Of course, the page has been conveniently "pulled down" afterwards, and now there is only a 404 error there, like the error given after you type any phone name in the web address.
HTC One X, whereas the leaked HTC 8X looks much different. To further solidify the argument that this might be a "nice-try" fake, is the listed "1.4GHz quad-core" chip.Moreover, the "screenshot" reveals a device that looks identical with the
Considering that Qualcomm is the supplier of Windows Phone 8 silicon, and with its dual-core Snapdragon S4 reincarnation, rather than the quad-core S4 Pro, the whole thing is to be taken with a grain of salt, as is this WP logo slapped on the back, looking a bit out of sync. What do you think?

HTC putting out a quad core WP 8 has been a part of the HTC roadmap since WP8's developer announcement. I am voting this render is correct, but we will not see it until after the turn of the year due to MS wanting to control the initial launch. Sounds as though MS wants to be able to release software patches easily to all devices if needed, and keeping the first wave of devices uniformed will make that easier. A quad core WP is a smart marketing move, and WP 8 can support it, so why not?
