HTC came forward with first 2012 premium phone, One X, at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona This Monday, 27 February. HTC One X is the first of the company’s line of Android-powered One series.

Not only is One X HTC’s first premium phone to show up in the market this year but it is the first quad-core smartphone to emerge in the market as well.

The One X features Android 4.0, the most up-to-date (and coveted) version of the Android operating system, topped with a revamped version of the HTC Sense interface, Sense 4.0. Unlike the buttonless Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the One X features three touch-sensitive buttons below the display, for back, Home, and pulling up recent apps.

However, Ice Cream Sandwich is not the only thing that is attractive in this stroke of an artist. From software to features to shape to camera, everything in the latest addition to HTC’s portfolio is state-of-the-art.

First off the screen. HTC has been lagging behind the likes of Samsung and Motorola on the LED/LCD from for one reason, the absence of AMOLED. However, this device has a large 4.7-inch Super LCD 2 display that features a 1,280×720-pixel HD resolution and Gorilla Glass. With a 0.36-inch (9.27-millimeter) profile, the black or white One X is a pretty big device, the same size as the HTC Titan and the Sensation XL.

The multimedia is one of the strong suits of the new device. The camera is 8 mega-pixels, which is low-tech as compared to Sony Xperia S, which has a 12 mega-pixel camera, and HTC Titan II, which has a whopping 16 mega-pixel snapper. But HTC swears this is its most advanced yet, thanks to a new lens (f/2.0), better image sensor, and an imaging chip dedicated to processing photos and videos. On the front, there is a 1.3-megapixel camera on the front that’s capable of shooting 720p HD video. However, most of the work is done on the rear-facing camera that has five levels of LED flash.
