This is the HTC Accord, HTC’s upcoming mid-market Windows Phone 8 smartphone

As is the custom with every new Microsoft mobile OS launch, HTC is also preparing their own Windows Phone 8 offerings. The picture above is a render done by XDA-Developers member Football for the HTC Accord from an HTC ROM. The Accord will supposedly have a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, along with a 4.3-inch display with 720×1280 resolution. The 8-megapixel camera on-board will be able to capture 1080p video, and the device will supposedly support NFC when it launches. While the device is still sporting Windows Phone 7 in this particular render, sources say that this device will run on Windows Phone 8 when it is launched.
