A Windows Phone Central reader, who chooses to remain anonymous, has sent us photos of Best Buy's upcoming store ad for October 21-27 that lists the HTC 8X as available for pre-order, both in-store and online. The flyer fails to list carrier or pricing information, but the depicted device is AT&T branded. We know from previous announcements that Verizon and T-Mobile will also be getting HTC's flagship WP8 phone. Being that Best Buy offers phones from those carriers as well, it wouldn't be shocking to find the 8X up for pre-order from all three on the same day.
The 8X is HTC's premium Windows Phone 8 offering. It sports a 4.3” Super LCD2 display with Gorilla Glass2 at 720P resolution, a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm S4 CPU, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. It also has a 8MP camera and NFC. HTC is hoping to set the 8X apart from the competition by partnering with Beats Audio to include advanced audio software and a 2.55v amplifier for increased sound quality.
Thanks, for the pics, Anonymous!
