HTC Launches Budget Oriented Wildfire X In India
After being absent from the Indian smartphone industry for about a year, HTC has launched the Wildfire X in the country. The newly launched device has a contemporary design and is targeted towards the budget segment. It will be available for purchase starting August 22 and will be exclusively sold on Flipkart.com.
HTC Wildfire X Specifications And Features
The HTC Wildfire has a modern design with a waterdrop notch display on the front and a glossy plastic back. The display panel measures 6.2 inch and it has an HD+ resolution.
Under the hood, the HTC Wilfire X is kitted with an Octa-Core processor that has a clock frequency of 2.0 GHz. Although the company has not provided the name of the chipset, going by its specifications, we believe it is the Helio P22.
In addition to an 8 MP selfie camera, it also has a triple rear camera setup which consists of a 12 MP + 5 MP + 8 MP sensors and a LED flash. The triple rear cameras are aligned in a vertical manner in two different modules.
Besides, the rear of the HTC Wildfire X features the company branding and a fingerprint sensor. The device runs on Android 9 which is skinned with the company’s UI. The device is powered by a 3,300 mAh battery which supports 10 W fast charging.
Noteworthy, HTC has bundled a security-oriented accessory with the smartphone which is called ‘MyBuddy’. The accessory has a pull mechanism which when triggered makes a loud beeping noise and it also sends the live location to family members or the contacts that have been configured in the device.
Additionally, it can also locate your smartphone and vice versa.
HTC Wildfire X Price
As previously mentioned, the HTC Wildfire X will be available for purchase from Flipkart.com, starting 22nd of August. It will be offered in two storage variants for which the price is as follows:
- 3 GB + 32 GB: Rs 10,999
- 4 GB + 128 GB: Rs 13,999
In addition to the built-in storage, it also supports memory expansion upto 512 GB via a microSD card.
Obviously, the HTC Wildfire X does not pack class-leading specifications but the MyBuddy accessory does provide it with an edge over its competitor.
