There’s such a point of view that Nokia isn’t the only friend of Windows Phone 8. The Verge claims to have obtained interesting information on the subject from some reliable sources. The Taiwan-based company is about to launch three lines of smartphones supporting Microsoft’s new mobile operating system. Though such lines as Accord, Rio and Zenith are somewhat similar to cheap vehicles dressed up with quite sexy names, but they feature precious bonuses under the hood.
The Verge’s source states that Zenith is expected to be the high-end line, featuring a Super LCD 4.7-inch display, NFC support, quad-core processor and an 8-megapixel HSPA+ camera capable of taking 1080p at 42Mbps. As for the midrange Accord cell phones, they’ve got a tiny 4.3-inch screen and boast dual-core chips. The lowest rung exhibits the Rio line having a 4-inch WVGA display, a 5 megapixel camera, 14.4 Mbps HSPA, 720p capture and a Snapdragon S4 chip.
Both the Rio and Accord are likely to become available to customers in October, while Zenith will probably come out later by the final quarter of this year. Certainly this report seems to be uncertain and even suspicious, so it makes sense to delay working out a purchasing plan for this stuff until things become clear. On the other hand, this information sounds quite believable, though customers should keep in mind that it’s a sort of second-hand, and therefore due to a number of reasons everything may change or even get canceled. Anyway it wouldn’t be surprising to see both Zenith and Accord in anybody’s holiday wish list.
