HTC Windows Phone 8 handsets leak

Windows Phone 8 has only just been officially unveiled, but leaks have already sprung from HTC's camp.

After the manufacturer confirmed it would be releasing handsets on Microsoft's slick new OS, the HTC Zenith, Accord and Rio were leaked by an unnamed source (are there any other sorts?) to The Verge – and they sound mighty like the Windows-powered versions of HTC's One series.

Zenith is the flagship of the trio, sporting a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, 4.7-inch 720p Super LCD2 display, eight-megapixel camera with 1080p video and extra-fast HSPA+ internet. The One X, basically.

Then we have the middle child, or One S doppelganger, the Accord, which packs a 4.3-inch 720p Super LCD2 screen, dual-core processor, eight-megapixel camera with 1080p video, plus 1GB of RAM and NFC support.

Rounding off the trio is the Rio, with a four-inch WVGA screen, five-megapixel camera wtih 720p video recording and likely a Qualcomm MSM8227 processor, clock speed unspecified. But if it were to fall in line with the One V, that just could be a single-core 1GHz chip.

With Windows Phone 8 launching in October, The Verge also claims that the HTC Accord and HTC Rio will be out by then, with the Zenith landing by year end. Of course, they won't be called these names – what new series will HTC invent for its next-gen Windows Phone line?
