After they botched up One VX’s release, initially scheduled for November 16 and delayed with no notice and for no apparent reason, HTC and AT&T decided to do the only “honorable” thing left – they launched the device quietly, with no fuss and hype whatsoever.
The VX started selling before the week-end started, but it was only hours ago people noticed it was going out to early adopters. As expected, the 4.5-incher is $49.99 with a two-year contract from AT&T, $299.99 with a shorter 12-month carrier agreement and $399.99 with no contractual obligations.
Though it’s definitely not the most impressive member of the One family, the VX can’t exactly be called a mid-range device either, having specs which would have warranted it a place under the high-end sun just months ago.
The One VX can brag with a 1.2 GHz dual-core CPU under the hood, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of on-board storage, a 5 MP shooter on the back, Android 4.0 ICS, LTE and Beats Audio. The 4.5-inch panel is no pushover either, boasting a 960 x 540 pixels resolution.
