Today, HTC released a new smartphone called HTC X2. This device was released in collaboration with Japanese operator Softbank. Well, many will be surprised that nothing in form of rumor or speculation was heard about this device prior to its release. This is because it is not an entirely new smartphone, it is the Japanese version of HTC U11 Life. The released smartphone comes with the model number “X2-HT” and it appears that HTC has no plans to release any other high-end device this year.
Just like HTC U11 Life, HTC X2 is powered by a Snapdragon 630 processor coupled with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It is equipped with a 5.2-inch screen with 1080P resolution. One of the differences between this smartphone and the U11 Life is the Operating system. While this smartphone runs on Android One operating system, the U11 Life runs on Android 7.1. HTC X2 is IP67 waterproof and dustproof. In the camera department, HTC U11 Life is equipped with a 16MP while the selfie snapper is an 8MP shooter. Sales of this device which is available in gem blue and ice white colour options will commence next month.
