The upcoming HTC Desire 8's full specs have leaked before its MWC announcement and the smartphone is likely heading to AT&T and Sprint.

HTC has great plans when it takes the stage at Mobile World Congress next week. We already know the company will be launching its successor to its flagship HTC One with the HTC M8. The HTC M8 has an almost identical design to its predecessor but features upgraded internals, dual UltraPixel cameras, and a shiny aluminum case. The company also plans on announcing the mid-range HTC Desire 8, and the smartphone's full specs have now leaked, and it appears that the smartphone will be making its U.S. debut on AT&T and Sprint.

A new report from LlabTooFeR is listing what it claims to be the HTC Desire 8's final official specs. According to the site, the HTC Desire 8 will feature a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720. The handset will be powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor (MSM8926). When it comes to storage, users will have 8GB of internal storage and a microSD expansion slot that will support up to 64GB microSD cards.

The company will ship the HTC Desire 8 with Android 4.4.2 KitKat and an all-new version of HTC Sense 6.0. The handset's camera capabilities will include a 13-megapixel rear camera along with a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for video chat and selfies. Its wireless connectivity options consist of 4G LTE radio, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, and NFC. Just like the HTC M8, the Desire 8 will also feature on screen buttons. There will also be dual-SIM models for Asia.

The site also claims that the HTC Desire 8 has two versions for the U.S., specifically for AT&T and Sprint. The AT&T version is going by model number A5_UL - UMTS/LTE. The Sprint variant is going by the model number A5_CHL - CDMA/LTE.

While we pretty much know the final specs for the HTC Desire 8, we'll have to wait until HTC officially announces the smartphone next week at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014 in Barcelona. We'll be bringing you all the latest news, so stay tuned.
