HTC M8 to be named HTC One+ at launch, new details and specs leak
HTC is getting ready to introduce the world to its next flagship smartphone. New details and specs have leaked regarding the HTC M8, the HTC One's successor.
2013 was the year that HTC showed the world why it used to design devices for companies like Palm and HP. When the company announced the HTC One at MWC 2013, the smartphone stole the show and won many awards. The handset was very high-end and premium-feeling due to the seamless anodized aluminum unibody case HTC used. The company is widely expected to show off the HTC One's successor at MWC 2014 in February. We've already heard a few details about the smartphone and some new ones have just leaked.
According to Android Revolution, sources have told the site that the HTC M8 will take on the moniker 'HTC One+' as its official name. It will reportedly have a 5-inch Full HD 1080p display covered by Gorilla Glass 3 protection and will use the latest quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, although it was previously reported to use the 800 series. It will also have 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM, which should improve performance, and will ship with Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box with HTC Sense running on top of it.
Its camera capabilities will supposedly include an 8- or 6-megapixel HTC UltaPixel rear camera with a double lens and enhanced imaging software, as well as a 2.1-megapixel front facing camera for video chat or selfies. The source claims that the HTC One+ will not use capacitive buttons, but will instead use on-screen buttons like many current Android smartphones. The handset will also reportedly ship with a microSD expansion slot, a feature that many reviewers and customers have requested for the flagship.
The HTC One+ is also said to ship with a much larger battery than the HTC One's 2,300 mAh non-removable battery. The smartphone will reportedly include a very large 2,900 mAh battery that will certainly give you a couple of days of battery life with normal use.
As always, however, it's best to take reports of unannounced devices with a grain of salt. We'll be sure to keep an eye on the purported HTC One+ and bring you all the latest news.
