Windows Phone 8 Summer Hardware Gets Rumored


With the exception of Nokia and its Lumia 520 and 720 models, the last few months have been pretty quiet when it comes to new Windows Phone hardware. There have been plenty of rumors about what might be next, and today we get to hear a few new ones, with some claims attempting to round-up what hardware will be arriving in the near future.

Now, this info comes from a Reddit thread, and while it’s posted with some authority, we really can’t attest to just how accurate any of it is; as such, please don’t take any of this as gospel.

We’ve already talked a lot about Nokia’s EOS and Catwalk models, and according to this they should both be out by the end of August. In the same timeframe, we could see new models from Samsung, HTC, and Huawei.

HTC’s is no real surprise – the device codenamed Tiara – but this source does mention two versions of the phone, one with and one without LTE support. Samsung’s model supposedly has the codename Cronus LTE, but we’re at a loss for any specific info on the model (besides, presumably, LTE connectivity). Huawei’s could arrive as the Ascend WQ 5, which may hint at a handset with a large (for Windows Phone) five-inch display.

If there’s any truth here, we’ll hopefully be hearing more about this models in the coming weeks.
