If you missed out on Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, and are still looking for a wallet-friendly Android smartphone, then AT&T has you covered with the HTC One VX.
Just in time for the holidays, the carrier added the midrange smartphone to its lineup for a mere $49.99 with a two-year contract. Exclusive to AT&T, the One VX features a 4.5-inch, 960-by-540 screen and a 5-megapixel camera in a design that’s similar to the One X
The One VX comes in a white color finish with silver accents and runs Android 4.0 on a 1.2-GHz, dual-core Qualcomm S4 processor. It has 8GB of internal storage plus a memory card slot. Slightly more exotic features include NFC and support for aptX high-quality Bluetooth audio.
AT&T said the phone sports “one of the slimmest unibody form factors in the industry at just 9.19 millimeters thin.”
“In the future, the original HTC One X and HTC One VX are planned to be upgraded to HTC Sense 4+ with Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), which will include the improved camera capabilities and new Tap and Go function currently available on the HTC One X+,” AT&T said.
AT&T previously promised to begin selling the One VX on Nov. 16, but it appears the carrier’s launch plans were delayed.
PCMag’s lead mobile analyst Sascha Segan got some hands-on time with the device back in October and said it’s “very well built and classy.” For more, see PCMag’s Hands On: HTC One X+ and One VX.
