Taiwan based smartphone manufacturer HTC has recently launched a brace of new devices to showcase Microsoft’s new Windows Phone 8 operating system, which has already seen encouraging early success from Nokia’s Lumia 920 model which has been selling very well.
The two new models launched by HTC are the 8X and 8S. The latter is a mid range offering, while the 8X model is the flagship device and comes with a spec list (an price tag) to match. Key features of the 8X model include a 4.3 inch high definition screen, 16 GB internal storage, a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 8 megapixel camera and enhanced sound quality by way of integrated Beats Audio.
With its more affordable price tag, the spec list of the HTC 8S is slightly lower spec but still impressive. The device includes a 4 inch touchscreen, 4 GB of internal storage which can be enhanced using the built in microSD slot, a 1 GHz dual-core processor, 5 megapixel camera and the same Beats Audio integration.
HTC has stated that it will be concentrating its efforts on the high-end 8X model in the USA. Furthermore, T-Mobile which is the network originally to carry the 8S, has confirmed that it has delayed testing of the device on its network, which pretty much confirms rumours that the mid range HTC 8S model may not be launched in the US at all.

The Windows Phone 8 operating system has already seen encouraging early success, particularly in terms of the sales achieved by the Nokia Lumia 920. The new devices from HTC are also not sure to prove popular, especially as more and more people seek alternatives to the numerous iOS and Android powered devices which continue to dominate the market.
