If the old rockers never die, the smartphones Classics do not either. This is demonstrated by the revisions of well-known terminals that we are seeing recently, with the latest exponent of it rising in the HTC Wildfire X, a new phone that now comes to the market to resurrect that name that the Taiwanese brand so much managed to ring in 2010.
It is not, however, the stellar return that one might suppose, but rather a use of that name for marketing purposes for a input range smartphone, with limited benefits and focused on markets such as India. Despite this, it has a certain appeal, especially when it comes to design.

HTC, but not HTC
One of the specifications that especially attracts attention is that triple camera configuration, with one of the lenses allowing a optical zoom without loss of quality. It is accompanied by RAM and storage configurations that would probably be sufficient to compete in the entry market if the processor were another more powerful one. Beyond that, it does not stand out significantly in any additional aspect.
The most curious thing that hides this device, however, is that it has not been manufactured by HTC or belongs to the brand, according to reports XDA Developers, but the Taiwan firm has licensed its use and marketing to the Hong Kong manufacturer InOne Smart Technolog. It is this company, therefore, that is behind the new HTC Wildfire X, ultimately causing its resurrection to be even more unexpected.
This is the last act in the recent history of a company that has been blurring its market presence smartphones periodically, with very poor sales in recent years and with operational problems of the most diverse nature. HTC is, increasingly, a shadow of what it once was.
