HTC has launched a number of variants of its current flagship smartphone, the HTC One. There’s the HTC One Mini, the HTC One Google Play Edition and the much rumored HTC One Max. A couple of months back rumors were circulating that the Taiwanese manufacturer might release a Windows Phone powered variant of its popular flagship. Since then we haven’t really heard much about these plans. Given that HTC affirmed its commitment to Microsoft’s platform recently, the rumors have popped up once again.
Last week it was rumored that HTC might give up Windows Phone altogether, given that its WP market share had declined significantly and the fact that Nokia’s Lumia devices are ruling the global WP market. Jeff Gordon, HTC’s Senior Global Online Communications Manager, said that the company is “absolutely dedicated to its Windows Phone lineup.” As per reports, HTC’s Windows Phone powered One will have a 4.7 inch 1080p Super LCD3 display with 2GB RAM, 32GB of on-board storage and Windows Phone GDR3 update, which is the prerequisite for 1080p display support. It is expected that this variant might be released in fall. No additional information has surfaced right now, particularly about the pricing and availability of this device.
