HTC is working on a flagship Windows Phone 8.1 handset based on HTC One (M8), according to several reports. Earlier this month @evleaks said the HTC’s W8 Windows Phone handset would feature BoomSound and Duo cameras, similar to the HTC One (M8). According the Engadget’s sources, the device is expected to be called “One (M8) for Windows”. It also says that it would feature voice over LTE, but it is likely to be enabled by Windows Phone 8.1 GDR1 update.

As reported earlier this week, the WP 8.1 update 1 would also bring support for smart covers like the HTC Dot View case in the Windows Phone. It would come in silver color, but is not clear if the smartphone would feature similar design and specifications as the One (M8).

According to Engadget, the upcoming HTC W8 Windows Phone 8 handset expected to launch on Verizon during this third quarter of 2014, but WPCentral says that it would be unveiled on August 20th and launch on the 21st. It also says that it would be priced at US$610 off-contract and would cost about US$199 on contract.
