We recently reported on the forthcoming release of the HTC One (M8) for Windows Phone. Suspected to be the subject of the HTC press conference on 19 August, the phone is supposedly going to be available to buy just a few days later, albeit only on Verizon in the United States.
At that point nothing of the specs were known. WP Central have now revealed what they allege are the full details:
- Windows Phone 8.1
- 2.3 GHz quad-core, Qualcomm Snapdragon 801
- 32 GB internal storage; micro SD (up to 128 GB)
- 2 GB of RAM
- 5-inch Full HD, Super LCD3 display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3; 441 ppi
- 2600 mAh battery
- HTC UltraPixel camera; 5 MP front-facing camera
- Nano SIM
- HTC Boomsound
- HTC Dot View case
By all accounts this will be identical to the HTC One (M8) that is currently running Android OS but utilising Windows Phone instead. It clearly has been designed to take advantage of the newly relaxed offerings that Microsoft has released for OEMs in WP8.1 Update 1, which we previously mentioned on this site.
Enough of the offerings to the rain gods, let’s start dancing around totem poles to try and get the handset released on these shores.
