HTC One 2 mock-up allegedly based on specs from insider

0. phoneArena 25 Dec 2013, 22:33 posted on

A 3D mock-up, made of resin, allegedly reveals what the HTC One 2 is going to look like. The specs, given to the person who created this mock-up from an insider, shows a device similar in looks to the HTC One, but with a larger 5 inch screen. With an expected 1080 x 1920 resolution, the screen's pixel density would drop slightly from the leading 468ppi seen on HTC's flagship Android model, to the 441ppi available on the Samsung Galaxy S4...

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.

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

The ultrapixel camera was amazing.

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.

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...

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.

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 ?

the bottom speaker can be bigger by simply increasing the size, no fancy quantum physics here

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.
