HTC has announced their next generation Windows Phone device, the Windows Phone 8X. Designed and developed by HTC, the company is partnering with Microsoft on the advertising front to make this a true flagship phone for the new Windows Phone 8 platform.
The new phone was designed to be a physical interpretation of a live tile, according HTC’s Graham Wheeler. The device features a 4.3″ 720p Super LCD 2 display, a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, an 8 MP camera and 1080p video recording, NFC support, and will come in the now seemingly expected jubilee of colors, which HTC has playfully named California Blue, Graphite Black, Flame Red and Limelight Yellow. The Windows Phone 8X will also featured Beats Audio, a first for the manufacturer.
The device also comes with a beefy 2.1 MP front facing camera for Skype calls, with an f/2.0 lens and BSI sensor in order to improve performance in low light situations. It’ll be coming to AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon in the US (Orange, O2 Telefonica, MTS, Three UK, T-Mobile, and Vodafone overseas) and will launch early November for an undisclosed price.
