HTC may well have just stolen the show at Mobile World Congress. The company has just announced its flagship smartphone for 2012, the third in its One series of phones. It’s called the HTC One X and, you guessed it, it’ll be available on Three in the very near future.

This is the ultimate lifestyle phone. It supports a whole host of new features which are designed to help you make the most out of every moment. In fact it’s so jammed packed full of good stuff I literally don’t know where to start, but I’ll give it a go.

First things first, the design – arguably one of the greatest things about a HTC device. The One X is super slim measuring in at just under 9mm. It also comes with ‘bleeding edge’ hardware. This has nothing to do with the red stuff (thankfully), but it does mean that the screen takes up as much of the front of the phone as possible, allowing you to make the most out of the stunning 4.7 inch HD display.

If you enjoy taking and sharing your own photographs then you’ll find the One X hard to beat. It has an enhanced 8MP camera that’s seriously best in class. Its cutting-edge Pureview™ technology means it takes razor-sharp images, but the thing I love the most about it is its incredible shutter speed.

The One X takes pictures in under half a second from the lock screen – something pretty unique to this phone. No more blurry images, and no more missed moments. You can even shoot your very own HD creations, as well as set the camera to take burst mode shots. In layman’s terms this means you can snap up to five shots a second so you can choose the very best picture before you share it with the world. Last but by no means least you can also take stills from video mode. Seriously impressive. We’ve had a good play around with it out here in Barcelona and it really is something else.

The One X naturally runs on Ice Cream Sandwich, the latest version of Android. It comes with the new and improved version of HTC Sense which is not only faster but more customisable too.

Beats Audio™ is present in the phone’s list of features, and Beats now also supports a great range of apps such as Spotify and Tune In radio.

On to performance, and the One X is fitted with a NVIDIA 1.5GHz quadcore processor. Any tech aficionado will tell you that in this day and age, power is everything. You want a phone that delivers you pages and loads screens in a fraction of a second, and the speed at which you can whip through the navigation of this device is almost unparalleled.

As you can tell, we’re pretty excited about this one, and we’ll share more details as soon as we can. Check out or sneak peek video for our quick hands on. Who’ll be first in the queue?
