HTC plans to unveil a mid-range Windows Phone, known internally as the HTC Tiara. The news joins our earlier coverage on HTC still committed to the mobile platform and future hardware development. What's more is Unwired View reveals that the Tiara will be launched running the next version of Windows Phone 8.
The website also notes that the device will not adopt the same design language as the HTC One Android handset. Running Windows Phone 8 GDR2, the HTC smartphone is said to sport the following specifications:
- 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon CPU
- 4.3-inch WVGA Super LCD2 display
- 1GB RAM
- 8GB internal storage
- 8MP rear shooter (with 1.6MP FFC)
- 1800mAh battery
It's interesting to note that Windows Phone 8 GDR2 is set to be the follow-up update to Portico. Unwired View also confirms that the HTC Tiara shares the exact same specification set as the HTC One SV, excluding the rear Camera. We'll be sure to keep an eye out for further information on the HTC Tania (or rather humorously - the HTC 8T, 8U, 8V, 8W).
