HTC's Windows Phone 8 roadmap unveiled - Three new devices coming ( Zenith , Rio and Accord )

The statements of CEO Peter Chou on the arrival of the new Windows Phone 8 smartphones by the end of the year quickly followed the first rumors about the composition consisting of line-up . According to recent rumors the range  HTC Windows Phone 8 devices may be formed of three models: Zenith, the top end of the range,Accord,medium-high end smartphones, and close to the line-up, Rio , the model medium-low. 
The models name is a code and, as often happens, it will change with the commercial version of the device. 
Recalling that the information that we bring to those not yet final, we move immediately to examine the alleged technical specifications of each model after the break.
Zenith as, in advance, will be the top of the range of 8 to HTC Windows Phone. The specifications would include:
  • Display 4.7 "SuperLCD 2 720p
  • Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon (unspecified)
  • 8 Megapixel Camera
  • Connectivity 42 Mbps HSPA +
Close behind are the Accord, the model of a medium-high, characterized by:
  • Display 4.3 "LCD Super 2 720p
  • Dual-core processor Qualcom MSM8260a (likely because of variation)
  • 1 GB of RAM
  • 8 megapixel camera with support for 1080p video
  • Connectivity 42 Mbps HSPA +
  • NFC support
Close the Accord is Rio which is mid to low end device ,which specifications could include:
  • Display: 4 "WVGA
  • Processor Qualcomm MSM8227 (given susceptible of variation)
  • 512 MB of RAM
  • HSPA 14.4Mbps
  • 5 megapixel camera with support for video in 720p
The line-up in the complex is consistent with the approach used by HTC's recent production of the line terminals Android HTC One. The relationship between Zenith and Accord are modeled in some way those between HTC and HTC X One One D: same camera, different form factor, quad-core devices for high-end dual-core to medium-high. The Rio would have a positioning similar to that of HTC One V.
Deliveries of all three devices are expected by year end: Rio and Accord may be submitted in October , while the top of the range the term was generally identified in the ' last quarter of 2012 . Obviously the exact launch date of the three smartphone will be confirmed in the coming months and will be closely linked to the development of the platform Windows Phone 8.
