The HTC Desire X (codenamed 'Proto') was caught out in the wild in Taipei, reports a poster on ePrice. Even better - the leaks comes from an event to promote the phone to retailers, so it came in both colors with plenty of press material.

We already know the basics of the Desire X - a 4" Super Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) WVideo Graphics Array (VGA) screen, dual-core 1Giga Hertz (GHz) processor, 768Mega Bytes (MB) of RAM, Beats audio and a design inspired by Desire V (a dual-SIM phone for Asian markets). The press materials add some more info - the Desire X will run Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich with Sense 4.0 on top, it will have 4GB of built-in storage plus 25GB from Dropbox along with a microSD slot.

Here's the phone in white and in blue, with a quick size comparison between it and the One X:

The capturing camera is a 5MP unit with Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash, F/2.0 aperture and HTC ImageChip (same technology as in the One X and One S phones). The phone will have Bluetooth 4.0 with high-quality aptX audio streaming.

The HTC Desire X measures 118.5 x 62.3 x 9.3mm and weighs 120g - which is about as gigantic as an iPhone. It will not utilize a microSIM card, but we couldn’t disclose from the press materials if it's a dual-SIM phone like the Desire V or not. This final table marks a feature that the One X lacks, but we can't disclose what it is - if you speak the language, we'd appreciate a post in our comments.

Update: Our helpful readers say the first row is labeled "battery", potentially pointing to a removable battery (which the One X doesn't have).

Is the Desire X a dual-SIM phone or not?

The HTC Desire X will reportedly cost $360/€290. Unfortunately, there's no launch date info on the press materials.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
