Another HTC Accord render leaks, shows button/port layout

Yesterday we saw the first render of the supposed HTC Accord, an upcoming middle-band Windows Phone 8 device which will be part of the first wave of devices later this year. Now, the same XDA-Developers member Football has posted another render of the HTC Accord, and this time it shows exactly where the ports, buttons and other items are on the smartphone.

Most of this stuff was already pretty obvious from the last image, but at least the evidence surrounding the HTC Accord is mounting. Rumored specs for the device include a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 dual-core chipset clocked at 1.5 GHz, 1 GB of RAM plus 8/16 GB of storage, a 4.3-inch Super LCD 2 display at 1280 x 720, an 8-megapixel rear camera with 1080p video recording, NFC, microSD card support and possibly LTE as well. Beats Audio is also supposed to be included.

We should be seeing more of this device, alongside the other two devices HTC has planned (the "Zenith" and "Rio") at an event in the third week of September.

I would love to see more apps on WP now... I am especially waiting a dropbox app. And a s8mp camera as standard. I just got myself a S3, after using HTC radar for almost an year and I must say that I am overwhelmed with the amount of apps and am loving it. The only thing I am mIssIng is the neat tiles and how contacts were shows.

I think I'm going to go with this over Lumia. Wow, someone finally figured out to put USB connector at bottom. smh. bout time.

You guys forgot to add in the part about all the USB ports being on the bottom it seems. Does the Ativ S have it's port on the bottom as well? I forgot to actually check, anyways, if it does it seems MS is asking OEMs to all have it in the same location so they can then do 3rd party add-on devices etc that work on any device.

How is this a render?

A drawing which has been coloured in can be classed as a render. Rendering is not confined to computing, or 3D computing.

He has a point though, people would expect a 'render' to be a 3D image. This is just a picture.

But it hasn't been coloured in. They just copied and pasted a screenshot of WP8 and pasted it on top of a line drawing with grey fill.

It's coloured in if it is going to be grey

I'd say it's more a schematic than a render.

yezzir. This is a blueprint of a phone.

lol. There's a big difference between a blueprint and a simple diagram/figure pointing to a few features.
