Specs leak for the HTC One (M8) for Windows; don't expect any changes
On August 19th, HTC is expected to introduce the HTC One (M8) for Windows. If you like the design of the phone, but favor Microsoft's mobile OS over Android, here is your opportunity to get exactly what you want. The phone could be ready forpurchase as soon as August 21st via Verizon. If you know the specs of the Android model, you know the specs of the Windows Phone 8.1 version.

The phone offers up a 5 inch, Super LCD3 screen, protected by Gorilla Glass 3. The 1080 x 1920 resolution means that the display has a 441ppi pixel density. A quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 is under the hood, with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage inside. Need more storage? A 128GB capacity microSD slot is available. The Duo camera set-up is here as well, with the 5MP wide-angle front-facing camera. A 2600mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 is pre-installed. That means Cortana is supported on the phone, ready to make predictions for the next World Cup.

The phone basically is the same exact handset that has excited Android users for months. That means the stereo BoomSound speakers are here, and the handset supports the HTC Dot View case. And yes, it might seem redundant with Windows Phone, but BlinkFeed is still offered on the model. It will be interesting to see where Big Red prices the phone, since the Android version can be had for $99.99 with a two-year pact. The Windows Phone model could start at $199.99 under contract.
