The Verge has leaked HTCâ€™s Windows Phone 8 roadmap.
Claiming knowledgeable sources, they revealed 3 handsets:
TheÂ “Rio,” has a 4-inch WVGA display, 14.4Mbps HSPA, and a 5-megapixel camera with 720p video capture. There’s only 512MB on board, and the processor is a a Qualcomm MSM8227Â Snapdragon S4 Plus.
The next device is theÂ “Accord,” with a 4.3-inch 720p Super LCD 2, an 8-megapixel sensor with 1080p capture, 42Mbps HSPA+, NFC support, and 1GB of RAM atop a slightly beefier dual-core processor (tentatively an MSM8260A).
The last is the “Zenith” withÂ a 4.7-inch 720p Super LCD 2 with the same 8-megapixel sensor as the Accord, 42Mbps HSPA+, and an unnamed quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon.
The Rio and Accord is set to arrive in October and the Zenith before the end of the year.
Quad-core for Windows Phone? Maybe the critics will finally be silenced.
