HTC Hima to have Windows Phone version?
posted by Alan F. / Dec 05, 2014, 8:54 AM
Of course, the current HTC flagship, the HTC One (M8), is available with both Android and Windows Phone 8.1. Considering that the latter platform does not yet support a display resolution greater than 1080 x 1920, this could be why the latest rumored specs of the phone show a 5-inch 1080 x 1920 resolution screen. The originally rumored 5.5-inch display with a 1440 x 2560 resolution, might be employed by the manufacturer for an Android driven phablet version of the Hima handset.
If HTC does limit its new flagship to a 1080p resolution screen, there is bound to be fallout from those who were expecting the company's new high-end model to catch up with the competition in terms of specs. That would mean offering a QHD resolution screen, 3GB of RAM, and a new rear-facing snapper. Since this phone isn't expected to see the light of day until March, we have plenty of time for more speculation about the HTC Hima to appear.

Windows phone; a platform with so much to offer yet so neglected. However its nice to have a premium offering for this platform. I'm hoping that this will allow others to see its full potential from a device outside of cough "Nokia" cough "Microsoft" eheem. I feel HTC is honestly desperate here and I'm worried that such good talent will disapear.

I hope they do this. It's hard for me to justify leaving my 1020 for the HTC M8 with Windows due to the camera. The OS on dual core is still rock solid on my 1020. I would jump to the M9 if it includes a camera better than the M8's.

Same here, it is hard for me to purchase any new lumia once you use the 1020. Sure some new features are missing but nothing that i gasp about. I truly hope the 1030 or whatever it is called, is shown soon.

Keep your 1020. I used the M8 for about a week before I took it back before the 14 days. The camera truly sucks, especially macros. I use scanning apps (CamScanner) more than anything else and it was pitiful with that device. Now I have a 1520 and it's an enjoyable experience again.

They should keep this up. Loving my m8 with WP, and this gives people more options for the same phone. More OEMs should follow in HTC's footsteps. Still sad that this is coming out soon and I just got mine. Well, I guess the m10 with WP will be my next :p
