HTC has made a comeback in India with the launch of the HTC Wildfire X. It is the company’s first smartphone launch in India after the Desire 12-series, which was launched last year in June.
The Wildfire X features a 3D OPVD finish at the back and a 6.22-inch HD+ in-plane switching (IPS) liquid-crystal displays (LCD) display with a water drop notch. It has minimum bezels and manages to get a screen-to-body ratio of 88.8 percent.
Under the hood, HTC Wildfire X gets powered by a 2.0GHz MediaTek Helio P22 Octa-core processor with 3GB and 4GB RAM options. Storage options include 32GB and 128GB internal memory, with 256GB expandable storage via microSD. The handset runs Android 9 Pie and is powered by a 3,300 mAh battery that supports 10W charging using a Type C USB port.
In terms of optics, there is a triple camera setup at the back with a 12megapixel primary sensor, eight megapixel telephoto lens and a two megapixel depth shooter. The smartphone also utilises 8X hybrid zoom to click photos. For selfies, there is an 8megapixel front camera with an 86-degree field of view.
On the software side of things, HTC has included a MyBuddy feature that users can use as a personal security tool. The device can be pulled out from the shell to trigger a loud alarm, send live location information to friends and family and record and transmit audio/video of surroundings in real-time.
HTC has tied up with Vodafone and is giving users Rs 3,750 worth of recharge coupon along with an additional 0.5 GB data per day for the next 18 months. These can be availed using the MyVodafone/MyIdea app.
Connectivity options include 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS/ A-GPS and 3.5mm headphone jack. The HTC Wildfire X is available in a single Sapphire Blue colour with 3GB + 32GB for Rs 9,999 and 4GB + 128GB memory for Rs 12,999. The smartphone goes on sale starting 22 August, exclusively on Flipkart.
