HTC's Windows Phone version of the One M8, the One (W8) for Windows, may see wider availability outside the US as certification documents reveal that the device features LTE bands commonly used by carriers in European markets.
The device was seen undergoing certification at the GSM Global Certification Forum, which revealed that the One W8 included LTE Bands 3, 4, 7 and 13. Band 4 is commonly used by carriers in the US, like Verizon and AT&T, while Band 13 is used by Verizon. LTE Bands 7 and 13 are used in Europe, which suggests that HTC is considering an international launch for its upcoming Windows Phone device.
Other than the certification listing, we don't have any other information to indicate that the Taiwanese manufacturer will indeed bring the device to more markets. The One W8 will likely be unveiled on August 19, during which time we'll have more information regarding availability of the handset.
We'll be live at HTC's launch event, so make sure you stay tuned to Windows Phone Central!
