HTC’s smartphone business is still in trouble. This is probably the reason why they are resorting to a Chinese manufacturer to make their latest budget-friendly offering, the HTC Wildfire X.

The HTC Wildfire X is almost entirely made by InOne Smart technology. It was then licensed by HTC to have their name printed on it and sell it as their own.


Initially hitting the Indian market, the Wildfire X has some pretty interesting things going on with it.

For one, it has a triple camera setup on the back. It consists of a 12-megapixel primary shooter, and an 8-megapixel sensor with a telephoto lens that can provide 2x of optical zoom. Lastly, there’s a 5-megapixel depth sensor.

The device also comes with an accessory called MyBuddy. When triggered, it puts out a loud distress alarm and sends out your live location to family or friends in case you’re in danger. You can also use it to find your phone and vice-versa.

Other than that, the rest of the specs are pretty standard for an entry-level device. The HTC Wildfire X is powered by a MediaTek Helio octa-core processor, has a 6.2-inch HD+ waterdrop display, and a 3,300mAh with 10W fast charging support.
