HTC Windows Phone 8X marketing video leaks

HTC made a big splash last month when they officially revealed the Windows Phone 8X smartphone. While the Windows Phone 8-based device is still a few weeks away from its official launch, its not a surprise to see that HTC is already preparing for its release with some marketing materials.

WindowsMania.pl posted up what looks like an authentic HTC marketing video on YouTube that shows off some of the features of the Windows Phone 8X. Most of the video has a person using the phone on a camping trip in the woods (they must have great reception out there).

The video puts the emphasis on the Beats Audio support, with a nod to Microsoft's Xbox Music service. It also mentions the wide angle front facing camera and the improved low light support on the camera as well.

WPCentral.com points out that the video shows a "4G" logo on the Windows Phone 8X, which would be further evidence that the device will work on LTE networks. The smartphone is already confirmed to be sold on AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon's networks. However, there is still no word from HTC on what the Windows Phone 8X will be priced on those US wireless networks.

That actually looks fairly appealing. And does show where WP has the edge over Android. With Android they focus on specs that make gamers fap. With WP they focus on features.

I wonder if any of these beautiful designs are coming to Android?

The thing here is that this is the first time in a while, that the UI Design of Windows Phone is influencing the design of the actual phones. Android Phones are designed way differently. Taking a Nokia Lumia or the HTC 8 series and porting them over to Android, just wouldn't be same design language

Perhaps they will but they won't match as nicely. Without that UI the picture just isn't compleet. The whole phone is literally build from the ground up to be seemingless with Windows Phone 8.

But that isn't a problem. Even if you don't like the idea of this kind of interface on PCs, it honestly works perfect on phones (and most likely tablets as well). You owe it to yourself to at least check it out before you decide that you want the same phone but with the Android you're already familiar with.

This is a pretty nice video -- much better than most Windows Phone marketing videos so far. Hopefully their advertisements will be something like this.

Why bother? They can't market they Android devices and they will never market these Windows Phones.

This is one of those rare ads that focuses on the phone instead of some stupid stunts or robots.

And yet, there is a video doing exactly that.

Making a video isn't the same as marketing, it vould be thrown in the endless pit of YouTube Videos without anyone seeing it. They have to put it on tv, product placements, billboards etc for it qualify as marketing.

That is a ridiculous statement. The fact that the video exists, is on this site and many others, and is being seen by people is - by definition - marketing. YouTube is a marketing channel. So is TV, product placement, billboards, etc. Each an individual marketing channel, each with its respective audience.

To say that it doesn't quality as "marketing" because you say so is ludicrous.

I'm a sucker for a good marketing video, someone cue the obligatory fry shut up and take my money pic.
This is a catchy video, I'll give you that. I do also like the "Sense" tile, but I suspect this can and will easily be duplicated in 3rd party software, other than that I'm not that impressed with HTC's offerings.
