HTC Accord reportedly to get Beats Audio technology

HTC Accord reportedly to get Beats Audio technology
Friday morning, we showed you a rendering of the Barney-colored HTC Accord. Expected to be one of the Taiwan based manufacturers first Windows Phone 8 handsets, the device will appparently include Beats Audio technology. A source for The Verge says that not only will the phone contain the usual Beats Audio controls, a separate app will be available to control the volume from the phone's settings options. Having Beats Audio on the Windows Phone 8 powered HTC Accord might seem a little surprising considering that the two companies have seen their relationship deteriorate recently with HTC selling back majority ownership of Beats Audio and subsequent speculation that HTC would no longer put Beats Audio technology on its new phones.

HTC denied those rumors and the Taiwan based manufacturer has backed it up, according to the source, by including Beats Audio on the HTC Accord. And similar to the HTC One X, the Beats Audio logo will be displayed on the lower back of the handset. HTC is also rumored to be adding Beats Audio to its other expected Windows Phone 8 models like the HTC Zenith and the HTC Rio.

We should know more around the third week of September when HTC announces its Windows Phone 8 lineup.
