HTC Windows Phone 8 devices specifications leaked

It didn’t take long for HTC’s upcoming Windows Phone 8 roadmap to leak just one day after the official unveiling of the new platform. According to the Verge’s sources the Taiwanese manufacturer is planning to launch 3 handsets before the end of the year: HTC Rio, HTC Accord and HTC Zenith. Each model will target a specific price point thanks to the new HW chassis flexibility provided to OEMs with WP8. Check out the specification after the break.

HTC Zenith

    Thanks for the news, you’re the only website talking about these 3 phones. The HTC accord seems to be interesting, will it be compatible with the 3G+ high speed and not only 3G+? I think it is linked to the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor but I don’t know its characteristics.
    Thanks again for your good job about WP8, that was much more interesting on your website than on many others!
