HTC Wildfire X with triple-camera debuts in India

After a year of hiatus, consumer electronics major HTC returned to India with the launch of Wildfire X on Wednesday.

It can be noted that the Taiwanese company has signed a deal with an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) InOne Smart Technology to offer HTC-branded Wildfire X in India.

The new HTC Wildfire X is a budget phone. It sports a 6.22-inch HD+ display and comes with Android Pie OS, 2.0GHz MediaTek octa-core processor, 3GB/4GB RAM, 32GB/128GB storage and a 3,300mAh battery with 10W charger support.

The highlight of the HTC Wildfire X is the photography hardware. It houses a triple-camera module with primary 12MP sensor, 8MP and a 5MP and it boasts 2x Lossless optical zoom and 8x hybrid zoom, which no phone in the budget segment offer.

On the front, it comes packed with an 8MP shooter with 86-degree Field-of-View, which will come in handy for large group selfies.

The new HTC Wildfire X also boasts MyBuddy, which helps the owner to quickly summon friends and family during a troublesome situation like getting attacked by criminals. The SOS feature also blasts loud alarm sound to attract attention in the surrounding areas. It will send real-time geo-location information to friends and family, and there is also an option to record and transmit video ( & audio) of surroundings.

The HTC-branded phone will be available exclusively on Flipkart from August 22 onwards in Sapphire blue colour option. The Wildfire X comes in two configurations-- 3GB RAM + 32GB storage and 4GB RAM + 128GB-- for Rs 9,999 and Rs 12,999, respectively.
