Nokia and HTC have traditionally been highly regarded when it comes to their Windows powered devices. Both companies will be launching some exciting new handsets after the new software has been launched. There is a lot of hype currently surrounding Nokia’s Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 models. The 920, the Finnish manufacturer’s flagship device for Windows Phone 8 has reportedly sold out in Italy and the U.S, and has been hyped as one of the most exciting devices to be launched by Nokia in recent years.
HTC also has a good track record with its Windows powered phones. The Taiwanese manufacturer is set to launch two devices to showcase the software also. The HTC 8X will be the flagship device, and will be accompanied by the HTC 8S which will be the mid range offering. Until now, we have been left wondering when these phones will be released. However, information from a prominent UK retailer has suggested that we can expect to see the HTC 8X released on the 2nd of November, with the HTC 8S following up a couple of weeks later on the 15th of the same month.
As the flagship device, the HTC 8X will of course have higher tech features, and naturally a higher price tag to match. A 4.3 inch 720p touchscreen, 8 megapixel camera and 1.5 GHz dual-core processor will be among its key features. It is expected that the HTC 8X will sell for around £400 for the SIM free version. Of course, the handset will be available for much cheaper or even free, when phone is subsidized on pay monthly HTC 8X Deals.
A 5 megapixel camera, 4 inch WVGA display and a 1GHz dual-core processor are some of the key features of the HTC 8S. This device will be much more affordable, at around £250 for the SIM free model.
