List of upcoming Windows Phone 8 devices from HTC, Nokia, Samsung and Huawei revealed


A user on Reddit posted on the website the list of Windows Phone 8 handsets that will be launched in the timeframe of June, July and August. The list comprises handsets from Nokia, HTC, Samsung and Huawei.

According to the poster, HTC will launch two of their HTC Tiara handsets, one of which will be LTE-enabled. HTC Tiara has already been rumored to launch on Sprint without any reports on whether it will be Sprint-exclusive or will also launch on other carriers and global markets.

For the Nokia, we know that they will be launching one of their Lumia handsets on May 14th. Two of the Lumia devices have been reported to be coming this year dubbed as Catwalk and EOS. If Nokia announces Catwalk, aka, Lumia 925/928 then they may launch the Nokia EOS later, which is rumored to feature Nokia 808 PureView camera.

The Reddit poster mentioned Samsung launching Chronus, an aluminium-chassis Windows 8 notebook. It is believed that the poster mistaken Chronus as a notebook instead of a Windows Phone 8 device.

Lastly, Huawei is rumored to launch a Windows Phone 8 version of their Ascend D2 Android phone featuring a 5-inch Full HD display dubbed as Ascend WQ 5. The handset will feature the same 13-megapixel camera as in Ascend D2.

Out of these Windows Phone 8 handset, we hardly heard anything about Samsung’s new line of Windows Phone 8 devices, as the report hints that the Korean handset-maker is moving away from the ATIV line of WP8 smartphones. We will know more about all these devices once they are unveiled or we receive new set of leaks for any of these handsets.
