Rumored HTC Harmony Windows Phone looks like HTC One, offers FHD screen and more

Taiwan based handset manufacturer HTC is clearly in love with the design of the HTC One; not only was the design used for the HTC One Mini and is expected to be blown up with the HTC One Max, the next Windows Phone flavored smartphone from the manufacturer will also look like the HTC One according to a new rumor. It's not a bad idea for HTC to do this considering the public's positive response to the design...

Yeah phone will be definitely a gorgeous premium device
but the thing is that its kinda hard to compete with Nokia or Microsoft.
nokia offer great camera,exclusive apps/games etc. But HTC's ultra pixel didn't live up to expectations and HTC has no exclusive games/apps.
Now when it comes to WP it got even worse than Android market where Samsung rules, Especially when nokia been acquired by MS.

At least it would be an option to have a premium WP device on Sprint.

you know all of u have to stop pointing the same things over and over in every wp article! Android has been there for 5 years and apple for 6 years. So they have that many apps. WP came at a time when apple and android is ruthlessly dominating market. So of course it will take a little time. But it has already reached almost 2 lac apps. See blackberry, what happened to it! WP has potential that is why it has survived till now and infact growing! So pls dont say the same things over and over. Maybe Rome was build in a day but mobile OS's dont. On the other hand wp has enough good apps to thrive. Use it once. U will know. Its not perfect but its good enough.

i am an android user, i have xperia E. It cant run any of those games, even if I install it, the phone lags like crazy. even i cant play temple run! And after installing the 6-7th app the phone lags like crazy everytime i wake it up using the sleep button. So whats the point in having so many apps if ur phone cant handle them? I love android JB, especially google now. And FB for wp is deeply integrated everywhere, app is not that much needed and even when its needed the new latest app is same as android. Do check it out. Love android, thats ok, even I do, bt dont hate wp and point things all the time.

One has one of the latest chip-sets not all phones have same chipset so don't start over again One has one of the best CPU GPU offered today so it can run those games but what if someone has older spec phone? android says screw you but not WP it will offer some high end games that isn't available for old android phones. remember my words

Facebook Messenger is INBUILT in the phone. Good job knowing nothing.
18. timukh (Posts: 294; Member since: 04 Feb 2013)
yeah, u will have to open the fb app and go to messages and there u will find the pin to start option. thats it!

so a completely inexperienced person in WP is knocking it??? really? WP honestly doesnt need an app for something built in.....FB
22. HalaMadrid (Posts: 92; Member since: 04 Sep 2013)
I'm talking about Facebook messenger not fb app.
I don't use fb app.

Don't be dumb dude. Your ignorance doesn't mean it has no apps..games?? You buy a 100.00 phone.. Try playing games on a 100.00 android phone.

YES THERE IS A FACEBOOK MESSENGER> IT IS INTEGRATED IN THE MESSAGE App. YOU CAN EVEN LINK THE SAME FB CONTACT AS THE PERSON's Phone Contact AND HAVE A SINGLE THREAD OF Conversation via TEXT & FB Messenger!

FB Messenger is built inside of wp os. there is need to look in the store for what you already have

Idk what your talking about, Facebook messenger is tightly integrated into the text messaging app. With 2 taps I can switch from texting a mobile to texting any messenger including Facebook. Seamless. Also the improved and nearly identical to android/ios Facebook app also has messenger in it. So two separate ways. Aside from the app, windows phones tight Facebook integration is so good I often go weeks without opening the app. And I still see all the feeds and notifications I want. The only reason to use the app, which I must reiterate- is good now, is to view the separate private groups I am a part of.

I agree! It's about time there was a Windows Phone that didn't look like a toy. Nice one for HTC to use the One case. I hope it really happens, and looks like the render.

Yeah, it's beautiful but i say your bad again HTC to bring 4ultrapixel to this great device. My opinion, HTC one should have been selling more than what it did but because of its ultrapixel to pull it down

5. LetsBeHonest (Posts: 1472; Member since: 04 Jun 2013)

3. akki20892 (Posts: 3901; Member since: 04 Feb 2013)
No thankx, i know what Ultrapixel is.........Nokia is better.
Nokia Lumia 1520...........the giangatic mammoth
12. akki20892 (Posts: 3901; Member since: 04 Feb 2013)
yep no doubt about design, but we need all in one. so have to choose Nokia.

I had the htc one, it would get really hot, and the "boomsound" speakers, kept going out..maybe on WP8 OS, it wont get hot
31. Alex123 (Posts: 241; Member since: 17 Oct 2012)
Agreed. But the most disappointed is its Ultrapixel and this is why i and my friends did not buy HTC One
