The Windows Phone 8X by HTC was officially announced on September 19th. This smartphone was HTC’s contribution to help build up Microsoft’s new, very stylish, Windows Phone OS. The LTE-enabled 8X is a gem of a device as it comes with 1.5Ghz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB RAM, 8-16GB versions and an 8MP camera.

On this same day HTC also unveiled the Windows Phone 8S. Bell stepped forward and declared that they would be adding it to their lineup, but for some reason it’s slipped way back behind the curtain and there’s been limited info about its pending release. According to a screenshot we received of Bell’s inventory system it looks like a launch in near. Accessories have started to show up – cases, skins and screen protectors. Unfortunately there’s no word on an exact release, or price points.

(Thanks tipster!)

      What do you mean more than one? TELUS will also be carrying the ATIV sometime in the near future.

    I get for most of us its Highend/flagship devices or nothing, but what I think most of us forget is that the majority of people don’t buy flagship devices…

    Yes I personally use a 920, but at the same time I am always on this site…

    My mom or my sister… they would never need a 920 or 8x… The 820 or 8s would be perfect for my mom…

    Mid range phone is where the majority of people buy there phones.

    If the 8x superphone is $0 how much is this phone going to be?

    Most Windows Phone users (24%) are on the Lumia 710, a solid mid-range device, and 16% are on the 610 (low-end). It’s clear that the pick-up for Windows Phone is in the low and mid-range segment, much more so than high-end.

    IMO the HTC 8S and Lumia 82x-series should be cheaper, e.g. $300 and $350 tops, respectively.
