World-class camera for the photographer in you. Take amazing photos - even in low light.
HTC ImageChip ensures you capture the highest-quality, crisp, true-to-life photos. The camera features our best-in-class f/2.0 lens, optimising the experience for low-light, so your pictures will be great even when the lighting isn't, such as dimly lit restaurants, indoor gatherings or at sunset.
Quickly capture every picture with the physical camera button.
Capture the moment forever with instant activation (even from the lock screen!) with the distinctive external camera button. Instantly point, shoot, share.
The 8X provides a simple, human feel combined with an innovative, unique unibody construction resulting in a phone with a perfectly sculpted, continuous form, without bumps or protrusions and for the camera, the buttons are completely flush with the body, adding to the iconic design aesthetic.
Unique colors and finish.
The ultra-unique, premium matte finish comes in a variety of distinctive colors to be bold, sophisticated, and adventurous just as diverse as the people who use them. The 8X will be available in California Blue, Graphite Black, Flame Red and Limelight Neon.
Brilliant display in any viewing condition.
Images look better than ever - even in direct sunlight or at off-center angles - on the HTC laminated display screen with its brilliant color and crisp contrast. The tough, lightweight, scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass screen fends off every day wear and tear so you enjoy a long-lasting beautiful, clear display.
