Different from other competitors, HTC holds its event after that of Apple. It debuts its first Windows Phone 8 lineup with the new Windows Phone 8X and 8S.

Regardless of the partnership with Nokia, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is glad to see more phones running Windows Phone and says 8X truly a Windows Phone hero product.

Beats Audio is coming to Windows phones for the first time ever. That will be one of HTC’ advantages. Amplified by Beats Audio, users will get awesome listening pleasure with deeper bass, crisper vocals and detailed high notes. To compete in the photography space, the 8X has 8MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture and HTC’s Image Chip technology and can capture 1080p video. Besides, it easily fit more people in the shot with an ultra-wide-angle front camera that captures nearly triple the area of most other front cameras.

Another smaller one, 8S, aims to the mid-range market. Powered by a slightly less powerful 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm S4 processor, the 8S  offers a 4-inch WVGA (800×480 pixels) super LCD display and 5MP camera with 720p video shooting.in addition, it owns only 4GB of storage with microSD expansion and Beats Audio technology lacking of built-in amplifiers.
