It is rumoured that HTC will  launch two high-end Windows tablets after Microsoft has rolled out its ‘Blue’ operating system update. The Taiwanese is preparing the 7-inch R7 and the 12-inch R12 for launch later this year, according to PhoneArena‘s sources.


The R7 will reportedly boast a full HD, 1080p display and run off a powerful 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and 2GB of RAM.

A 13-megapixel camera, 16GB of internal memory, microSD support, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity and a 4G LTE radio are also rumoured.

HTC’s larger R12 device is said to feature the same core specs with additional connectivity options and a super high-resolution 2048 x 1536 display capable of rivalling Apple’s latest iPad.

Both tablets have been tipped for release in October, with Microsoft’s Windows Blue update expected before the end of the year.
