For a little while there, it felt like a lot of info on HTC’s upcoming Windows Phone 8 lineup was leaking out, but that trickle of news has quickly dried up. We hope to get some official word from HTC on September 19 about what it’s been up to, but in the meantime, a smidge more about the HTC Accord/Windows Phone 8X (or is it 8S?) has emerged.
According to this source, contrary to the previous rumors we heard, there won’t be any microSD expansion available on this model. We’re not sure if we should believe that, as talk of a grayed-out microSD option makes it sound like there just wasn’t a card in the phone when this guy used it. It supposedly has a “solid feel” to its plastic construction, and the 8-megapixel main camera is said to be quite fast and takes “phenomenal” pictures. The source claims the phone will be available on Verizon LTE; we had already heard about launch plans for T-Mobile.
The same story making these Accord claims also mentions the possibility of a larger battery for HTC’s One X+ Android, but it sounds like that’s not coming from any first-hand knowledge of the phone, and might just be an assumption made due to the revelation of a slightly-thicker case.
