Could we see the HTC 8S and 8V join the 8X Windows Phone?
The HTC Windows Phone event is but days away and we are already hearing rumors as to what HTC has up it's Windows Phone sleeves. We have already seen leaks about the HTC 8X (aka Accord) and now we are hearing scuttle butt about two new Windows Phones from HTC, the 8S and 8V.
Remember, the 8X is reported to be a 4.7" HD Super LCD 2 screened device (earlier speculation called for a 4.3" screen) with an 8MP camera, dual core Snapdragon processor with NFC support. Some see this as the successor to the HTC Titan II and designed after the HTC One X (Android).
The HTC 8S is rumored to be a 4.3" HD Super LCD device and designed along the lines of the HTC One S (again... Android) that also sports the 4.3" screen. Speculation has the 8S having microSD expansion and either a 8GB or 16GB storage.
Last but not last is the HTC 8V that is rumored to be more of an entry level Windows Phone with a 4" WVGA screen, 5MP camera, 512MB of RAM and the dual core Snapdragon processor. And if the rumors hold true with the other "8" Series phones, the 8V will follow the design of the HTC One V (again...Android).
The nice thing about these rumors is that we won't have long to find out if they hold water or not. We do feel that the 8X is simply the One X body with a few cosmetic changes that runs Windows Phone 8. It wouldn't be too far of a stretch to see HTC pull out the designs for the other One Series phones and do the same.
We'll be at the HTC Windows Phone event next Wednesday and let you know how it all shakes out. But curious, if HTC's Windows Phone 8 lineup is the One Series phones converted to Windows Phone 8, is that enough? Or would you like to see a little more creativity on HTC's part?
