While our Windows Phone 8 attention has been solely focused on the Windows Phone 8X and Lumia 810 as of late, the HTC 8S just passed through the FCC complete with support for T-Mobile HSPA+ bands. There’s no official confirmation that either carrier will pick up the device to sell, but it does allow for the possibility for customers on both AT&T and T-Mobile to use the phone.
The 8S arrives with a 1GHz dual-core processor, 4″ WVGA 800×480 display, 512MB RAM, 4GB internal storage with microSD support, 5 megapixel camera and a 1700mAh battery. Other notable features include Beats Audio, 720p HD video capture and a dedicated camera button.
It’s likely we’ll find the 8S on carriers to our north as well as US Cellular, who has already confirmed their pickup of the device. If the Windows Phone 8X, Lumia 810 and unlocked Lumia 920 just aren’t right for you, you can likely grab the 8S overseas and import it.
