HTC One 2 mock-up allegedly based on specs from insider
The resin mock-up shows the BoomSound speakers on the front of the phone, and on the back there apparently is an opening for a double flash. The rear camera is tipped to remain a 4 UltraPixel snapper while the front-facing camera will weigh in at 2.1MP. 16GB of native storage will be on board with a microSD slot available. We could see a 32GB variant of the phone, as well. Android 4.4 will be pre-installed out of the box.
One published report on Wednesday suggests that we will see the HTC One 2 (or whatever it will be named) introduced at MWC 2014 in Barcelona next February.

Yes, fail with UltraPixel camera. Their 8 MPs are way better than this scrappy camera. Please HTC remove that UP gimmick but sadly I think they ain't gonna remove that thing.
BTW the resin mockup is looking like a soap.

They won't remove it, they will improve it. I hope.

The HTC One design was class apart. I don't know why they keep comparing it to iphones. It does not look anything like an iphone.

I think that clay model looks exacxtly like Moto X/G. Front is HTC One with deeper speakers.

Oh don't put a 4MP Ultrablurry camera on your flagship anymore, HTC! Better increase to 8MP or go for Exmor RS, unless you want another big disappointed sale

No, it's not. The Ultrapixel camera only helps a bit in low-light conditions. I won't say it's bad, but it's average.

A quick glance at most of my friends' posted pictures on instagram are all indoors. HTC One always wins out in those circumstances. Outdoors, not so much, but then, it seems like by numbers, indoor pics > outdoor pics.

from what i know most of indoors pictures on instagram are close up and i'm sure even some low end phones with 5mp + flash is good enough for that.
For me 8MP with 1.4 micron, f2.0 lens, dual led/xenon flash and 3 axis OIS on Lumia 925/928 is much more better than cappy ultrapixel on HTC One.

UltraPixel is great, but UltraPixel with mere 4MP is just too idealistic.
29. xperiance (Posts: 44; Member since: 22 Oct 2013)
No.....because no major oem is going to release a full hd smartphone as flagship in 2014(eventhough its useless) and sticking to the same ultrapixel will a huge mistake

What's the use of UHD when no one can differentiate between FHD and UHD? the only thing it causes is more battery consumption and a higher price.
PPi war is the most ridiculous one.

Maybe you won't be able to see the difference between QHD and Full HD, like others may not see a difference between a DVD or a Blu-ray, or even between streaming HD or a Blu-ray, but that doesn't mean others won't.
Saying that no one can see the difference between the two based on your visual experience is not an accurate point to make. Battery life on these WQHD phones will be similar to the 2K/1080p phones, they will appropriately increase the battery. Just look at the difference between the S3 and the S4, similar increase in specs, and look at how much better the S4 performs even with the increased resolution.

Even if there is not much difference, no one is ready to buy a flagship phone will a premium price tag having an hd display next year...
40. emadshiny (Posts: 1084; Member since: 05 Dec 2012)
I never talked about HD. I said there is no difference between FHD and UHD in terms of small screens like mobile phones.

It will not come with a 16gb variant. It will be 32 and 64. Again.
10. Alan01 (Posts: 151; Member since: 21 Mar 2012)
Not according to the source...could be that the expected microSD slot makes HTC feel that they can get away with 16GB...remember, it was Verizon that kept the microSD slot off the HTC DROID DNA

What a stupid model, its totally fake.
How can the bottom speaker be bigger than the upper one ?
22. apple4never (Posts: 755; Member since: 08 May 2013)
the bottom speaker can be bigger by simply increasing the size, no fancy quantum physics here

Most stupid flagship name. HTC One 2 ? Come on it couldn't get more uglier than that

Disappointing camera rumors. I love the design of the HTC One, so I'm not complaining if they bring something similar, but I hope they invest in better battery technology.

Yet the mockup still has more functionality ;)
19. amats69 (Posts: 827; Member since: 12 Nov 2012)
Not a final specs..so im still hoping htc will improve the camera section of the phone plus bigger battery...i would love if they keep the one's design
24. Taters (Posts: 2361; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
Gapful design, dust under the screen, dead pixels, uneven Sim tray slots, and rough trim around the USB port part 2? Geez, I can't wait for that.....
34. Taters (Posts: 2361; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
One GS4 exploding because of carelessness hardly equals every single one of the HTC Ones in Vancouver having at least one or sometimes two or even more of the problems I listed.....suck t c fans like you are quite delusional and are drawn to champion loser companies like suck t c.
44. amats69 (Posts: 827; Member since: 12 Nov 2012)
Lol dude youre a certified HTC hater..so even if htc releases a perfect phone for everyone you will still not appreciate it and you will still posting the same old comments bashing htc and praising your beloved samsung....hating is what haters always do so im not surprised anymore...and oh wait paid students also does hating on htc.hahaha
37. newbey123 (Posts: 309; Member since: 19 Mar 2012)
Have to love those exploding s4 with their defective screens. Lol!
45. amats69 (Posts: 827; Member since: 12 Nov 2012)
Not only defective screens! But also the weak and laggy touchwiz...oh wait samsung exec said that..lol

the bigger question here is: who the hell bought the white iphone 5C?
30. JMartin22 (Posts: 642; Member since: 30 Apr 2013)
This thing is looking severely outdated already. Even the design language they'll probably stick to looks like yesteryear as well. They're not going to get the same bandwagon hype or even the same sales as last year, I'm willing to wager.
38. Altair (Posts: 294; Member since: 02 Feb 2012)
Laugh. HTC is clearly copying iPhone. This is nothing new though. They have been doing that for years already. WTF is wrong with those OEM:s... Samsung and HTC, stop copying and stealing!
HTC - Silently Stealing

In fact,apple too is copying from others in a stealthy way. Most people don't notice it.
