We have some news regarding the HTC One M8. For quite some time now, rumors about a Windows Phone powered high end HTC phone have been making rounds. Now, according to evleaks, we could see the One M8 loaded with Windows Phone as early as September this year. According to the report, the device is codenamed W8 and will maintain the dual camera setup and front Boomspeakers found on the Android version. What’s more, the phone could also feature voice over LTE, that’s not available on Android yet.
With talks about Nokia Mclaren getting cancelled, this comes as an important news, since Windows Phone needs a hero device going into the holiday season. Given the critical acclaim HTC One M8 has garnered, a Windows Phone version of the phone could help the ecosystem.
In other news, HTC hasn’t forgotten the Android version of the One M8. The company is seeding Android 4.4.3 update for the phone across Europe. The update takes the software version to 2.22.401.4 and weighs a hefty 613MB in size. The update brings improvements to mobile network, WiFi and Bluetooth. It also brings the security patches from Android 4.4.4. With the update, HTC has also tweaked Sense a little and the camera, the image gallery, the settings menu, as well as HTC Sync Manager apps have also been updated.
