They were once just a couple of leaks, but now the HTC 8X and HTC 8S are both official.
The HTC 8X sports a 4.3-inch 720p Super LCD 2 display protected by Gorilla Glass 2 and is laminated too for reduced glare. There’s a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chipset chugging under the hood, with 1GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage, an 8-megapixel cam ‘round the back and a 2.1-megapixel shooter on the front both of which comes with an F2.0 aperture and can record 1080p HD videos. You also get WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, and NFC, all housed in a svelte 10.12mm thin body. Available in – for the first time, AFAIK – four colorful variants (California Blue, Graphite Back, Flame Red and Limelight Yellow).
The HTC 8S, meanwhile, is its more modest tag team partner in the Windows Phone 8 scene. Compared to the 8X, this one only comes packed with a 4-inch WXVGA resolution LCD touchscreen, a 1GHz dual-core S4 processor, 512MB RAM, a 5-megapixel main cam (none on the front), and doesn’t feature NFC. Definitely not as impressive as the 8X but, on the bright side, that’s pretty much an assurance also that it won’t be as expensive either.
How much less expensive, though, is yet to be known. But don’t worry, we’ve got these two pioneering Windows Phone 8 goodies from HTC on our watch list already, and will give you guys the heads once Philippine availability and pricing info becomes available.
Oh, and as far as the HTC 8V goes, we haven’t given up hope on that one yet. It’s still on our radar.
