HTC 8X, 8S and Butterfly to reach China in mid-December

Posted on Dec 7 2012 - 8:46am by Matt Kaludi

HTC isn’t going to let Nokia keep the Chinese limelight for long: the phone maker has just launched three variants of its late 2012 flagship phones for China’s mainland, all of which should reach local stores by mid-December. Those looking for sheer brawn will want the Butterfly. While it’s ultimately a slight variant on the J Butterfly (Droid DNA to Americans) that should reach China Unicom, the 1080p smartphone should come to the country in rarer brown and white hues alongside the black we’ve already seen in the US. Localized models of theWindows Phone 8X and 8S are similarly inbound, but their aces in the hole should be sheer ubiquity — variants are on the way for WCDMA (China Unicom), CDMA2000 (China Telecom) and TD-SCDMA (China Mobile) networks. We don’t immediately have pricing for the two Windows Phone 8 handsets, but the Butterfly should cost a suitably large ¥4,799 ($771) contract-free.

    I love this theme, great job Magazine3, and also thanks for making this thing! I still can’t find anything wrong with it, although the related post section on the left isn’t very attractive, but I’m sure that’s probably just a widget which can be easily removed or replaced.
