HTC W8 Windows Phone rumored for Q3 launch

HTC logoWhen it comes to Windows Phone devices, Nokia’s name usually comes to mind, namely because the company has been producing Windows Phone handsets almost exclusively for the past couple of years now. However let’s not forget that Microsoft has other OEMs working for them too, such as HTC, and according to a recent tweet by @evleaks, it seems that we can expect HTC to release a Windows Phone handset later this year.

@evleaks’ tweet suggests that HTC could be getting ready to release a Windows Phone device on Verizon’s network in Q3 2014. The handset will apparently be named the “HTC W8” and will supposedly be based on the HTC A9 device. For those who aren’t familiar with the HTC A9, this is a device that has yet to be officially revealed, but according to the rumors, it is a mid-ranged device with high-end specs that’s expected to be released in the middle of the year.


The handset is expected to share some of the HTC One M8’s features, such as BoomSound front-facing stereo speakers, a dual camera setup on the back, and could sport a metallic design as well. Assuming that this is the case, it seems that the HTC W8 could turn out to be a pretty decent Windows Phone product.

In fact HTC’s previous Windows Phone attempts were actually pretty decent and we have to wonder why they never continued with it. In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but hopefully more details of the HTC W8 will surface soon.
