HTC Bringing Windows Phone 8 To Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile
HTC today announced its first two phones for Microsoft's new Windows Phone 8 OS. HTC has exclusive use of the Windows Phone 8 brand for the actual phone model names. The flagship model will be called the "Windows Phone 8X by HTC", and the lower-end model, the "Windows Phone 8S by HTC". Microsoft and HTC will market the phones together as "signature" launch phones for Windows Phone 8. Both phones have a similar hardware design, that evokes the Windows Phone software with its bold colors against black and squared design.
- Windows Phone 8X sports 4G LTE (in the U.S. version,) a 1.5 GHz dual-core S4 processor, 4.3-inch 720p HD screen, NFC, 8-megapixel main camera with backside illumination, f/2.0 lens, and HTC ImageChip acceleration, plus a 2-megapixel front camera with wide-angle lens. The 8X also comes with Beats audio, including a unique 4-volt amplifier for better sound. The unibody design features a tapered Gorilla Glass front and a matte back, available in four main colors. The battery and 16GB of memory are embedded.
- Windows Phone 8S sports a 1 GHz dual-core S4 processor, 4-inch screen, 4GB of storage plus a microSD memory card slot, 5-megapixel camera with HTC ImageChip acceleration, Beats audio, and Gorilla Glass front. It will be available in four color combinations. An LTE version is not currently planned.

Microsoft is finally ready to launch the unique, dual-screen Surface Duo device it first revealed almost a year ago. The Android 10 device has two 5.6-inch OLED displays, joined by a narrow 360º hinge, which can work together as one 8.1-inch display.
Microsoft has tapped HTC to build the iconic launch phones for Windows Phone 8. These sibling phones are similar, with the Windows Phone 8X being the higher-end of the two.

Samsung has revealed new details of its Galaxy Z Fold2 foldable phone, the successor to last year's pioneering Galaxy Fold. While Samsung has improved or refined most aspects of the design — including the hinge — the much larger outer display stands out, having grown from 4.6 to 6.2 inches, and now protected by Gorilla Glass Victus.
HTC delivers one of the first Windows Phone 8 smartphones in the 8X, a thin slab that includes LTE 4G, an 8-megapixel camera, and a dual-core processor. The 8X's spec sheet may be full, but we found a few things it's missing.
