Last week, we posted a benchmark battle between the HTC One XL (AT&T, Qualcomm Snapdragon S4) and the One X (Unlocked, Tegra 3). The reaction to the video was exactly as expected: the S4 enthusiasts defended the XL, while the Tegra 3 fans laughed and patted their favorite processor on the back.

Given how much buzz these two phones are generating right now (especially in comparison with each other), it's definitely fun to watch them go head-to-head against in the benchmark arena, but the last video focused specifically on one test, and one test only (AnTuTu).

It looks like HTC's One X is receiving another OTA update, this time weighing in at ~35MB and bringing the device's software build up to 1.29.401.7. The OTA appears to have begun rolling out today, but unfortunately no one is totally certain what the update accomplishes, as HTC has (as yet) neglected to release an official change log.

Though HTC is remaining quiet about the update, some XDA users have speculated that it fixes color temperature/RGB accuracy, and perhaps fixes some other minor issues.

In recent memory, there are only 2 phones I've been as excited to lay my hands on as the One X, and those are the Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy S II. There's a good reason for my excitement: this is the first phone to pack Nvidia's excellent Tegra 3 CPU. And that's just the tip of the iceberg, really; other touted features - such as the amazing unibody design, ultra high-quality camera, and beautiful screen - help build upon that excitement.

  • 16GB internal storage

If you're still not convinced that this is the best thing that has ever happened to T-Mobile, check out our review of the One S.

With the upcoming release of AT&T's HTC One X, many people are wondering how it compares to the international version, which packs NVIDIA's quad-core Tegra 3 instead of Qualcomm's dual-core Snapdragon S4. One user out in YouTubeLand happened to get their hands on both variants and decided to boot them up simultaneously, as well as run AnTuTu Benchmark to see how they compare head-to-head.

While I realize that benchmarks are definitely not a definitive answer to how well the device performs, they do give a rough idea of what the device is capable of.

Remember way back in December when T-Mo hinted an Ice Cream Sandwich update for the HTC Amaze? Almost five months later, the page has not been updated and an official software update has not been released. Thanks to veteran XDA user Football, however, Amaze owners can download a leaked version of the official ICS update. Considering that the Amaze recently got S-Off capability, it's looking like users have a lot to be excited about this week.

It seems that DroidDoes.com has a way of outing phones before they're actually announced, and once again, that's the story here. Even though it has since been pulled, Droid Life was able to grab a couple of screenshots of the site as it shows off the newest successor in the Incredible line.

As you can see, the specs here confirm our earlier leak:

  • 4-Inch qHD Super LCD
  • 1.2GHz dual-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB built-in storage, microSD card slot
  • 8MP rear shooter (likely the same as the One X/S), VGA front camera
  • 1700mAh battery
  • 2.4 x 4.8 x 0.46 inches
  • 4.66 ounces
  • Android 4.0 with Sense 4

One thing that doesn't match up with what our tipster said, though, is the price listed.

HTC's One X is hands-down the best smartphone released this year. While the version we're seeing here in the States (on AT&T, to be specific) isn't quite the beast the quad-core version found overseas is, the AT&T variant does pack LTE. Other specs:

  • 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 dual-core CPU (Krait architecture)
  • 4.7" 720p display (1280x720)
  • 16GB memory
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front
  • Full 1080p HD video recording at 60fps
  • 802.11b/g/n
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • Android 4.0.x
  • Sense 4.0

Thankfully, those cutting-edge specs aren't going to break your budget, either: the phone is now available for pre-order on Amazon Wireless for $150 for both the gray and white models - that's $50 less than you'll pay to get it straight from AT&T.

Not that we assume you've forgotten, but here's a quick reminder for anyone who has been waiting for the HTC One X on AT&T: pre-orders begin today. You'll have to wait until May 6th to get your device, but with that date still two weeks away, you can at least guarantee to have one in-hand on launch day.

2012-04-22_11h02_32

Specs:

  • 4.7-Inch SuperLCD 2 1280x720 display with Gorilla Glass 2
  • 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon Krait processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • LTE
  • 8MP f/2.0 rear shooter with zero shutter lag
  • 1.3MP front camera
  • NFC
  • Android 4.0.x with Sense 4

The device will set you back $199 with a two-year agreement - a rather reasonable price for what could be one of the biggest flagships we've seen this year.

Over the past year or so, HTC devices have become notoriously more difficult to root/mod/S-Off than the devices of yesteryear. When one series of devices gets cracked, the next generation released by HTC has historically been drastically more difficult to crack.

This has been the case for some of the more recent HTC devices; namely the Amaze, Rezound, Sensation/XE, Vivid/Raider/Velocity, And MyTouch 4G Slide. Up until now, a few of those devices have never even received S-Off status.
