And they aren’t much different to the ones that leaked earlier. HTC is about to unleash a beauty, and this is a welcome new high end addition to the Windows Phone ecosystem.
Rumors about the Taiwanese company bringing this handset to market have been swirling for months now, and it appears that we are very close to seeing the public debut of the Windows Phone 8.1 flavor of the popular HTC One (M8).
Going by the understandably simple name of HTC One (W8), there is every chance that the device is coming to Verizon Wireless exclusively in the United States. Though a global launch is also on the cards.
This recent article reveals the full hardware specifications of the device, and as you would expect, the smartphone comes with the same internal circuitry as its Android counterpart.
These things look best when listed out, so here you are:
Display: 5-inch Super LCD3 touchscreen
Resolution: Full HD 1920 x 1080
Pixel Density: 441ppi
Protection: Corning Gorilla Glass 3
Processor: 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm 801
Cameras: HTC UltraPixel back, 5 megapixel front
The handset comes with HTC Boomsound front speakers, the usual set of connectivity options, Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box, Cortana, along with support for the HTC Dot View case that allows users the ability to see various notifications like date, time weather and reminders, without opening the phone.
Users can also answer or reject calls using this case.
An official announcement is expected next week, and it seems set for an unveiling in the coming days, with launch in key markets soon after.
