Today in New York, HTC CEO Peter Chou and Steve Ballmer officially unveiled HTC’s new line of Windows Phones. They are the 8X and 8S as rumored. The 8X and 8S are designed to be bold, bright devices with a premium matte finish and both devices will feature Beats Audio integration. For the first time ever, HTC is also introducing a 2.1MP, 88° wide angle front-facing camera on the 8X that supports 1080p video capture. The rear camera is an 8MP CMOS sensor with backside illumination for great low-light performance, with a physical shutter button to make capturing photos quicker than ever.
Both phones will be available beginning in November for more than 150 carriers across 50+ countries, with AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile being supported in the US. The 8X features a 4.3″ 720p HD super LCD 2 screen with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and NFC support. On the other hand, the 8S will feature a 4″ WVGA display, 1.0GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of storage.
