HTC confirms Desire X name, previously leaked details

New smartphone bridge between Desire and One Series

HTC has shown off its update to the Desire line at IFA 2012. The Desire X, its official name outed earlier this week by European retailers at the same time as a second photo leak, is a mid-point between the Desire and One ranges, with many design influences seemingly borrowed from the One series, if not the brand name.

The 4-inch WVGA display reportedly uses an optical lamination technology similar to the One X, while it also uses the same general curves and physical design. Powered by a dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon S4 processor supported by 768MB of RAM, the smartphone runs on Android 4.0 with the HTC Sense overlay. Suprisingly, the Desire X only has 4GB of internal storage, forcing potential users to not only use the MicroSD card slot, but also take advantage of the automatic uploads to the 25GB free DropBox account. Beats Audio and 5-megapixel rear camera with a HDR mode, auto focus, and one-press continuous shooting rounds off the specifications list.

The Desire X is due to be in EMEA and Asia Pacific regions from September onwards. A possible US release and price is currently unknown. [via The Verge]
