Rumors on the upcoming HTC Windows Phone 8 devices started to pour in a few months ago, though the Taiwanese company has yet to confirm any of these speculations.
Although it’s not yet clear how exactly HTC plans on taking Nokia on the Windows Phone market, it appears that new info on one of the unannounced WP8-based handsets has just emerged online.
A photo of the alleged HTC Accord
, one of the Windows Phone 8 smartphones that leaked for the first time back in June, was recently published by an XDA Developers forum member via Twitter.
Along with the said press photo, several specs of the HTC Accord have been unveiled also, then again there have been no confirmation from the handset maker so far.
Today, a new render of the purportedly HTC Accord has been published by the same XDA Developers forum user. It appears that this is as schema of the phone, and looks the same as the device leaked in the first picture.
According to the latest hearsay
, HTC plans to unveil three Windows Phone 8 smartphones in the third week of September, the Zenith, Accord and Rio.
HTC Accord is a mid-range WP8-powered handset, the Zenith will be the company’s new Windows flagship smartphone, while the Rio is said to be the cheapest in the series.
