It's been a long time since we've seen an HTC-made Windows Phone, but if the rumors are right, a new one will emerge, with a design you may know. HTC is said to soon be debuting a Windows Phone version of its One M8 Android flagship.
It would be in good company, too. HTC's past Windows Phone efforts played around with audio, color, camera, and size.
The 4.7-inch screen of 2011's HTC Titan seemed enormous at the time. Though it ran on a single-core processor, the metal device's design exuded luxury and its 8-megapixel camera took great shots.
The Titan's follow-up, the Titan II, emerged the following year with the same size screen and a camera that was incredibly ambitious for 2012, 16-megapixels.
The wacky Surround, which arrived in 2010, was one of HTC's first projects to amp audio. Its slide-out speakers nevertheless make the phone heavy and failed to deliver any aural epiphanies.
A more entry-level Windows Phone, 2011's HTC Trophy, as it was called with US carrier Verizon, had a 3.8-inch screen, which is shockingly small by today's standard.
One of HTC's best claims to fame has always been its stylish design elements. The Trophy, like some other HTC-made phones, turned its flourishes to the inside, coloring it red.
