One week back, rumors started arriving that the HTC One VX, which was a mysterious no-show after it didn’t launch on AT&T in November as the carrier previously announced, would finally make an appearance today, on December 7. Better late than never, we suppose, and the One VX has gone and confirmed those rumors with its arrival at AT&T earlier today.
The VX fills a mid-range spot in HTC’s One-series lineup, where it seems just slightly less well-equipped than the One S. Not everything’s a downgrade, though, and while the One VX keeps the qHD resolution of the One S, it graduates to a 4.5-inch screen. Unfortunately, image quality might take a hit, with the switch from an AMOLED to a Super LCD component.
HTC has set the One VX up with a dual-core 1.2GHz SoC, 8GB of flash, and a five-megapixel main camera, all solidly mid-range specs.
The one problem with the VX, as it’s arriving today, is its price: $50 on-contract sure sounds cheap, but that price point has been seeing a whole lot of competition lately, and with all the discounts that are flying around, the One VX isn’t going to look that attractive. AT&T, do this phone a favor and quickly knock it down to free-on-contract.
