HTC has announced an event on September 19, and most probably it was speculated to release of some phone that would be using Windows Phone 8. However, now via a user (Football4PDA) on Twitter who is also a developer on XDA has emerged some info about the event.
There are two phones that are set to be revealed by HTC on the event. These are:
- HTC OneX+ (Android 4.1 or Jelly Bean)
- HTC 8X (Windows 8 Phone)
HTC One X+ will be the first Android phone from HTC to house Jelly Bean with HTC Sense 4.5 (expected) from the launch. It will run on a quad-core Tegra 3 AP37 chipset with a quad-core 1.6GHz processor, however we doubt that every region will get the same high-end specifications.
We have seen a trend where a manufacturer announces a product with high-end processing stuff, but some regions don’t get the announced stuff and users before buying don’t check the specifications properly printed on the product. The above trend can be attributed to lack of supply.
Further, the device has a 5inch HD display, 1GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage, dimensions of 134.36 x 69.9 x 9.3 mm with a weight of 129 grams.
HTC 8X (see the image above) will be the first phone from HTC to run using Windows Phone 8. This is the device that I was more interested in learning about, however specifications don’t excite me.
HTC 8X has a 4.3-inch HD display, uses a 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 1 GB of RAM, plus 16 GB of internal storage. The rear camera is 8MP with 28mm wide angle lens and bright, F2.0 aperture and 1080p video recording, front camera, NFC and Beats Audio.
We will update you as more information pops up in the future.
