HTC 8X and 8S, the first HTC Windows Phone 8

just launched, followed by the presentation of the new Nokia Lumia 920 a few weeks ago, the first devices with Windows Phone 8, to remember come the end of next October. They are the HTC 8X, new terminal company logo and with a very bold and 8S HTC, a phone with a performance not as powerful but at a much more affordable price. Again this time HTC known for its attention to design, quality of materials and new integration with Beats audio technology that comes built on a software and headphones.

HTC 8X

With a polycarbonate body and bright colors, black, yellow, purple and red (color not arrive in Europe) the HTC 8X riding a dual-core processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 running 1.5 Ghz, 1GB of RAM and 16GB only storage, one of the main points against it not possible to extend this capability via microSD cards, one of the main advantages offered itself in many other terminals. The terminal is also mentioned at the beginning with Beats audio technology.

Along with that is supports LTE and NFC, which is becoming a standard in any new phone that claims (unless the iPhone 5) and a 4.3-inch screen HD 720p Super LCD 2. As this camera offers 8-megapixel sensor in the rear with LED flash and 2.1 megapixel camera on the front with an aperture of f/2.0 and a specialized sensor in low light conditions, which, from the hardware can come in handy for integration with Skype, one of the main assets of Microsoft with Windows Phone 8, and paradoxically less is using.

The battery is 1800 mAh, but as we always prefer to see just behaving in real life rather than serve a number usually varies too as screen size, operating system and version.

As for availability, days after comes in late October, the HTC 8X will go on sale for $599 in early November. Competing against Samsung ATIV and Lumia 920, HTC One X has a good chance of becoming the next flagship terminal with Windows Phone 8, a position that the Taiwanese company could use a blast while watching how Samsung is eaten much of the Android Market and One X One V One S and do not finish off.

HTC 8S

Simpler, more modest but much cheaper and focused on the average consumer. With a touch more youthful also the again comes with a colorful finish and good design coupled with a good terminal building as hallmarks. As for the technical specifications 8S amply meets with a dual core processor at 1GHz and 512MB RAM which is complemented with a 4GB storage, but definitely very little expandable with microSD cards unlike the HTC 8x

Also with Beats technology, the HTC 8S can be considered as the replacement for the HTC Radar with Windows Phone 7.5. The screen is 4 inches and has Gorilla Glass with a 5 Megapixel rear camera capable of recording at 720p, the battery is 1700mAh. Will be available in November.
