Last minute leak: more HTC 8X device photos

HTC's "what's next" event is going to kick off at 11 AM ET in New York - under three hours away - where the HTC 8X is rumored to be unveiled. Regardless of how soon the press conference is, new images of the HTC 8X have leaked that complement the image we previously saw yesterday.

The shots of the device in the wild look almost identical to the renders we saw leaked earlier in the month, right down to the blue-purple shell. For the first time we get to see the back of the device, which appears to have a centered camera and flash (rumored to be 8-megapixels) plus Beats Audio branding (as expected), a Verizon logo plus the logo for 4G LTE - this would correlate well to the rumors of a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8960 chipset inside the 8X, which supports LTE.

Other specs that we expect to see in the 8X include a 4.3-inch Super LCD 2 display at 1280 x 720, the aforementioned dual-core Snapdragon S4 chipset at 1.5 GHz, 1 GB of RAM and up to 16 GB of storage.

We should get some final details on the 8X, and perhaps some other Windows Phone 8 devices, at HTC's press event in just a few hours; it now would be very surprising if they didn't show off a phone that looks like what we're seeing here.

It looks like you can pin individual Office programs to the home screen now. Cool! (OneNote is shown in the screenshot.)

That looks nice. Im loving the WP8 handsets. Its weird that a different OS seems to be inspiring a different take on how the handsets should look.

Unless HTC announce some more WP8 Phones with 4" screens in their press conference I think I'm going to have to bit the bullet and get this phone as my new phone. I want to leave the iPhone but think the size is perfect.

After the awful trouble I've had with the battery and other hardware on my HTC Mozart, I doubt I'll be getting another HTC device.

Same for me. My Trophy has been having a few hardware problems and now it restarts itself randomly.

I don't know anything about the Lumia 822, but even if it's midrange I might take it over this.

I will have to see the features exclusive to this phone first. There isn't that much WP8 phone makers can do to differentiate themselves in terms of the look (UI) so it has to be the features.

Fortunately.

If it's purple-only, I think they're in trouble... but if it comes in a range of colours then I think HTC will show that they have what it takes to take on Nokia in this space.

Yeah, coz it only depends on colors, right? Are you for real?

Hmmm it does... If somebody wants a yellow phone and HTC has none well they'll get a Lumia instead... Now I ask, are YOU for real?

Are you for real thinking people will still buy a phone in a color they hate?

I'm sure if they can make it in ugly-purple, it won't be very hard for them to make midnight black or bright orange

Are you for real thinking that HTC will release this phone only in purple? Common sense, where are you?!

I hope Bell gets this phone since it's not getting Lumias. I have a free phone waiting for me if I sell my soul to them for 3 more years

That speaker grille up the top really looks out of place. If they left it black, it would be much better.

I like it.

The magical black speaker grille design was actually invented by apple, as you may know.
I think they made it purple to avoid being sued.

Haven't they all been silver?
