Say hello to the latest Windows Phone 8 flagship: the HTC Windows Phone 8X. HTC says that the unibody construction is inspired by the beauty of live tiles in Windows Phone, and we have to admit this looks like a stunning device.
It appears all of the rumors were true, and the specs will look very familiar. Faced with a 4.3-inch Super LCD 2 with a 1280x720 under the protection of Gorilla Glass, the 8X display is actually one of the most pixel-dense screens on the market at 341 ppi — which beats the Nokia Lumia 920 and the Apple iPhone 5. Meanwhile the 8X is powered by a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 processor and 1 GB of RAM, comes with support for LTE, NFC, Beats Audio, a 1800 mAh battery, and the 8X comes in at 10.2 mm thick.
HTC has highlighted the camera in the 8X as a key area of differentiation, thanks to the presence of its patented ImageChip. The rear 8-megapixel f/2.0 sensor matches up with the Nokia Lumia 920 camera specs-wise, and HTC says it is the same technology taken from their flagship One X. Meanwhile, the front-facing camera is worthy of some praise for its ability to record full 1080p HD, aperture of f/2.0, and 2.1-megapixel sensor.
The Taiwanese manufacturer is going to launch the HTC 8X and 8S on over 150 mobile operators around the world that will include AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon here in the States. Stay tuned for more coverage throughout the day!
