When HTC announces its 4.3-inch Accord with Windows Phone 8 next week, it’ll come packed with Beats Audio. Not exactly surprising, though HTC’s relationship with the audio company was put under the microscope after the handset maker sold some of its stake in Beats back. But rest assured, you can expect the partnership to continue, at least for the foreseeable future.
Sources told The Verge that HTC plans to include Beats in a number of Windows Phone 8 devices — such as the Zenith and Rio — in order to help the company differentiate itself from the competition. HTC has a two-day extravaganza slated for Sept. 5-6, so we’ll find out exactly what the company has planned then.
