HTC Accord aka 8X with Windows Phone 8 specs reportedly leaked
Specs and new image of the Accord?
The same source who leaked the original Accord images has come forward with more info this morning on the device, expected to be sold under the name 8X (similar to the One X series).
The specifications do fit in with the mid-range expectations as it reportedly has...
- 1.2GHz dual-core CPU
- 16GB of storage/1GB of RAM
- microSD expansion
- 4.3” 720P Display with Super LCD2
- 8MP F2.0 camera with a 28mm lens; ultra-wide angle front-facing camera
- Bluetooth 2.1, NFC and Wi-FI round it off
The device is rather nice looking and we’ve heard from our own sources that the phone will come in a variety of colors—an obvious move to compete with Nokia and their Lumias.
More of course is to be revealed on September 19th here in New York City, where we will cover the event live. HTC was rumored to be launching three Windows Phone 8 devices, including a high end phone called 'Zenith'. Though we're hearing that phone won't be coming soon, if it were even real to begin with.

I think the 820 will have quite a good camera itself, minus the fancy OIS the PureView 920 has.
If I understand this chart correctly. The qualcomm chipsets suport BT 4.0
Is it a driver issues?
Any rumors as to what Magenta is getting?
Seriously. If you want WP on Sprint, it'll be late 2013 or 2014 before Sprint gets its head out of its ass.
Its just an 8MP, decent f.20 - but its now been surpassed by a graphene BIS sensor and OIS on the Lumia.
The 920 verus iPhone and SG3 demo was _amazing!_
If its true (and not a "trick") the 920 is an amazing low light camera. Which for many (us in the UK who spend most of our time in the pub or darkness) is the perfect event/party cam.
Much to love. The HTC specs.... meh.
