TAIWANESE SMARTPHONE MAKER HTC will launch the UK's first quad-core smartphone, the HTC One X, this week on Orange, Vodafone, T-mobile and O2.

The quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3-powered handset will be the first of its kind to become available on the UK market when it is launched on Thursday 5 April.

Sporting a booming Beats sound, a large 4.7in HD 720p display, 1GB of RAM and not forgetting a scoop of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the HTC One X is odds on to be a developer favourite.

The HTC One X sister handset, the HTC One S, will also become available on Thursday for those wanting a less powerful but slightly less expensive adaptation of the smartphone powerhouse.

T-Mobile, Vodafone and Orange will all be offering the HTC One X available free on a £41 per month, 24 month plan, and the HTC One S will be free on a £36 per month, 24 month plan. O2 is yet to set prices on these HTC handsets, but we're guessing it will probably be the same as its competitors.

The HTC One X should give the dual-core powered Iphone 4S a run for its money. µ
