HTC Desire X launches exclusively to Optus, $0 on $35 or $299 outright

HTC and Optus have today announced that the HTC Desire X will launch exclusively on Optus. The Desire X — as its name gives away — is a mixture between the high-end One series and the familiar Desire series of devices. The stylish looking device doesn’t hold back on specs, with some quality hardware alongside a fairly affordable pricetag: $0 on Optus’ $35 plan, or $299 on Optus Prepaid.

Those specs include:

  • 1GHz Dual-Core Snapdragon S4 CPU
  • Android 4.0 w/ Sense UI 4
  • 4-inch Super LCD 800×480 Display
  • 5MP Camera w/ BSI Sensor
  • 4GB Internal Storage / 768MB RAM
  • Beats Audio speakers
  • 1650mAh Battery

Given its low outright pricing on Optus Prepaid, we’d suggest going in that direction should you wish to buy this device. Keep in mind that’s it’s more than likely going to be locked to Optus’ network.

    Ah man…it’s pretty much a direct upgrade from the Incredible S…excluding the camera.
