Customers can now pre-order a white version of the HTC Desire X from Phones 4u – fresh on the back of its IFA unveil - as the retailer announces it will be the first to sell the handset in this variant.

Any orders made for the phone on selected tariffs over £26, be it in-store or online, will also receive a pair of Beats Solo over-ear headphones which retail for £150. 

Phones 4u is yet to announce when the handset will be in store, merely stating “soon”, but HTC has told Pocket-lint that it expects the Desire X to hit UK stores by September.

The HTC Desire X is yet another “white” exclusive the retailer has struck up with a manufacturer. In May Phones 4u was also the first to offer the Nokia Lumia 900 in white.

Virgin Media has also announced that it will be selling the (regular) HTC Desire X including on its new “Premiere” tariff that offers unlimited data, texts, 2500 minutes on a 24-month contract. Expect more operators to follow in the coming weeks.
