HTC just unveiled the Windows Phone 8X, a handset that runs on the new Windows Phone 8 mobile operating system from Microsoft. The handset’s name is quite long, and honestly a bit confusing since it has the name of the OS that runs it, but it is the name HTC chose so we better get used to it.
The HTC Windows Phone 8X is the best in the Windows Phone8 line from HTC. The phone’s highlights include a 4.3-inch 1280 x 720 Super LCD 2 display with Gorilla Glass 2, dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage and 1,800mAh Li-ion battery. For connectivity it has everything you’ll need in a mobile device like WiFi a/b/g/n, LTE and NFC. HTC is bringing the Beats Audio technology to the HTC Windows Phone 8X, so audio enthusiasts may find this interesting.
The camera on the HTC Windows Phone 8X is one of its stronger features. It has an 8-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 lens and LED flash and a 2.1-megapixel front camera with 88-degree ultra-wide-angle lens. Both cameras are capable of shooting videos at 1080p.
The HTC Windows Phone 8X will be available starting November in California Blue, Graphite Black, Flame Red and Limelight Yellow colors. If you think the HTC Windows Phone 8X looks a bit like the Nokia Lumia, you’re not alone. That was the same impression I got upon seeing the Windows Phone 8X. There’s no word yet on pricing and availability in the Philippines.
