HTC 8X had a 4.3inch display with Gorilla® Glass 2. The HTC 8X will also have the Snapdragon S4 1.5GHz dual core.The big news is all about the front facing camera. “8X features an ultra-wide-angle front camera lens that fits in every face in the group and the surrounding scenery.”
The front facing camera is an amazing 2.1MP that is 1080p, F2.0 aperture, and has a dedicated imaging chip. No microSD slot but it does have NFC. Take that, iPhone 5.One criticism about the One X was that it didn’t have extendable memory, and it doesn’t seem as though that’s been taken on board, as there’s no way to expand the 16GB that comes with the 8X.
The HTC 8S on the other hand will be their mid range Windows Phone 8 device. It has the Snapdragon 1GHz dual core processor and 512GB RAM. The HTC 8S comes with a 4 inch super LCD touch screen with WVGA resolution but covered in the original Gorilla® Glass.
The one thing that stand out with the HTC 8S is that it does have a microSD slot.There’s no NFC on the 8S but one key difference between the S and the X is that it’s on board 4GB of memory can be expanded. Despite the lighter specs, the 8S is a great looking phone and its striking two-tone colours really catch the eye.
