After what Samsung unveiled the first official Windows Phone 8 devices, HTC is already on the way to revealed their own WP8 devices. That’s what today’s leaked image seems to be, the devices is called HTC Accord, which we saw in a leaked roadmap in late June.
Posted on Twitter by Someone from XDA-Developers, going by the name Football, managed to dig out a rendered image of the Accord along with some specs. The phone will have a 720p screen (4.3″ Super LCD 2 according to the earlier leak), an 8MP camera with 1080p video capture and will come in 8GB or 16GB versions for the built-in storage. This is a Windows Phone 8 device, so it’s storage is expandable with a microSD card. There’s also NFC support, another goodie courtesy of the new OS. The HTC Accord should also feature 42Mbps HSDPA connectivity, according to the leaked roadmap. The processor will be a 1.5GHz dual-core Krait, though that’s hardly a surprise as Microsoft, doesn’t allow for much variation in this area.
The screen shown in the render looks rather like Windows Phone 7, though the Home button uses the new Windows logo. The choice of color for the handset is rather bold, but if it turns out real we hope HTC will offer more standard color options.
We’re waiting on HTC to announce when they’ll hold their Windows Phone 8 event. It probably won’t be long, now that Samsung announced its first WP8 phone and Nokia’s event is in five days.
