Is This Render HTC’s Accord Windows Phone 8 Handset?

We’ve heard the HTC Accord mentioned a couple times before, supposedly arriving as one of three Windows Phone 8 handsets from the manufacturer. A number of hardware specs for the model have also been rumored, but we had to get a look at the phone itself. There’s a new render out today that may just be the Accord; let’s take a look.

First off, yes, this appears to be running Windows Phone 7, rather than the expanded tile layout we’ll get with WP8. That’s not necessarily a sign that this is fake, as HTC could have just used an older screenshot along with the new hardware design. You’ll notice, though, that it does have the proper-design Windows logo.

Supposedly, this image was extracted from an HTC-released ROM, which The Verge confirms. If that’s indeed the case, it sounds quite likely that we’re looking at real hardware here – if it’s the Accord or not is another matter.

The source reaffirms some hardware specs we had heard already, like a 4.3-inch 720p screen and S4 SoC. He also mentions both 8GB and 16GB versions of the phone, microSD expansion, and an eight-megapixel camera.
