Complete specs leak for the HTC O2: 6-inch QHD screen, SD-820, 4GB RAM and IP certification?
posted by Alan F. / Aug 19, 2015, 2:32 AM
The HTC O2 will employ the Snapdragon 820 chipset, which will feature a quad-core CPU (carrying four custom Hydra cores) with the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside, along with 64GB/128GB of internal storage. A 20.7MP rear-facing camera adorns the back, and a 5MP snapper up front handles selfies and video chats. The very un-HTC like 3500mAh battery will keep the lights on for a long time, and the front panel will be narrow with thin side bezels. Speaking of the front, it sounds like the BoomSound front-facing stereo speakers will return. There is also talk that the device will have an IP certification with protection against dust and water.
The report goes on to say that a 5-inch version of the HTC O2 will be launched next year, sporting a 2K or 4K (!) resolution. A more powerful Snapdragon 82X chipset will power the handset, with an octa-core 3.X GHz CPU. The remaining specs should match what is alleged to be on this year's 6-inch version of the phone.
In terms of design, the report says that the O2 and the HTC One series do not deviate from each other by that much. We are looking forward to seeing some more details about the handset soon.
Thanks for the tip!

This is really surprising that HTC is still floating around, how many times already have we said "this is the last chance for them"? It was M7, than M8 and M9. Now this will be really their last chance, because M7 and 8 were doing good on market, M9 is a total disaster and I doubt HTC will survive more disastrous models next year.

Optimistic at best, I'd grab this phone if it would have a big camera with OIS, fingerprint scanner, and fast wireless charging, and I hope HTC will surprise us with new neat and intuitive features that would make people grab them like hotcakes, oh and don't forget great marketing strategy.

Whatever handset HTC brings to the market, I just hope that they get it right with the camera this time. The Toshiba sensor on the M9 didn't cut it for them so opting for either a Sony or a Samsung sensor would be a step in the right direction.

Htc make 5.2 inch device with fhd display and the same specs . It will be a true beast!

Agreed, 1440p with a 6" display is the wrong move. 5.2" with 1080p would be perfect.

the article says it'll be available in a 5" version ... 5.2"-5.7" is so competitive, I think going smaller and bigger than that range is a smart decision. they need to make a premium phone at a reasonable price. they'll get slaughtered by Apple/Samsung if they try competing with them and their $20 billion (with a b) marketing budget.

i just hope that HTC will make it this time, I do love their phones aside from other manufacturer..build quality is excellent for me, I don't have any problem not having a removable battery besides u can always carry around a power bank if battery is the concern., I don't think it will explode if u use it while charging I think thats a rare case. user interface is great really smooth., there is no need to add gimmicky specs that will just bloat up the system,i think they just need to reduce the price a little bit to survive.

Nothing surprising here. Standard specs for a 2016 high-end flagship device. QHD screen, SD820, 4GB RAM and Sony 20 MP camera. The main difference between 2016 flagships will be design, camera quality and battery life.

6 inch display with boom sound speakers and HTC's pedigree of being the worse company at miniaturizing? Bwahahahaha this thing is going to be epic! It's going to be comically large. The Xperia Z ultra all over again.

I think budget section is the key. and they have ignored it time and time again. i still think a budget phone with decent specs may still work for them. But i am afraid they wont.

We're currently working on this 6.5 inch QHD screen 0.4 inch thick smartphone, which will include SD 830 (like) chipset, 512 GB storage, SD card option, removable 6,000 mAh battery, 0.2 inch protruded 41MP camera - with physical camera button of course and various attachable lenses (not included in the box), attachable slide-out physical QWERTY keyboard and a pair of extra durable audiophile earphones to go with (included in the box). Main goal is superb all aluminum no crapglassback pre-2000' silver+black design with no resemblence to Iphone, but some resemblance to: 1) vintage Sony Walkmanhttps://upload.wikimedia.org/w
ikipedia/commons/e/e2/Sony_Wal , 2) silver Nokia N8 and E7 and their WH-701 earphones, 3) Sony Vaio VGN CR19xn/bhttp://www.speci.hu/images/ani kman_-_FM-AM,_Auto_Reverse_with_Megabass _-01.JPG mation-cr.gif , ... Supposed to be used as portable computer, too... We've had enough of waiting for such device, reading news of these non-inovative upgrades from various smartphone brands, therefore we've decided to make it ourselves and finish it by the end of next year.
