HTC 8X & 8S Get First Pricing in U.K.

HTC’s latest Windows Phone 8 devices have been priced for the first time for those of us living in the United Kingdom. Retailer Unlocked Mobiles is now accepting pre-orders for both the HTC 8X and the HTC 8S, with prices listed as £398.98 (approx. $646) and £224.98 (approx. $364) respectively.

Both handsets are set to land in the U.K. in November. While HTC could not confirm these prices, it “implied these prices weren’t far outside the realms of reality,” according to TechRadar.

As the prices would suggest, the HTC 8X is the more advanced of the two devices, making it HTC’s flagship Windows Phone 8 device. It boasts a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 4.3-inch 720p Super LCD display. There’s also an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and of course, the handset has Beats audio built-in.

The 8S also offers Beats audio, coupled with a 1GHz dual-core processor, and a slightly smaller 4-inch display. Its snappers include a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a VGA front-facing camera. The HTC 8S is expected to land in the U.K. a little earlier then the HTC 8X, but both will come in November.

While you’re waiting, be sure to check out TechnoBuffalo’s hands-on videos with the 8X and the 8S.
