows the T3 is going head to head with the s4 in CPU speed, while GPU it beats the s4, the One X has 77% more pixels to render vs the One S, conclusion the T3 is better in web browsing and gaming (multitasking and GPU), the dual S4 has better single core performance.

Further benchmarks affirm that the T3 is better suited for the 720p display, vs iPad2/iPad3 both the T3 and s4 beats its CPU (same Dual A9 1.0ghz CPU on A5/A5x) and between 2 to 3x GPU advantage for the A5x quad core GPU over T3 (unlike the 4x claimed by Apple)

Sense 4.0/4.1/4+

After the massively bogged down heavily 3D animated sense 3.0, HTC went with simplification of it's UI, reducing much of the heavy bloat, eventually by the Sense 4+ JB updated they finally achieved triple buffered locked 60fps throughout the Sense UI.

Thread discussing Sense 4.0>>



HTC official updates

HTC has shown a good record of providing Android updates, they commit updates up to 18 months of the device lifetime, flagship phones have gone through three major Android updates, also most of the beta firmwares are regularly leaked on xda few months ahead of release date, for example:

HTC One X: Ice Cream Sandwith 4.0.3 / Sense 4.0 > ICS 4.0.4 / Sense 4.1 > Jelly Bean 4.1.1 / Sense 4+ > JB 4.2.2 / Sense 5
HTC Sensation: Gingerbread 2.3.4 / Sense 3.0 > GB 2.3.5 / Sense 3.5 (beta) > ICS / Sense 3.6 (Final)
HTC Desire HD: Froyo 2.2 / Sense 2.1 > Gingerbread 2.3.3 / Sense 2.1 > GB 2.3.5 / Sense 3.0 > ICS (Cancelled)
HTC Desire: Eclair 2.1 / Sense 1.9 > Froyo 2.2 / Sense 2.0 > Gingerbread 2.3 / / Reduced Sense 2.1 (final, standalone download)

HTC Development Support

HTC officially supports unlocking boot-loader and have already provided unlocks for most its older Android phones, however S-OFF is not officially supported

Unlocking support and kernel sources can be found on this site http://htcdev.com/

In my opinion both are great phones. In 2012 HTC will prove that is better than Iphone with these 2 babies. I don't know if i can afford one of these. I have to play in Euromillions.

by the way i would have gone with Ville if the screen was HD, i know they chose Amoled this time but really HD displays with over 300DPI density are something else

I'm hoping the Ville will sport a dual core snapdragon 4 instead of snapdragon 3 (the one in Sensation and the new Xperia series) which means improved performance and a better GPU (Adreno 225 or Adreno 305) HTC are the first to use new Snapdragons, so its a very high possibility

I predict HTC will announce the quad core snapdragon 4 device with Adreno320, six months after the release of the Edge, I'm not sure if the leaked Zeta concept are geniune

and to be perfectly honest i worry about the Tegra a bit, nvidia make speedy chips but quality :S i don't know... Tegra 2 wasn't really as massively fast as they advertised, Adreno 205 and 220 remained competitive

I agree hamdir. Ville is ok, but if you look at the specs from that leak, it isn't much of an improvement to begin with. To me it's the same as Sensation XL. I have it and to be honest, I see absolutely no difference between it and DHD. Yes the screen is better and yes it has a bit more juice in it, but really no major difference at all. Edge on the other hand I see as a device that I might possibly keep for a very long time considering it will most likely be quad core and I've read somewhere that camera will be 10mpx.

The thing that really bothers me is that phones are generally getting bigger and I really wouldn't like to carry a 5' phone on me.

yes it seems once google released the galaxy nexus, 4.7 inch suddenly became the new standard, i tried the sensation XL and its really big for me, 4.3 was the max im comfortable with

i think sony has done well with offering the same basic specs on both the Xperia S and Ion with only the looks and screen size as difference, this we way the users have the choice

right now between the ville and edge, im forced to pick the edge despite my problem with 4.7inch

Again I agree. Nothing against Ville really, but Edge sounds like a more mature phone in all aspects. I have given it a good thought and frankly, compared to Edge, I think Ville will be a waste of money. I will however buy both for comparison purposes, but I think I already know who the winner will be.

Not like filthy rich lol, but I have cash for these things. I'm a tech addict so whatever is out new I gotta have it. It's not really an issue with money it's more of a principle. I got my fiancee Rhyme and she loves it.
