HTC might officially introduce the new device in February, but this remains to be confirmed. Until then, the latest bits of info regarding the HTC M8 come from @evleaks, and seem to reaffirm that the smartphone won’t be as exciting as other rumored high-end handsets expected to be unleashed in 2014.
As things stand now, it appears that the M8 / One 2 will feature a 5-inch 1080p display, Android 4.4 KitKat with Sense 6.0 UI, a 2.1MP front-facing camera, an UltraPixel camera on the back, 2GB of RAM, and a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM-8974 processor (apparently the 8974-AB model, if we’re to believe a previously leaked benchmark). All this doesn’t really make a strong impression - not when we’re looking at the features of the original HTC One, Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) flagships with 64-bit processors for 2014.
But perhaps HTC has some aces hidden up its sleeve? After all, a great smartphone doesn’t necessarily have to offer the highest display resolution, and neither a power-hungry processor. Who knows, maybe Sense 6.0 will be the best UI ever - and that could make the M8 a hit. What do you think, can HTC be successful with this new handset, even if its features are the ones rumored until now?
