HTC 8XT breaks cover, arrives to Sprint with BoomSound and Windows Phone
The HTC 8XT has just been officially announced and it brings HTC’s outstanding BoomSound technology to Windows Phone. While technically a successor to the HTC 8X, the new 8XT adopts the look of HTC’s more affordable Windows Phone, the 8S.

The HTC 8XT will first come to Sprint this summer priced at the affordable $99 on a two-year contract. You do have to wait for a $50 mail-in rebate, though, to arrive at that price.

The 8XT has nothing to brag about in terms of hardware. It's got a 4.3-inch display with a middling resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. Under the hood hides a 1.4GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400 chip with 1GB of RAM and 8 gigs of internal storage that you can expand via microSD cards. On its back, it sports an 8-megapixel rear camera capable of 1080p video capture and nested in its circular housing.

The phone will of course support Sprint’s new and fast 4G LTE network. Take a look at it right below.
