HTC Wildfire X Unveiled In India - Achtung Button For Free

HTC seriously took up the developmentreborn from the ashes of the Wildfire family. Following the weird HTC Wildfire E, which was presented to the Russian public in an unconventional way - through a telemarket, the HTC Wildfire X smartphone more adequate to the present day was announced. This time the announcement took place in India.

HTC Wildfire X turned out to be a pretty devicecurious. On the one hand, it is clearly a budget device based on a chipset of not the highest class, with a screen of not very high resolution, on the other hand, the camera is triple, and even with a double optical zoom.

The main photomodule includesA 12-megapixel camera with large (1.25 μm) pixels, a 5-megapixel depth sensor and an 8-megapixel camera with excellent (it’s not clear which way) direction from the 12-megapixel focal length. Most likely, the 8-megapixel camera has wide-angle optics.

The front camera is hidden in the drop-shaped cutout of the screen. It has an 8 megapixel sensor.

The screen is 6.2-inch with a resolution of 720x1520 pixels. It is quite normal for a not too expensive model. The battery is 3300 mAh, charging 10 W, the port for connecting it is Type-c.

There is a fingerprint scanner. There is also a gyroscope. NFC support is not provided.

The device is offered in two varieties, significantly differing in the volume of the built-in drive.

Varieties and prices in the Indian market:

3 GB RAM + 32 GB ROM 10999 rupees (10 200₽)
4 GB RAM + 128 GB ROM13999 rupees (13 000₽)

The kit includes the fun accessory MyBuddy. This device looks like a lighter, in fact, is a separate SOS button from the smartphone. The application possibilities are wide: it allows you to find a smartphone that has landed somewhere under a sofa cushion, can send a message about the location and / or alarm from it, remotely activate audio and video recording on the smartphone. It is assumed that the device should serve as insurance in case of a meeting with those who want to somehow offend the owner of HTC Wildfire X.
