A previous report suggested that HTC was prepping to release three new Windows Phone 8 devices in October, the Zenith, Accord and Rio. To date there hasn’t been any images of these devices surface online, but new details have potentially risen this morning. According to WPDang, HTC will beholding a media event in both New York and London sometime during the third week of September (17th – 24th) to announce their upcoming Windows Phone 8 devices.

The Zenith, Accord and Rio all come with various specs (see here), but the flagship Zenith will be the star player and have a quad-core processor, 4.7-inch 720p Super LCD 2 display (300ppi), and an 8MP camera.

HTC, along with Samsung, Huawei and Nokia will be the first manufacturers to launch Windows Phone 8 devices. It’s also rumoured that Nokia will announce their new Windows Phone devices on September 5th and have a 1-month WP8 exclusivity.

    So, to do with my Lumia 900 which can’t run Windows 8? Paperweight?…projectile?…doorstop?

      Sell while its still its worth something before it arrives in walmart discount bins for 99 dolla on the prepay

      Same thing people did with their gingerbread devices when ICS came out: either continue using it or replace it. It’s not as if it stops working the day WP8 is released.

    They can announce all they want, it’s when you can put your $ down and get one in your pocket that matters. It took forever to get Lumia Phones – both after announcements and release!

    As a fan of HTC hardware, this is great news.

    with industry leader samsung and a hungry htc on the scene nokia is in trouble, one month exclusivity is just not enough for a company that went all-in with microsoft
