A few days back we got our first hint at how one of HTC’s anticipated Windows Phone 8 smartphones might arrive, with a leak suggesting that the rumored HTC Accord would launch as the Windows Phone 8X. If that wasn’t enough to convince you, that same name shows up in another leak out today, alongside a few specs for the handset.
Right now, it’s looking like the name’s going to be a mouthful; rather than just the HTC 8X, all the leaks we’ve seen so far have the phone as the “Windows Phone 8X”. HTC may not be much for brevity, but at least that makes it clear to consumers just what this model it.
The leaked specs sheet confirms what we’ve heard about the dual-core SoC, gigabyte of RAM, 4.3-inch 720p display, and NFC support. It also mentions 16GB of storage with an asterisk that could indicate microSD expansion, an eight-megapixel main camera, and Beats Audio.
HTC’s big event is scheduled for September 19, and we’ve got our fingers crossed that we’ll learn full details on its WP8 lineup then.
