Nokia, HTC and Huawei new Windows Phones summer plan leaks, WP phablet update to follow
Reddit has been the source for many insider sources gushing out mobile industry rumors that turned out true before, and the latest postings concern the Windows Phone crowd.

And so, if the poster is to be believed, we are looking at quite the crop being introduced during the summer, from the usual suspects like Nokia and HTC, but now Samsung gets thrown into the mix, too, though it is probably a confusion with a Win 8 notebook or tablet of sorts:


We are mostly interested in Nokia's camera-centric Lumias here, especially if the EOS transfers the amazing camera from the 808 PureView to the world of modern interfaces, but are eagerly awaiting what HTC has up its sleeve, too, as it just stated today that it will stick to Windows Phone alongside with the Android portfolio. If the UltraPixel tech from the HTC One, and its amplified stereo speaker system makes it over to WP, then we'll be even happier. Huawei's effort will likely port Ascend D2 hardware over to Windows Phone as well.

As for the expected Windows Phone GDR2 update for the summer, it is apparently already in the hands of manufacturers to toy with, and the source mentions an upcoming Max iteration, which might be the GDR3 update we've been hearing about, that will allegedly bring support for phablets with Full HD 5-6" screens, like the one rumored to be in the works from Nokia, and an extra column of live tiles on the homescreen. Let's not forget we also spotted ZTE phone with WP onboard and huge screens last year, which at the time seemed like too wacky of a rumor.
