Last week we told you that HTC is working on HTC One M8 Windows Phone edition and we might witness a new windows phone from HTC carrying the design of HTC One M8 Android version. Well, it was not a rumour as the press image on the Verizon website confirms it. So, we might expect HTC One M8 Windows Phone releasing exclusively for Verizon later this month. This is indeed an exciting news especially for the Verizon customers as they will be the first ones to get their hands on this device. However, it will be launched Internationally as well but Verizon customers will be the first ones getting HTC One M8 Windows Phone.
If we compare the Windows Phone version with the Android version, it can be seen that the two devices look identical with a slight difference in the Boom sound speaker grills. The windows phone version of HTC One M8 will also come out with 5MP front facing camera. However, it is not clear yet if it will have a 4 ultrapixel primary camera or HTC will shift back to megapixels. And if HTC opts for megapixels instead of ultrapixels then it would definitely be because of the poor response they have received for the new camera technology which failed to impress people.
HTC One M8 Windows Phone will come out with Windows Phone 8.1 GDR1 so it is expected that HTC will sell the dot view case for the device as accessory. We have seen HTC already testing out its dot view case on the HTC One M8. So, there are strong chances that HTC will also market its accessories as well.
HTC is all set for its New York event which is scheduled for 19th August. They have even sent out the invitations and we might see the official announcement for this new windows device in the New York event. However, there are reports that HTC One M8 Windows Phone will be officially announced for Verizon on 21st August.
