The internet has been rife with questions over a potential HTC One for Windows phone - Is it true, is it not true? How will it even work? - so we decided to compile a list of the top rumours and try decipher what the mystery thing will actually consist of. Here goes...

The One (M8) for Windows will thankfully be shortened a much more easy-to-pronounce W8, and will keep the same key features of its predecessor, such as the BoomSound speakers and depth-sensing Duo Camera, as well as identical hardware specifications. However, voice over LTE is expected to be added, as well as a Windows Phone 8.1 operating system. Expected for release during the third quarter (some sources suggest it will be be launched specifically on the 21st), for $610 at full price on Verizon or $199 on contract. It doesn’t look like there’s any major changes to the handset apart from its operating system and VoLTE, so you’re better off sticking with your current phone option unless you’re an avid Windows fan, right? Right? Hello? Windows fans? Are you still there?
