We have previous let our readers know that HTC intends of delivering three Windows Phone 8 smartphones which are rumoured to be releasing next month, the HTC Rio, HTC Accord, and HTC Zenith, but thus far we haven’t been treated to any images of the handsets. However that changes with one handset today as a render of the HTC Accord has been revealed.
The picture of the HTC Accord Windows Phone 8 handset comes our way courtesy of the guys over at The Verge, and by way of XDA-Developers member Football, who used his Twitter account to reveal the HTC Accord image above, which apparently comes from an HTC ROM.
However it appears that the picture shows the device running Windows Phone 7, but does show the handset in purple, so the guys suggest HTC could possibly be adopting more vibrant colours for their Windows Phone 8 smartphones.
The details on the HTC Accord have already been revealed, which suggested that the WP8 handset would have a Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8227 processor; however apparently Football says the device will sport a 1.5GHz MSM8960 dual core processor, the same that powers the Samsung Galaxy S3.
Other known specs for the device include a 4.3inch 7250p Super LCD 2 touch screen 1GB RAM, an 8 megapixel camera, 1080p video, NFC, and microSD expansion. Obviously there’s no hard and fast word on just when HTC will deliver the Accord to the mobile space, but no doubt they will get round to revealing the device in the not too distant future.
