According to an earlier rumor, it has been suggested that the name of the Windows Phone version of the HTC One M8 has been revealed. Tentatively dubbed the HTC One M8 For Windows, the folks at Windows Phone Central claim to have learnt from their sources that the handset could actually be pegged for a launch on Verizon for the 21st of August via the Microsoft Store.
This seems to be in line with an earlier rumor which has hinted that the phone could be potentially released in the third quarter of 2014, and that its release would be no later than the end of September, so guess a launch in August does make sense. The handset has also been rumored to be priced the same as a normal flagship, meaning that it should retail for $199 on contract and around $610 off-contract.
The full specs of the handset have yet to be revealed, but earlier it was suggested that VoLTE could be one of the features that would be making its way to the phone. Also if it is really based on the HTC One M8, we can look forward to a metal-clad body, which some users might actually prefer over plastic.
We’re not sure if it will pack the same specs, such as a quad-core processor, a Full HD display, or if it will even use the same Ultrapixel camera as the HTC One M8, but do check back with us at a later date to see if the rumors pan out.
