Verizon confirms exclusive HTC 8X wireless charging support

HTC 8X Hero

Verizon has confirmed it will carry HTC's Windows Phone 8X with wireless charging support. Exclusive to the US carrier, the support is built straight into the device, which will be available to pre-order on November 9th. The Verge revealed the 8X wireless charging in late October, matching the Lumia 822's own charging support.

We understand that HTC's 8X Verizon variant will include Qi wireless charging, making it compatible with a range of docks and accessories. An updated blog post from Verizon confirms the wireless charging addition for the 8X. Pre-orders for the HTC 8X and Lumia 822 on Verizon will begin at 1AM ET on November 9th, with the 8X priced at $199 and the 822 at $99. Both devices will be available on two year contracts.
