Windows Phone 8.1 version of HTC's One (M8) shows up again, Duo rear camera confirmed

Windows Phone 8.1 version of HTC's One (M8) shows up again, Duo rear camera confirmed
While HTC has yet to announce the One (M8) for Windows, we already saw the handset - thanks to Verizon, which earlier this month posted a render of it on its official website (only to remove it shortly after that). Now, we can see another render of the smartphone, this time showing its rear side.

Revealed by Neowin, the new image confirms the existence of an UltraPixel Duo rear camera with dual LED flash, so the Windows Phone 8.1 variant of the One (M8) certainly seems to be identical to the Android model - just as previously reported. The upcoming handset should offer a 5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, BoomSound speakers, a 5 MP front-facing camera, quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.3 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of internal storage space. Like the Android-based One (M8), the Windows version is made out of metal, and supports HTC’s Dot View case.

We’re expecting HTC to announce the One (M8) for Windows next week, on August 19. The handset could be available to buy via Verizon as soon as August 21, for an unknown price. We assume HTC will also release the device in other markets - but we'll see about that.

But they all will have 2 things in common - Windows Phone and lacklustre sales.

So it's shorter and a tad bit wider?

Nope. They should have the same dimensions. The apparently "wider" aspect of the Windows version is given by the fact that the One (M8) with Android has a light-colored metal rim. But if you overlap them, they're the same.

I wonder how much Microsoft paid HTC for these phones.

They even offered Lenovo and Samsung money to make phones for this failing unwanted 3rd reject platform.

Last paragraph was off topic But this will not sell well Look at Nokias highend 9 and 15, along with 8 series never did sell well, nor did the public had any intrest on those…? Ms just give up No matter what you do or even if you spend billions on advertising, Wp platform will not rise, but stagnatr at 4%.

yet, i constantly find you two commenting on WP articles. Funny, for someone who clearly has no interest in the platform, nor any real objectivity, well it all seems kind of sad.

MS doesn't offer anything ''better''. you have the ridiculous licensing fee, which is a nightmare for most OEMs you have the scaled-down app choices you have the ugly UI .....if this is your definition of choice, you are hardly given any.

no more licensing fee. so you're wrong there. typical. scaled down apps, well the app store is the youngest on the market. ugly UI? well that's subjective, but I think the brains behind Material would candidly disagree.

Oh my bad...but it's still ugly though :-) Otherwise Windows 8 would've been a runaway success

Yes, the entire OS is bland and the tile colors are utterly hideous. Hot pink? Baby blue? Lime green? Did Toys R Us design this thing? I'd be embarrassed for anyone to see it. And why did they go with just solid colors?! It's like Microsoft went out of its way to take us back to the 80s. I'm having flashbacks of using an Apple IIe... Another thing - This is the age of Retina and HD+ displays is it not? Then, someone explain to me why Microsoft insists on not leveraging these powerful displays in the OS elements. No gradients? No texturing? It's just downright lazy and void of any style whatsoever. I say this as someone who is strongly considering the Lumia 920 due to its incredible hardware, but the OS just doesn't do it justice

My god man you are a loser. The irrationality of your hatred and your want for a product to fail because of some imagined slight is amazing. Don't do the whole "I would have bought it but the OS sucked line" you never considered the product. You are just some pathetic idiot who has a grudge against a company who rakes in so much money that your wishes will not just go unheard but you will look like even more of an idiot. MS doesn't care what you think. They do not give one crap that you are so angry at their products and you hate everything about WP8. Stop wasting your energy and do something constructive with your life.

As others have said, there is absolutely nothing that is sexy with regards to iOS. I hate the fact that you must have every app, regardless of whether you use it or not, on your homescreen. Also, other than the number of alerts from each app, there is no information whatsoever available to you unless you open the app or check the notification panel. Heck, even the weather app can't show you the current temperature without opening it. Android goes a step further by allowing you to place apps and widgets on the homescreens but I just don't see it at being nearly as cohesive as the Windows Phone OS.

The fact that you must have every app on your homescreen? And weather apps can't show the temperature without opening the app? What are you on, dude? At least go try a WP before coming up with idiotic rubbish like this. If you'd tried one you might change your mind a bit and you might not spread lies and nonsense like you do now.
