HTC, the long lost company is now re-entering the big market with a budget smartphone named “Wildfire X“. After all, this phone doesn’t seem to give a fine comeback to HTC‘s lost reign, as this turned to be mediocre when compared its price to the specifications it posses. Check them out.
HTC Re-enters Indian Market With A Budget Smartphone – Wildfire X
Specifications of HTC Wildfire X:
It bears a 6.2″ (720×1520) HD display with a teardrop notch and 19:9 aspect ratio. With Android 9 Pie, this handset’s operations are processed by MediaTek’s Helio P22 CPU and PowerVR GE8320 GPU.
It has a triple rear setup of 12MP wide angular + 8MP telephoto + 5MP depth sensor. Upfront, there’s an 8MP camera in the notch.
Storage includes 32GB or 128GB of onboard storage with 3GB or 4GB of RAM. Has option for expanding the storage till 256GB via MicroSD.
Has Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, WiFi, USB Type-C and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. Finally, it’s powered by a 3300mAh (10W) battery and is available in one color, Sapphire Blue.
This phone was exclusive to Flipkart and is priced as Rs.9,999 and Rs.12,999 for 3GB/32GB and 4GB/128GB respectively.
Though launched, this new entrant, even after holding HTC’s brand tag, doesn’t seem to be cracking the market. In a battlefield of price aggressive Chinese players, HTC’s new Wildfire X is lacking the reasonable specs for its price.
Besides these, there’s a lot of confusion on this new handset’s originality. Though bearing the HTC brand tag, this handset is reported to be manufactured by Taiwanese maker In one Smart Technology. This company may have been into contracts with Lava International, an Indian smartphone maker.
