Unlocked Mobiles have had their pricing schemes for the new handsets confirmed by HTC, seeing them sell the HTC 8X for £398.98 and the budget-freindly HTC 8S priced at £224.98. Both prices are for the handsets unlocked and SIM-free.
The HTC 8X (aka the Windows Phone 8X by HTC to use it’s official title) is the top-of-the-line offering, packing in Beats Audio, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and a 4.3-inch 720p HD Super LCD screen.
The cheaper HTC 8S offers a smaller 4-inch screen, 1GHz dual-core processor and 5MP rear-mounted camera.
Both phones run Microsoft’s new Windows Phone 8 operating system, tying in nicely with the company’s Windows 8 desktop PC OS. Both phone’s are expected to hit stores in November.
