HTC Accord Windows Phone 8 device image/specs leaked

So this morning not only have we seen some leaked images of the Nokia Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 with PureView technology, but now we've also got some information on one of HTC's upcoming Windows Phone 8 devices. It was previously revealed that HTC could be initially launching three Windows Phones around the launch of WP8: the low-end "Rio", the mid-range "Accord" and high-end "Zenith" - today's leak from XDA-Developers' member Football deals with the middle-band HTC Accord.

Apart from what appears to be a render of the device which you can see above (looks somewhat similar to a Nokia Lumia smartphone), the Accord also packs some decent specs. Allegedly this phone will see a 4.3-inch Super LCD 2 display at 1280 x 720, 8-megapixel rear camera with 1080p video capture, NFC, microSD card support and one of Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 dual-core chipsets at 1.5 GHz; the same chipset used in some US variants of popular phones like the HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S III.

Previous leaks mentioned the Accord might have an MSM8260A chipset inside, which only differs to the MSM8960 in that it doesn't include CDMA or LTE radios, so naturally this would mean the Accord will support LTE. We also know that the device will most likely have 1 GB of RAM, and internal storage will be either 8 GB or 16 GB. The fact that this leak correlates to two previous leaks (in June and August) on the Accord definitely gives it some credibility.

The render does show a Windows Phone 7 homescreen at the moment, but obviously any future Windows Phones will be undoubtedly be powered by Windows Phone 8. HTC is said to be officially announcing the aforementioned three Windows Phone 8 devices at an event in late September.

Do they spell it "Calender" in other countries (Non-US) or is that a typo?

Good catch! Given that the other words are in standard English, I'd have to say this render is a fake!

Leave it to the Americans to bastardize english.

Considering that we spell it 'Calendar' I would say to not leave it to us...

Finally, an updated design from HTC rather than spitting out the same HD2 reference design. Even though this one has some similarities to the Lumia I concede that could just be because of the bright colour in this image, anyway looks like were going to have a good bit of choice with WP8 in terms of designs and manufacturers.

looks very good... I can see apple having a very THOUGH time on next iteration of iphone... MS just bought a lot of nails to plant itself as a major mobile player
So glad it did it!

What is the arrows icon on the calendar?

it indicates that there are more appointments on that day which can't be shown on the live tile - kinda weird, because i'm pretty sure that the live tile is capable of cycling through stuff.

Actually, I believe it means there's a scheduling conflict for the event.

wrong. that's the standard outlook symbol of a schedule conflict.
