HTC Hima to have Windows Phone version?

HTC Hima to have Windows Phone version?
Just yesterday, a tweet from @upleaks revealed that the next HTC flagship handset would not be called the HTC One (M9), and is actuallycodenamed the HTC Hima. And while the Hima is expected to launch with Android 5.0 pre-installed, we just might see a Windows Phone version of the device according to @upleaks, who sent out a brand new tweet to that effect. The tipster did write that this rumor is "#Unconfirmed".

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.
