HTC makes great Android phones, and the One is easily one of the top devices on the market, but the company has let its Windows Phone catalogue fall behind a little. It’s not HTC‘s fault really, as Microsoft’s operating system doesn’t support the high-end specs seen on the HTC One. However, that may change when the so-called GDR3 update is released, as it could bring quad-core processor and 1080p resolution support to the platform.
A new leak, published on a site called windowsphoneblogging.com has indicated HTC may capitalize on this when the time comes, by releasing an HTC One-like device with Microsoft’s OS installed. It’s known under the codename Harmony, and according to the blog, it’s going to match the One’s specs. This means we should watch for a 4.7-inch LCD screen with a 1080p resolution and a quad-core Snapdragon processor. The same UltraPixel camera may also feature, ready to take on the might of the Lumia range.
We’ve heard of the HTC Harmony before, but no specifications have been associated with the name, and the website which published the details has no track record on these things, so we should take them as being very unofficial indeed.
That said, it makes sense for HTC to re-use the One platform for a new Windows Phone, and there’s a very good chance support for the technical features will come with the next version of Windows Phone, so we shouldn’t dismiss it as fan speculation just yet.
