Rumored specifications list apparently confirmed
More images of the HTC Proto, which may in fact be the Desire X based on online retailer listings, have leaked online. The small handset was spotted by ePrice.com.hk in its completed form, with initial impressions suggesting it will be a mid-range release, ahead of an expected announcement by the company at IFA later this week.
Previously rumored specifications have effectively been confirmed by the site. The 4-inch WVGA screen is powered by a dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon processor, running Android 4.0 with the Sense 4.0 overlay. Beats Audio, seen branded on the back in earlier images, makes an appearance alongside a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera.
According to Technytt.se, several European retailers have listed the device as the Desire X, while others have opted to call it the "Desire X/Proto" instead. So far, retailers have been reluctant to post specifications and images of the handset, which they are pricing at around $400.
