Looks like Nokia isn’t the only manufacturer that will offer colourful Windows Phone 8 devices with HTC announcing two new smartphones simply called Windows Phone 8X and Windows Phone 8S. The 8X packs a 4.3 inch screen (1280 x 720 px), 1.5 GHz dual core processor, 16 GB of internal storage with colour choices of yellow, blue, red and black.

The 8S packs a slightly smaller 4 inch screen (800 x 480 px), 1 GHz dual core processor, 4 GB of internal storage + micro SD slot with blue, black, gray and red colour options. As we have come to expect from HTC phones both the 8X and 8S will also pack Beats audio technology. Check the photos and specifications after the break.
