HTC today proved that it isn’t Nokia alone in the race of announcing stunning Windows Phone 8 smartphone as company CEO Peter Chou has just now showcased its two new gorgeous Microsoft Windows Phone 8 OS based smartphones at an event in NYC. The newly launched smartphone are named as Windows Phone 8X – the flagship device, while an another mid-end Windows Phone 8S is also revealed with a slightly affordable hardware to make Windows Phone 8 experience available at an affordable price points.

First comes, the Windows Phone 8X, it’s a solid Nokia Lumia 920 rival with an eye catching design and mounts a 4.3-inch Curved Super LCD 2 display fitted with a Corning Gorilla glass 2 atop for enhanced protection while, its native resolution is 1280 x 720p with an impressive 342 pixel density per inches. Looking under the hood reveals, a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset with same dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait processor, a zippy Adreno 225 graphics processor, matched with 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage . The HTC Windows Phone 8X leads in terms of front facing camera with 2.1 MP shooter in comparison with Lumia 920’s 1.3 MP front cam, the HTC flagship easily does 1080p video with its front facing camera as well its rear facing 8 MP BSI sensor equipped camera with LED flash also does Full HD 1080p videos and captures stunning imagery with F2.0 aperture and 28 mm lens. Though we doubt, will it be able to match with Nokia PureView image clarity and OSI?

Moving over to the new HTC’s mid-end WP8 smartphone, the HTC Windows Phone 8S. It features a neat 4-inch WVGA display and powered with a dual-core Qualcomm S4 chipset clocked at 1 GHz, Adreno 225 GPU and comes with lesser RAM, 512 MB RAM plus bundled 4 GB internal storage but, that slightly low-end specs doesn’t stops the 8S delivering super smooth Windows Phone 8 experience, full PC style Internet explorer 10 tabbed browsing, shoots HD 720p (1280 x 720p) videos using  its rear facing 5 MP camera with LED flash. Sadly, the HTC has chosen its Windows Phone 8S to ship without a front facing camera, and so that makes itself pretty in-compatible for all those video calling/chat buffs.

Lastly, both device comes with a micro-SD card slot for an additional expandable storage of up to 32 GB, offers an array on connectivity options including high-speed 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and as usual, a standard micro-USB port.
