The HTC Windows Phone 8X
appears to have been undergoing some type of carrier testing in sunny San Francisco, according to a photograph. If we didn't know better, we would say that the three units of the handset along with an older Samsung model, were out sunning. Seriously though, this could be part of a signal strength test
with each unit containing a different radio.
The HTC Windows Phone 8X has a 4.3 inch Super LCD 2 screen with resolution of 720 x 1280 which works out to a very impressive pixel density of 342ppi. Under the hood is a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 processor. The Adreno 225 crunches the graphics and 1GB of RAM is aboard. The HTC Windows Phone 8X sports 16GB of native memory and a rear-facing 8MP camera that captures video in 1080p at 30fps. A 2MP camera on the front takes self-portraits and an 1800mAh battery keeps the lights on.
T-Mobile has already started taking names and email addresses
from those interested in the device. According to Amazon U.K., the phone will ship on November 8th
. As far as unsubsidized pricing is concerned, we've seen a range between $650 USD and $863 USD from Clove and Amazon UK respectively.
