HTC One X will be a Tegra 3 quad-core phone everywhere but in the US

Well here is some interesting news regarding what was supposed to be HTC’s quad-core Android phone. Well, actually, it will still be sporting the Tegra 3 quad-core chipset in it everywhere it is launched except for here in the US.

Instead of featuring Tegra’s quad-core chip, the HTC One X on AT&T will be sporting a Qualcomm S4 dual-core chip due to LTE incompatibility with AT&T’s LTE network. The Tegra 3 chipset won’t be compatible with any LTE radio chipsets for at least another few months so it isn’t really anything AT&T did.

This didn’t happen though because AT&T wanted to screw it’s customers out of the quad-core version of the phone. It was simply a technical issue. Mind you a lot of people love the S4 1.5GHz dual-core chip from Qualcomm so lots of AT&T customers looking to upgrade should still be happy. If you were looking forward to having a Tegra 3 quad-core chip in there though, you are out of luck, unless you move somewhere outside of the US which we are sure at least one person is crazy enough to actually do.
