TAIWANESE PHONE MAKER HTC apparently has renamed its upcoming smartphones to be called the One X and One S.

The pair of smartphones were both leaked in November last year but now have new names before their unveiling at Mobile World Congress (MWC). Pocketnow said that the Edge will be called the One X where the ‘X' will be positioned as a superscript above the word One.

Slashgear has reported the same thing, with the Ville being called the One S. It also mentions a third handset called the HTC Primo and a follow-up tablet to the Flyer.

Many details have been revealed about the One X including a previous name, which was Endeavor. It could be one of the first handsets to come with an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor. It will also have a 4.7in HD 720p resolution screen, 32GB of internal storage and an 8MP rear facing camera.

The One S will be a slightly less impressive device with lower specifications, which should mean it will be more affordable than the One X. It will be powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon chip and will have a smaller 4.3in qHD Super AMOLED display.

We expect both smartphones to come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, considering that some of HTC's existing devices will be upgraded before the end of March.

HTC doesn't comment on rumour or speculation so we'll have to hang on a bit longer until MWC in Barcelona to see what materialises. µ
