The rumoured Windows Phone version of HTC's glorious HTC One model appears to be inching toward reality, with new leaks claiming it'll arrive with the same Dot View case option as the Android mobile and with version 8.1 of Microsoft's OS and the Cortana stuff inside it too.
The rumour comes via WP Central, which says the HTC One for Windows will indeed be announced at a New York press event on August 19, with Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 the OS powering the mobile. The alleged spec sheet for the WP HTC One says it'll run on a Snapdragon 801, with 2GB of RAM and a 5-inch display outputting at the full 1080p HD resolution.
The good news is there are no compromises compared with the Android model, with the WP variant of the HTC One also including the same UltraPixel camera and 5MP front-facing secondary cam. It could turn people, that. [WP Central via Techradar]
