HTC One (M8) for Windows goes official with Duo camera

After the popularity of the One M8, HTC has decided not to stop at just that. Bringing multiple models for the same phone sounds familiar right? But this is something that Samsung would do. However, considering how much people liked the HTC One M8, it seems legit that there must be another model. So this new phone we are talking about is the HTC One W8. Wondering what the ‘W’ here stands for? Well, it is for Windows. Everything about the phone is the same as before including the name and the design but this new model incorporates a new OS – the Windows Phone 8.1. Apart from this operating system, the phone is the same as the Android HTC One M8.

There wasn’t much hype surrounding this phone though we did receive a couple of leaks earlier on but the phone goes official today and is already available for purchase online. It is going to hit the stores tomorrow and you are advised to clearly state that you want the Windows version because you surely don’t want to end up with the wrong device. Let’s go over the specifications once again to remind you everything the HTC One is. To begin with, the phone sports a 5" 1080p screen which is wrapped in an aluminum unibody and is flanked by BoomSound front-facing speakers. It wont be wrong to say that the phone is composed of all our favorite parts taken out of the Android domain.

Moving on to the internal aspects of the phone, the phone will be powered by a Snapdragon 801 chipset which makes the phone the fastest WP8.1 device yet; the one only slightly closer to this is the Lumia 930 which is based on Snapdragon 800. The phone packs inside 2 GB worth of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage which is expandable by a microSD card slot. HTC has ported over the unique Duo camera setup that uses a 4MP UltraPixel camera and an additional camera for depth-measurements and special effects. You can record 1080p video with HDR from the main camera of the phone and the 5 MP front shooter is pretty impressive too.

We have already heard of the Cortana digital assistant for the phone but the HTC One M8 for Windows is also equipped with a trademark One feature, BlinkFeed. This app is basically a combination news reader and social networking app. The phone is currently only available through Verizon which means that you are going to get CDMA connectivity (but also regular GSM 2G/3G for roaming) and 4G LTE. The phone also has other features including dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac with Miracast, Bluetooth 4.0 with apt-X, NFC and a microUSB.
