Components include a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, 4.3-inch Super WVGA LCD2 display, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage and a 1800mAh battery. According to the source of the news, which comes via Unwired View, the handset will be the first to ship with GDR2 Windows Phone 8 and will have a spec which sits between the company’s existing HTC 8X flagship and HTC 8S mid-range model, both of which are proving some of the most popular Windows Phone 8 devices in terms of sales. Not much is known about the GDR2 update, but it’s not expected to be a substantial change. The current word is that Microsoft is planning a series of these GDR updates as small patches in the run up to Windows ‘Blue’ within the next 6-8 months.
