According to WP Central, Windows Phone might be ditching its dumpy 480×800 displays for new hi-res screens once WP8 hits.
WP Central piled onto the web analytics binge going around trying to dig up data about future Windows 8 devices right now, and in checking its own logs, found references to devices with 768×1280 resolution displays. Now, that’s the rumoured resolution for the 7-inch Google Nexus tablet. And we know Nokia is cranking out some kind of “hybrid mobile” device for Windows 8. But the LG Optimus TrueHD is 720×1280, and other phones are sitting around there as well, so the resolution itself isn’t that much of a stretch.
A Windows Phone rep at CES wouldn’t say whether WP would be bumping its specs all at once or gradually moving away from its unfragmented bubble, but he said “it was a total no brainer.” Which, you know, seems like maybe we’ll get a firehose full of upgraded standard specs for WP on the Windows 8 kernel. Or maybe not! Analytics extrapolations are notoriously random, so this could be one big false alarm. But hopefully not! [WP Central]
