Windows Phone 8 certainly looked set to change the way future smartphones would work, and so far the impression has been nothing short of optimistic. HTC did mention that they will be supporting the Windows Phone 8 platform, So far, there has been some insider information on what HTC has in store for their future Windows Phone 8 devices, with the Rio being at the bottom of the new food chain, carrying a 4″ WVGA display, 14.4Mbps HSPA connectivity, and a 5-megapixel camera with 720p video capture ability. There is only 512MB RAM, but at least the Qualcomm MSM8227 processor, which is part of the company’s Snapdragon S4 Plus range.
Right after the Rio would be the HTC Accord, which features a 4.3″ 720p Super LCD 2 display, an 8-megapixel camera that is also capable of Full HD video capture, 42Mbps HSPA+ connectivity, NFC compatibility, and 1GB RAM – but of course, there is a faster dual-core processor which might eventually change from the speculated MSM8260A chipset.
As for the aptly named HTC Zenith, this puppy will come with a 4.7″ 720p Super LCD 2 display alongside a similar 8-megapixel sensor that is found in the Accord, in addition to 42Mbps HSPA+, and a yet unnamed quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. All three models are tipped to ship later this year, where the Rio and Accord will arrive this October, while the Zenith is slated for a fourth quarter launch. Of course, these are all but speculation.
