HTC Wildfire X unveiled in India with a starting price of Rs. 9999. The device comes with a 6.22-inch Waterdrop display, triple rear cameras, 4GB RAM and powered by MediaTek Helio P22 SoC.
The new HTC phone arrives with a stunning back panel design, and it is the company’s latest smartphone in the Wildfire series. It is even thinner and slimmer with the 7.95mm dimension.

The specifications and feature of the phone aren’t bad at all, but HTC has almost nothing to do with it, as they officially licensed its Wildfire name to InOne Smart Technology, a Chinese manufacturer, who are known for Lava-branded smartphones.
