The HTC One Windows Phone has taken a giant leap closer to becoming reality, as high-resolution press shots leak online.
Showing the aluminium smartphone in all its glory, the images give us our best look yet at the handset which marks HTC’s return to the Windows Phone platform, having not produced a phone carrying Microsoft’s software since the 8S and 8X in late 2012.

The handset is all but identical to the Android-running HTC One (M8) featuring the same brushed aluminium finish, Duo rear camera for shooting photos with blurred backgrounds, and dual Boom Sound speakers.
Previously leaked specifications claim the Windows Phone One - dubbed the One (W8) - will feature a 5-inch Full HD display protected by Gorilla Glass 3; it’ll be powered by the M8’s quad-core, 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 2GB of RAM; storage will be 32GB with a microSD slot for cards of up to 128GB.
It’ll be powered by the same 2,600mAh battery as the M8, and on the front you’ll find the same 5-megapixel camera for taking high quality selfies.
Running Windows Phone 8.1 means the One gets Cortana, Microsoft’s voice activated personal assistant and rival to Siri on the iPhone. Users will reportedly be able to activate Cortana while the Dot View case is closed.
HTC is believed to be announcing the Windows Phone One next week, so stay tuned.
