HTC One M8 for Windows Phone to launch on August 21
A cloned version of HTC One M8 running Windows Phone 8.1 launches soon
The news that HTC is working on a Windows Phone version of its latest flagship (One M8) have been circulating over the Internet and gaining attention for a few months. And now it seems that we are not far from the day when we will have this smartphone in our pockets.
Engadget is reporting that HTC’s first WP8.1 device will be coming to Microsoft Stores on August 21 and the phone will be called ‘HTC One (M8) for Windows’, according to leaked internal documents. The on-contract price is said to be $199, while the SIM-free version costs $610. The phone should also be available through Verizon Wireless in the US by the end of September 2014.
As far as the design we will probably have an exact clone of Android’s HTC One M8 with features like Boom Sound and Duo cameras. The new Windows Phone is expected to come with VoLTE (Voice over LTE) – a feature which will be enabled for us with Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 (GDR1) expected in late 2014.
HTC One M8 has a 5-inch FullHD screen with 441ppi, quad-core processor at 2.3GHz with 2GB RAM, 16 or 32 GB internal storage plus microSD slot, 4MP Dual-camera on the back and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter. There is a 2600 mAh battery powering the handset.
