HTC Accord render leaks out: a colorful 4.3-inch Snapdragon S4-based Windows Phone
The HTC Accord is said to come in an 8GB and a 16GB version and pack an 8-megapixel rear camera, NFC support and expandable memory via microSD cards. We can’t see a front facing camera on this press photo, though, but it could still turn out to be there. It would be a sore omission, if it’s not.
This image of the HTC Accord comes from an HTC ROM, obtained by XDA-Developers’ user Football. Interestingly, the home screen shows the typical layout for Windows Phone 7.x but not a trace of Windows Phone 8. We can confidently guess that it probably was just an earlier render, and of course, the final HTC Accord will ship with WP8 on board.

Is this HTC? Looks like LG to me.

looks nokia lumia to me...
i wish that manufacturers will release a quad core version.. they all run same chipset... i just wish microsoft allow at least other manufacturer (NVIDIA Tegra, TI OMAP, Samsung Exynos) to produce WP on these chips....
they all got same hardware, now the only problem to them is the looks and how will it utperform one another!

You can clearly tell its WP8 by the Windows button on lowermiddle screen!

Dude its clearly windows Mobile (7.5 or 7.8) type version. In windows Mobile 8 there wont be arrow at right side as Tiles are now resizable !!!

HTC changed design by copying from Nokia. The top is wasting too space look like toy, I don't like it, it should be edge to edge display is more modern day smartphone.

It doesn't seem too bad. Look at where the clock is, the top bezel doesn't seem to be out of line compared to what's available today. There's got to be some distance between the ear piece and screen and edge to edge display on the sides of the phone may make handle a bit odd.

How is there wasted space at the top? Its proportional to the bottom look at the clock on the top right.

The device itself is definitely Windows Phone 8 because the menu botton carries the WP8 Logo. But why are the metro tiles pictured in it WP7?!! The arrow at the upper right side pointing to the right definitely makes the metro tiles in it of WP7 variety! Maybe this is a fake?

S-LCD 2 is better than HD SAMOLED, but when it comes to Windows UI, i prefer the latter because of deep blacks..

Looks very plasticky and toy-ish? Maybe the color is misleading, but this would be a very different-looking HTC for sure. Think I'd like the "old" HTC design better.

Fake... too narrow for a phone...the thumb won´t reach the top of the other ledge. I doubt HTC would craft something s**tty like this.

Darn HTC, can't you do better than this?
Why is your WP8 device looking Lumia-ish?
Why not a WP8 on something that looks like a One X? Now that would be different! A game changer...

Good luck selling a purple phone to a man.

For all of you criticizing the design......
We haven't even seen the back yet

xD Nokia is obviously setting the WP8 Table here.
this needs good differentiaters or the next wave of Lumias will take supremacy with ease. give me Beats Audio, more color options naturally, a metal design and some minor, practical HTC software and i'd take a look.
