A Sprint HTC Windows Phone has been spotted in new FCC documents where it was identified as the P088100, fueling rumors that the handset will hit stores soon. Pictures of the upcoming HTC Windows Phone handset don’t appear in any of the new FCC documents. However, docs that state the device has CDMA and LTE radios pretty much confirm that the smartphone is coming to Sprint.
The FCC’s documents also reveal that the Sprint HTC Windows smartphone features an NFC chip as well as Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi support. However, there’s still no information regarding what kind of processor, cameras or display panel will be included with the handset.
HTC has already released two Windows Phone 8 devices. The HTC Windows Phone 8X (review), which launched in September 2012, is available on T-Mobile, Verizon and AT&T. It features a 4.3-inch LCD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera. The HTC Windows Phone 8S (hands-on) launched in December 2012. The entry-level handset features a 4-inch LCD display with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal flash and a 5-megapixel rear camera.
That said, it’s unclear what device HTC has planned for Sprint. We imagine it’s a totally new smartphone, though we haven’t seen any recent HTC Windows Phone leaks recently.
