HTC One X, HTC One S and HTC One V are great smart phones. Here is a short comparison of new HTC smartphones

At Mobile World Congress 2012, HTC has surfaced a new line of Android smartphones, the One. The series has so far received three handsets; the One X (One XL in the U.S.), One S and One V under various screen size, performance and form factor categories. The One X is the top of the line and it comes with an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad core processor and a larger 4.7-inch display. Here we make a detailed comparison of the specs of these three handsets. Stick up and check which one will suit you the best when they are up for grabs. The devices are compared under various essential parameters.

Form factor: The high-end One X features the largest form factor. It is also heavier than its younger brothers. It has the dimensions of 134.4 x 69.9 x 9.3mm and weighs at 130 grams. Well, it is 10 grams heavier than One S and 15 grams heavier than One V. Even though, the One X is the premium version of the series with One V being the lower end version. But, if you go for the thinness, you will love the One S, which has a body with 7.9mm density.

Display screen: The One X comes with a large 4.7-inch Super IPS LCD2 display. It has a better resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels at 312 ppi. The One S is a mid-sized version with a 4.3-inch display and the One V features only a 3.7-inch display like Apple iPhone. A judgment on the display size is actually pointless, because there are customers, who want products with various display sizes.

Processor: The One X is up with an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad core processor. It is actually the first HTC handset with the quad core CPU. It was earlier rumored as HTC Edge and Endeavour. The device’s U.S. version, the One XL will run on a dual core dual-core Qualcomm processor. It is because AT&T wants to run it on its 4G LTE connectivity. Tegra 3 doesn’t support 4G LTE right now. The One S and One V come with dual core processors. When it comes to RAM capacity, the One X and One S mount 1GB of RAM, while One V has only a 512MB of RAM.

Storage: The One X, One S and One V respectively feature 32GB, 16GB and 4GB of internal storage. Unfortunately, no models do sport microSD slots for memory expansion. It is actually the biggest deficiency of the HTC One series handsets.

Operating System: The entire HTC One lineup plays with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the much-coveted version of Google Android. HTC has done well in choosing the right operating system for its new handsets. Ice Cream Sandwich is yet to appear on many more handsets. In next couple of months, we will witness to the arrival of a huge variety of ICS handsets in stores.

Camera: Both One X and One S will arrive with terrific cameras. The devices are to highlight 8-megapixel rear cameras with BSI sensor for better image capturing in low-light environs. The devices also feature f/2.0 aperture, a 28mm lens and others. The One V, in the meantime, features 5-megapixel rear camera.

What are special?
Every model of the HTC One series has its own distinguished features. Let us start with the One X, which is the first quad core phone from HTC. The One S, at the same time, will be one of the thinnest smartphones once available in stores. The One V is a phone for budget conscious customers, who can pick it without any concerns. After all, the entire HTC One series is featured for some special capabilities, which make them outshine their handset rivals. Those items mainly include Beats Audio support and toned-down HTC Sense UI.

HTC will bring the devices into stores in the second quarter this year. The company will have to take on stiff challenge from a number of new ICS and quad core powered handsets on market by then. Anyway, with a line of phones that have suitable picks for all types of customers, HTC attempts to establish its presence stable on market.
