HTC Corporation is reportedly working on a Windows Phone 8 smartphone that will feature the same design language of its current flagship device HTC One, claimed a new report by Neowin.

The website citing sources said HTC is developing a Windows Phone running device that looks similar to the HTC One but not "completely identical" to it.

The Windows Phone device is expected to come with a display measuring around 4-5 inches and feature an aluminum body casing. It is also speculated that the handset will feature Beats Audio enhancements along with HTC UltraPixel camera.

The Beats Audio enhancement is used in the company's high-end smartphone line-up such as HTC 8X and HTC One, while the HTC UltraPixel camera is used its flagship HTC One.

Furthermore, the Windows Phone version of HTC One will get GDR3 (General Distribution Release) update, which is rumored to bring support for 1080p display and quad-core processor on Windows Phone 8 operating system.

However, if the device is expected to come with GDR3 update, than it is clear that the rumoured device will feature pretty impressive specs and will make its debut sometime later this year.

HTC One, which was first launched in February in New York City, is crafted with distinct zero-gap aluminum uni-body design and sports a gorgeous 4.7-inch full HD display with pixel density of 468 ppi. It is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor with 1.7 GHz clock speed paired with 2GB of RAM and operates on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) operating system along with a completely renovated HTC Sense user interface.

The smartphone comes in two storage options - 32GB and 64GB. The device has no expandable storage and is available in silver and black variants. On the connectivity front, it includes LTE (Long-Term Evolution), Near field Communication (NFC), Wi-Fi 802.11 a/ac/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and micro USB.
