As the day gets closer, the more leaks we get from this new HTC Windows Phone. We’ve seen the render leaked, and information about it leaked as well from @evleaks, bandwidth documentation leaked, some teasing from both Microsoft and HTC. So, with this phone having the same specification and pretty much, same everything of the Android M8, the DotView case must be a part of the phone. Well, today we got more information about the DotView case and what it can do with the “M8 for Windows.”
WP Cenral has obtained “exact details about the features” of the device, and it seems to be a solid device. The phone will run on Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1. It features a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801, 32GB of built-in storage (expandable up to 128GB), 2gb of RAM, 5-inch 1080p display protected by Gorilla Glass 3, HTC Ultra Pixels Camera, 5MP front-facer. It also has HTC’s Boomsound, U-Focus and DotView case compatibility. Powers the phone will be a 2600 mAh battery
So, let’s break that down, hardware wise, it is quite standard for flagship of this year. It is also confirmed by this leaked info that we will get the Ultra Pixel camera instead of the cheap 13 megapixel camera. Without the standard of having a hardware camera key, sadly, the One M8 for Windows will not have a hardware camera key. Boomsound, what we come to love of HTC is still here, with top of the line audio output.
Software wise, HTC includes U-Focus, similar to Nokia Refocus for Lumia line, but this will allow users to refocus the picture afterward, instead of having to use the app from the beginning like Nokia Refocus. For the DotView Case, the case will allow user to use some of the functions of the phone, like pickup phone call by the case, as well as some Cortana integration, explained by the source:
“This case lets you see who’s calling, then answer or decline the call without opening it. Just swipe to answer or simply put it to your ear. It also shows you the date, time, weather and reminders. You can also instantly access Cortana by simply swiping down.”
That is it, it is quite similar to the DotView Case is quite similar to what we have already come to know from the Android M8, and it seems to be quite compelling. The device is set to be revealed on August 19th, and launch the sale in August 21st, according to some rumors
So, anyone is waiting for this “HTC One M8 for Windows?” Tell me!
