Accord Windows Phone 8 device from HTC appears

WP Central

The usual warnings of rumour caution apply here but this looks like this could have some weight. In what appears to have been discovered from a HTC ROM, a new HTC device sports a mind-bending shade of purple. We have already reported on the leaked specifications of HTCs future Windows Phone 8 wares, and this colour usage certainly receives our attention.

We have to point out the obvious here and say, its running Windows Phone 7.5. Granted its not sporting a standard colour scheme so could just be HTC experimenting with getting those shades right.  The body design is certainly not what we normally see from HTC, perhaps this signals some exciting things coming from one of our favourite device makers?

Accord Windows Phone 8 device from HTC appears blue too!

The specifications of the Accord are:-


  • Dual Core Snapdragon (MSM8260A)
  • 4.3 Super LCD2 720p
  • HSPA+ 42Mbps
  • 8MP Camera 1080p HD video capable
  • NFC
  • 1GB Memory

Rather odd that any render of a device meant for Windows Phone 8 stardom would get produced with WP7.5 running on it. For the time being, we’re going to wait and see. With Samsung already out in the open with its new devices and Nokia just about to tell us something is about to change next week, when will HTC spill the beans?
