HTC One X gets US-bound testing leak

A contributor posting details to the Android Central forums has given a rare glimpse of the AT&T version of the HTC One X. While his impressions of the LTE-aware version's light weight and good build quality match what we tried ourselves (linked above), he added that the battery life for the Android 4.0 flagship was "really good" compared to most LTE phones to date. The longevity was likely owed to the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chip inside, which builds LTE directly into its core and is much more power-efficient.

The tester added that, although the One X is carrying a slightly larger 4.7-inch screen versus the 4.5-inch Inspire 4G he had to compare, it was much lighter and thinner by comparison. Hes main objection was the absence of a microSD slot and the maximum 16GB of built-in space on the LTE version. Along with the quad-core Tegra 3, Europeans get 32GB of space in return for dropping LTE.

Information passed along suggested that the One X might reach AT&T stores by mid-May, or just ahead of the CTIA spring show later that month. The tipster warned that the date wasn't certain and could be pushed back.
