Recently, HTC unveiled their latest flagship device dubbed as the all new HTC One M8. The handset is now available for sale in the US and the UK on both contract and SIM-free variants of the device.
If you’re a Windows Phone fan, I have a quick question for you. Do you want to see Windows Phone 8 on the new HTC One M8? Well, according to a new rumor, HTC may launch a Windows Phone version of the HTC One M8 or at least use some of the technology.
The report surfaced from WPDang, a Chinese blog with a pretty decent track record when it comes to rumors, reported that HTC is indeed planning to use some of the elements from the new HTC One M8 in an upcoming Windows Phone 8.1 device. This, if true, should come as an exciting news for the Windows Phone community, which is currently dominated by Nokia with their Lumia range of smartphones.
As a quick recall, the HTC One M8 rocks a 5-inch 1080p display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset, 2GB RAM, 16GB straoge with a microSD card slot, Duo Cameras, 5MP front-facing camera, a 2,600 mAh battery and runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat with Sense 6.0.
If the rumor is correct, this should shift some focus from Nokia Lumias to other OEMs. Will you buy a Windows Phone powered HTC One M8?
