HTC has finally taken the wraps off their latest Windows Phone 8 device, and it comes with some interesting branding. Rather than being called the HTC 8X, it's actually called the Windows Phone 8X by HTC - a move that shows the partnership between Microsoft and HTC that dates back to the original Windows Phone devices.
Like the rumors have been pointing to for weeks, the HTC 8X comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, clocking in at 1.5 GHz across two cores and also supplemented by 1 GB of RAM. The display is a 4.3-inch 1280 x 720 Super LCD 2 panel coated with Gorilla Glass 2, and surrounded by a 10.1mm thin curved case that comes in Nokia-style colors known as "California Blue, Graphite Black, Flame Red and Limelight Yellow".
Other specs include a rear 8-megapixel camera with a BSI sensor, f/2.0 lens and LED flash, plus a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera with 88-degree field-of-view; 16 GB of on-board storage and a 1,800 mAh battery. Naturally, Windows Phone 8 is on-board with some exclusive accent colors to match the hardware, plus Beats Audio enhancement.
The HTC 8X (or Windows Phone 8X by HTC) will be coming to T-Mobile, Verizon and AT&T "within days" of the Windows Phone 8 release at the end of October, meaning it should be on the shelves right at the start of November.
