HTC One X ditches hardware buttons. Possibly

HTC One X ditches hardware buttons. PossiblyWe’ve been jawing about the quad-core HTC Edge since last November, and more recently we’ve been told to start calling it the HTC One X. That doesn’t sound too bad till you throw in the HTC One S, One V and One XL. Sigh.

But I digress. A render of the HTC Edge - sorry, HTC One X - has been kicking around since that first leak, but now we’re hearing that the final beast might be slightly different.

Said render showed the four traditional capacitive buttons (Home, Menu, Back and Search) along the bottom, but – as on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus – they’ve been ditched. Reportedly.

Of course, Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) marks a move away from hardware buttons, and Google has already told us to say goodbye to the menu button.

Expected HTC One X specs include a 4.7in 720p AMOLED display, quad-core Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM and an 8MP shooter on the rear.

HTC is tipped to reveal its wares the day before Mobile World Congress opens officially, so that’s this Sunday. Cripes.

A quad core processor with 1gb ram? doesnt seem worth it? surely the ram will run out long before it goes past needing dual core?
