It’s just been a few days since HTC made its comeback into India and launched the HTC Wildfire X in the country. While HTC, as a brand, has come back to India, what is important to note here is that the HTC Wildfire X that was launched here is actually manufactured by a Chinese company called InOne Smart Technology for HTC. The arrangement here is similar to what HMD Global has with Nokia. Anyway, at the time of its launch, HTC had announced that the sales of the Wildfire X would commence starting August 22, 2019, via Flipkart. Well, today is the day, and the Wildfire X is now available for purchase. Let us now take a closer look at the specifications and pricing details of this phone.

The HTC Wildfire is sold in two versions here in India. At the lower end of the price spectrum is the base 3GB RAM version with 32GB of storage. This variant will set you back by INR 10,999.
