HTC is cooking up a variant of the One (check out HTC One here) that Windows Phone 8-powered, if a report is to be believed.

The rumour comes to us courtesy of Neowin (check out site here). According to the site, “The device is reported to have a 4 to 5 in display - our source couldn’t get an accurate measurement on the screen size - along with a mostly metal body, Beats Audio, and the GDR3 update for Windows Phone, according to our source.  The One has a 4.7in display, but we are not sure if it is using the same screen for the Windows Phone device.

“The phone is expected to be announced in the fall and arrive sometime later in the year. It is believed, but not confirmed, that the phone will use HTC’s UltraPixel technology for the camera too.”

The site adds, “If true, knowing that the GDR3 update should land sometime later this year, we should expect to see the next wave of new Windows Phone devices to arrive around that time as well. GDR3 is expected to bring support for 1080p displays and quad-core processors on Windows Phone 8, so HTC's handset could feature some pretty impressive specs.”

Of course, since this is an unconfirmed report, treat it just like any other rumour for now.
