Leaked : Specs Of HTC Tiara, First Windows Phone 8 GDR 2 Device
According to a fresh leak, HTC plans to expand its Windows Phone 8 lineup with a new handset, which is bound to sit between the Windows Phone 8X and the Windows Phone 8S when it comes into being. Dubbed internally as HTC Tiara, the smartphone will be one of the first to the market with Windows Phone 8 GDR2 – the second major overhaul of the OS after the recent “Portico” update.
Listed along with “Windows Phone 8 GDR2” as the OS are additional leaked specifications dug up by Unwired View and EVLeaks that put this phone in the mid-range category.
Components include a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, 4.3-inch Super WVGA LCD2 display, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage and a 1800mAh battery.
These rumored HTC Tiara specifications line up almost perfectly with the company’s mid-range, Android-powered HTC One SV smartphone. The only exception is that the WP8 version has a slightly superior 8MP rear-facing camera over the One SV’s 5MP camera.
No word on what the device will look like, but UnwiredView claims it will be similar in style and features to the HTC One SV.
Details on Windows Phone 8 GDR2 are scarce, but it is believed to be a pretty big refinement over the first version. The HTC Tiara is expected to land in mid-May.
EvLeaks has proved to a solid source for mobile leaks. It has most recently pinned the launch and specs of the HTC One and new Lumia handsets correctly.
Currently, the Taiwanese manufacturer is working hard to promote the HTC One Android flagship.
