We don’t exactly know what has made Haier want to get into the smartphone/tablet game right now, but we’re rather glad they did. Although their gadgets won’t challenge the likes of the Galaxy S3 or Nexus 7 anytime soon, they have more than decent spec sheets, and, provided they’ll come at the right prices, they could draw some attention.

The first gadget to be unveiled by HTC at the IFA is a far from impressive budget-friendly phone which might get lost in the crowd if it won’t be priced correctly. The Desire X has been leaked for a while, has starred in a bunch of unofficial photos and has had an almost complete spec sheet since a couple of days ago. Here are press photos and confirmed specs.
