July 29, mark that day in your calendars because that’s when Windows 10 comes out. While the basic package is priced $119, the release of this new software has brought about several rumors. One of these rumors involves the Taiwanese company HTC making a Windows 10 phone.
According to the website Softpedia, they think that Microsoft and HTC are partnering up for something special. “The phone manufacturer hasn’t said anything about any plans of dabbing into the Windows Phone market once again,” they said, “but there might be a possibility that HTC is indeed cooking up something but chose to keep it under wraps for the time being.” Well, despite the fact that they didn’t reveal anything at Computex 2015, they did mention that they were coming out with a new line of smartphones.
Website Phone Arena picked up on this during one of the company’s shareholder meetings. They said that “the company’s CEO spoke of a “new series” of smartphones in the pipeline during a meeting of shareholders, although whether this will entail as few scattered handsets or an entirely new product line remains to be seen.” Nothing points to a Windows 10 phone, but something was leaked concerning their new phone line. One of these phones was the HTC A50C, which according to another Phone Arena article, was “a phablet-sized phone with a 5.5-inch, 720 x 1280 pixel resolution display, an octa-core MediaTek MT6753T processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage.”
While it is possible for a Windows 10 phone to come out, it’s not known whether HTC will make it. The HTC A50C might have Windows 10 on it, although it’s too early to tell. At the same time, will having Windows 10 on a phone drive the price up for a smartphone? What are your thoughts on the possibility of HTC making a Windows 10 phone?
