It is not a secret that HTC is going through a financial crisis. The recently announced HTC One, which will go on sale next month, is believed to be the company’s chance to get out of its financial rut. There is no certainty, however, how the customers will take to the phone. If the ‘Plan A’ won’t not go as expected and the HTC One won’t success, the company has the ‘Plan B’, which should score quite a few customers – the company is planning to release a new Windows 8 handset internally known as the HTC Tiara.
HTC Tiara Windows 8 GDR2 Smartphone
The HTC Tiara itself sports mid-range specs but it is not important. What will make the Tiara stand out of the crowd is the Windows 8 GDR2 which is going to be the first update to the Windows 8 smartphones. Obviously, HTC wants to be the first to market a device for it. The smartphone resembles a recently-released Android handset – the HTC One SV. The phone will feature a 4.3-inch Super LCD2 with WVGA resolution at 217 ppi, an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 1.6 megapixel front-facing camera.
The handset will be powered by a dual-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon processor and will offer 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal memory and a 1800 mAh battery. Summing up, spec-wise, the HTC Tiara will fall somewhere between the 8S and 8X. If you want to be among the first people to sport the most up to date Windows phone handset, look for Tiara around mid-May, which is when the phone is expected to launch.
