Sporting a polycarbonate unibody, the HTC One X has one of the most elegant designs we've seen so far from the Android camp.

It is not all about looks too; the HTC One X is the first smartphone to be powered by NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor. Its 4.7-inch Super LCD 2 display can give the Retina Display of the iPhone 4S and Samsung's AMOLED-touting Galaxy devices a run of their money.
