According to a new report from Neowin, HTC is looking to bring Windows Phone 8 software to a variant of the HTC One according to information from sources.
The blog is reporting that the device will feature a 4 – 5 inch display, mostly metal body, Beats Audio, and the GDR3 update for Windows Phone.
“The phone is expected to be announced in the fall and arrive sometime later in the year,” Brad Sams writes for Neowin. “It is believed, but not confirmed, that the phone will use HTC’s UltraPixel technology for the camera too.”
“If true, knowing that the GDR3 update should land sometime later this year, we should expect to see the next wave of new Windows Phone devices to arrive around that time as well,” Brad Sams explains. “GDR3 is expected to bring support for 1080p displays and quad-core processors on Windows Phone 8, so HTC’s handset could feature some pretty impressive specs.”
This will come as a boost for Microsoft. The Company’s Windows Phone 8 software is struggling to compete with the like of Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android mobile operating system.
