HTC One X is built to stun with amazing camera, authentic sound and 4G
TORONTO, April 20, 2012 /CNW/ - HTC, a global designer of smartphones,
and Rogers, Canada's largest provider of wireless voice and data
services, today announced the new HTC One X smartphone is now available
in Canada running on Canada's fastest and largest1 LTE network. Recently revealed to high acclaim at Mobile World
Congress, the HTC One X is the first smartphone in the HTC One series
to arrive in North America. The HTC One series represents the HTC's
most premium mobile experience with a new level of iconic design,
amazing camera and authentic sound experience.
HTC One X integrates Android 4.0 (ICS) with HTC Sense 4, the new version
of HTC's branded user experience that introduces HTC ImageSense, a new
suite of camera and imaging features that set the device apart from
other phones. With ImageSense, the HTC One X rivals traditional digital
cameras with improvements to every part of the camera, including the
lens, the sensor, and even integrating a new custom HTC ImageChip.
"People take photos on their phone more than any activity other than
making phone calls, as evidenced by half of the photos uploaded to
Facebook last year coming from a mobile device," said Rick Babington,
executive director, HTC Canada. "With the importance of photos in
people's lives and the need for better quality audio on smartphones,
HTC focused on creating a camera and audio experience that customers
will love and use daily."
To dramatically reduce the time it takes to capture important moments,
the camera can be quickly launched from the home screen and the
super-fast auto focus allows continuous shooting by simply holding the
shutter button. The smartphone also enables full 1080P HD video
recording with the ability to concurrently take still photo while
recording video, as well as the ability to capture photos from
previously recorded video. HTC One X provides an easy way to save and
share photos and video with 25 gigabytes of free Dropbox space for two
years. HTC also gives customers a new way to share any content on their
phone through use of a new wireless Media Link HD accessory* with any
TV brand that support HDMI.
"We're excited to exclusively bring our customers the HTC One X and the
premium mobile experience it brings as Canada's first smartphone with
Beats Audio and the first of the HTC One series," says Raj Doshi,
Senior Vice President, Products, Rogers Communications. "Operating on
Canada's fastest and largest LTE network will allow customers a
best-in-class audio and picture experience to upload images quickly,
download albums and stream HD music videos, with virtually no delays or
The HTC One X delivers improved audio through its authentic sound
experience with Beats Audio technology, which provides a richer and
more authentic sound experience whether consumers are watching movies,

Manager software that automatically installs to your computer when
