The HTC 8X, and please pray to whatever to God you hold that the name stays that short, features a 4.3-inch Super LCD II 720p Gorilla Glass display, 1.5GHz dualcore Snapdragon S4 chipset, 8-megapixel f2/0 BSI camera, optical lamination touchscreen, 16GB of internal storage (but no microSD slot), WiFi a/b/g/n, NFC, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, and multiple sensors like a compass and GPS. Whew. There’s also Beats Audio and the phone’s twin amps, one for the headphone jack and another for the speaker. The phone can also record 1080p Full HD video, even with its front-facing camera, which uses an ultra-wide angle 88-degree lens so that you can cram four people into a photo at once.
The HTC 8S is the less-impressive-yet-more-affordable model. It features a 4-inch WVGA display, 1GHz dualcore S4 chipset, 5-megapixel f/2.8 camera, and 4G of internal storage, but it does have a microSD card slot. There’s no front-facing camera, but the rear camera can record 720p HD video. You still get Beats Audio, but not the twin amps.
Both phones will be available in November 2012.
