      #43369 - 09/19/12 10:31 AM

HTC today unveil its Windows Phone 8 devices, the 8X and 8S by HTC. These new smartphones from HTC feature the new Windows Phone 8 operating system and boast iconic design, immersive studio-quality sound with Beats Audio and incredible camera capabilities.

HTC 8X:



The Windows Phone 8X and 8S by HTC are perfectly sculpted with a dramatic taper making them feel magically thin in your hand, and because color is such an integral part of the Windows Phone experience, HTC is bringing bold, sophisticated and adventurous colors in a premium matte finish.

Beats Audio, exclusively available on HTC smartphones, provides authentic, studio-quality sound that delivers the spirit of the original recording. For the first time, HTC is introducing a 2.1MP, 88* ultra-wide angle front-facing camera that captures more people at once and also supports 1080p video capture. The rear camera sports an 8MP CMOS sensor with backside-illumination (BSI) for improved low-light performance and a dedicated imaging chip. A physical shutter button makes it quick and easy to capture spontaneous action, even if the phone is locked.

The Windows Phone 8X by HTC and the Windows Phone 8S by HTC will be available beginning in November through more than 150 carriers in 50+ countries including ATT, Verizon Wireless and T-Mobile USA.
