Message Text: HTC and Microsoft today unveiled the first signature Windows Phones, the Windows Phone 8X and 8S by HTC. The smartphones feature the new Windows Phone 8 operating system and boast high-quality sound with Beats Audio and increased camera capabilities.

"Pairing HTC's beautiful new Windows Phone 8X and 8S with our brand is a big milestone for both companies," said Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft. "Together we are offering customers a clear choice and a truly unique experience. I'm thrilled to take our longstanding partnership to the next level."

"We've been inspired by Windows Phone 8 to create new smartphones that give the platform the iconic design and personality it deserves," said Peter Chou, CEO of HTC Corporation. "Windows Phone has clearly emerged as one of the top mobile ecosystems and is competitive against any other smartphone platform in the world."

HTC said it created the Windows Phone 8X and 8S "to blend the virtual and the physical utilizing a three dimensional, pure uni-body design based on the Windows Phone Live Tiles." The company is bringing bold and sophisticated colors in a premium matte finish to these devices. The Windows Phone 8X will come in a variety of colors including blue, black, red and yellow. The Windows Phone 8S by HTC will be available in domino, red, blue and gray.

The Windows Phone 8X by HTC features a 4.3" HD-resolution super LCD 2 screen (1280 x 720 ) protected from everyday bumps and scrapes by lightweight Gorilla Glass 2, while optical lamination reduces reflections and glare. It is powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor buffered by 1GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage, WiFi a/b/g/n, NFC and an integrated 1,800mAh Li-ion battery. There's also quadband radio support for GSM/GPRS/EDGE, HSPA/WCDMA (850, 900, 1900, 2100MHz) and LTE for U.S. carriers.

For the first time, HTC is introducing a 2.1mp, f/2.0 aperture, 88 ultra-wide angle front-facing camera in the 8X model, which allows up to four people and more to be captured at once. It also supports 1080p video capture. The rear camera sports an 8mp CMOS sensor with backside-illumination (BSI) for improved low-light performance, along with an f/2.0 aperture, 28mm lens and a dedicated imaging chip. A physical shutter button makes it quick to capture spontaneous action, even if the phone is locked.

Exclusively available on HTC smartphones, Beats Audio provides studio-quality sound. The Windows Phone 8X by HTC featuring Beats Audio also offers an audio amplifier powering the 3.5mm audio jack and the speaker.

The Windows Phone 8S by HTC boasts an LCD 4" screen with Gorilla Glass. It will be shipping with HSPA on board. Under the hood is a dual-core S4 clocked at 1GHz. The CPU is augmented by 512MB of RAM. 4GB of storage is baked in and also a microSD slot is available for expansion. The handset is powered by a 1,700 mAh battery. However, the Taiwanese manufacturer decided to skip a front-facing cam on this device and the sensor around back is only 5MP and limited to 720p video capture.

With the Windows Phone 8X and 8S by HTC people can carry their favorite music, movies and photos with them wherever they go. With the Windows Phone Store and Xbox Live, ithey can enjoy the latest video, music and games on the move.

The Windows Phone 8X and 8S by HTC will be available beginning in November by AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless.
