Windows Phone HTC One hardware sounds largely unchanged


Despite some rumors last week that suggested HTC may be wrapping-up its time in the land of Windows Phone, the company remains publicly committed to the platform. If it really is to continue developing WP8 handsets, what could be next for the company? Earlier this summer, a rumor claimed that HTC might be working on a Windows-Phone-running of its flagship Android One handset. Now we’re hearing about such a model again, this time going into a little greater detail on the phone’s hardware configuration.

While that earlier rumor said that this WP8 One would keep the same general look, it was light on many specifics, not knowing, for instance, just how large a screen might be present. This new account, attributed to “good sources with ties to HTC,” plainly identifies the phone as having a 4.7-inch 1080p Super LCD 3 – which sounds just like the screen on the original One. Similarly, this source says to look for the One’s 2GB of RAM to return. We could also be seeing 32GB as the base storage option, with no 16GB configuration.

This all sounds pretty promising, but we’re almost worried it sounds too much like the Android-running HTC One, with someone just parroting the specs in the hope that little actually changes. After all, we’ve yet to get a hint of hard evidence to back up this theory, and right now it could be just a lot of wishful thinking.
