The Desire X, the new mid-range device that HTC revealed ahead of IFA, looks like a pretty solid offering for those looking for an affordable, decent new smartphone.

We’ve already learned most of what there is to know about the new HTC Desire X, which was heavily leaked before its official launch. The device will feature a Super LCD 4-inch screen with 480 x 800 pixels resolution, a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, and 768MB of RAM. Everything is packed in a sleek casing that looks like a cross between the designs of the One X and the Desire V.

Today, we also got treated with a “first look video”, graciously provided by HTC itself. However, so far HTC failed to mention anything about the price and availability of the Desire X. But others were less secretive, so we now have the first indication of when and for how much you will be able to get the new Desire X.

A listing went up on the online shop, revealing the Desire X’ price and approximate availability date. The device will go for £190 (£228 including VAT), which is about $362 or €288 (tax included). For comparison, that’s about half of the price of the Galaxy S3, which currently goes on Clove for £395.00 (£474.00 with tax). North American readers, keep in mind that devices usually cost in Europe substantially more, so the Desire X might be a bit cheaper when it crosses the Atlantic.

In addition to the price tag, the Clove listing reveals that the Desire X will first become available in late September.

Will you get one?

    The ram part is the thing that makes me run away from that thing :(

    Completely agree MasterMuffin. Currently own a Desire HD, and the ram is the same, and even though the processor is newer, the difference between the S2 and S4 Snapdragon is the fact that the S4 is duel-core. Both are only 1GHZ. How about we push out some new, exciting phones, rather than re-release old ones suited up in a new design. I for one, will not be buying the Desire X.


    Totally agree the RAM is terrible & I really dont see this doing well. Kind of a shame as its a very nice looking device. -KID ANDROID
