Announced earlier today alongside the Windows Phone 8S, the Windows Phone 8X by HTC is the Taiwanese company’s new WP flagship handset.
Not long after HTC’s announcement, now both AT&T and T-Mobile have confirmed that they would offer the 8X in the US. AT&T said it’s going to sell the handset “within the coming months”. T-Mobile isn’t more specific, either, saying the new HTC smartphone is “coming soon”, and allowing interested users to register for further info here.
The HTC 8X is obviously a direct competitor to Nokia’s Windows Phone 8 flagship (the Lumia 920), as it has a similar set of features, including: a 4.3 inch S-LCD2 display with 1280 x 720 pixels, 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8960 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8MP rear camera, 2.1MP front-facing camera, and 16GB of internal memory (expandable via MicroSD). The 8X also comes with Beats Audio technology, being the world’s first Windows Phone device to have this feature.
