HTC, the struggling Taiwanese giant is said to be working on a brand new Windows Phone 8 handset. The device won't look different from company's current flagship device - the HTC One. It should look familiar but not different, claims Neowin.net. Currently, HTC is working on T6, a large size phablet along with mini version of HTC One. Last month, HTC shifted close to 1.2 million units of the One, as per GSM Arena.
For the first time a report states that HTC is working on Windows Phone 8 powered HTC One. It is said to arrive sometime later this year. Further the report says that the phone would have screen size between 4 and 5-inches. The accurate measurement is still as the moment. The HTC One has a 4.7-inch Full HD display. It will sport metallic aluminum body and same Beats Audio.
There are chances to see Ultrapixel camera fitted inside too. Since Microsoft is rumored to announce GDR3 update this year. It would be right time for HTC to announce its forthcoming WP8 version of HTC One.
GDR3 update would help tech vendors to manufacture handsets having Full HD displays coupled with Quad Core processors. On the Nokia is also prepping a large screen handset with 1080p HD screen and Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor around November - December time frame.
It is seen that Windows Phone 8 powered handset lacks modern day processor. Not a single handset having Windows inside comes with Full HD displays. Whereas, Android running phones, for instance, Samsung Galaxy S4 or HTC One packs some killer internal specifications. This is the reason why WP8 handsets are not selling that well when compared to Android devices.
Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 is the third most popular mobile OS after iOS. There are currently four leading hardware partners making WP8 handsets: Nokia, Samsung, HTC, ZTE, and Huawei. Out of them Finnish giant Nokia solely makes Windows phones. Recently, it was said that Microsoft tried to acquire Nokia, but at last moment the deal was cancelled. Stay tuned to GizBot.
