When it comes to Android smartphones, HTC has been one of the dominant manufacturers for a number of years. Some of the most highly regarded Android phones have been made by the Taiwan based manufacturer, with the vast majority of its sales owed to the Google owned operating system. However, the company has also released several devices with Microsoft's Windows Phone operating system in the past, like the HTC 8X and 8S.

According to Tech Radar, HTC may be in the process of developing a new high-end Windows Phone. Interestingly, the website reports that the as yet unannounced device may have the same design and styling as its flagship HTC One. With millions of sales and widespread critical acclaim, the HTC One has been one of the most successful smartphone models of the year. Perhaps its standout feature is its stylish aluminium chassis, which makes it arguably the most stylish smartphone model currently available. Such a casing has not been used on a Windows Phone device before, so it could be just what HTC needs to compete with the likes of Nokia, which remains a dominant force when it comes to the Windows Phone operating system.

Tech Radar further reports that the phone will borrow a number of other attributes from the HTC One, such as Beats Audio and an Ultrapixel camera, which has proven to be one of the most capable camera modules of any smartphone model on the market. While HTC is yet to officially comment on the existence of this phone, Tech Radar reports that its source has claimed the phone will be announced in the autumn, released in time for the Christmas period.

Because HTC has been widely reported to have lost much of its market share to rival manufacturers in recent years, a Windows Phone handset with the same aluminium chassis as the HTC One could be a huge hit, so we will follow this story with interest and report back with the latest updates.
