Does HTC have a new mid-range handset on the way?
According to the latest speculation, the HTC A50AML is apparently a new mid-range handset that is being developed using the code name CM650. There will be two versions of the handset, one being a premium version of the device. The HTC A50AML will be powered by the MediaTek MT6752 processor, which is a true octa-core chip. The handset features 2GB of RAM with 16GB of native storage inside.

The camera on back weighs in at 13MP. Depending on where you live, the front-facing camera will either match the shooter on back (13MP) or will be the 4MP Ultrapixel camera that was featured on the back of the HTC One (M7) and the HTC One (M8). Android 5.0 will be powering this handset.

HTC has announced that it will be holding an event on April 8th featuring a slogan that says, "More than One." Will we see HTC roll out this rumored mid ranger at the event? It is a possibility. But the HTC phone that most want to see introduced is the HTC One M9+. This should come with a 5.2-inch 1440 x 2560 resolution screen, a MediaTek chipset, 3GB of RAM, a 20MP rear camera and a 4MP Ultrapixel selfie shooter in front.

HTC needs to regain some of the momentum that has been snatched up by Samsung. The event taking place on April 8th can go a long way toward helping HTC upstage its rival. But for that to happen, it must take to the stage with a  premium device like the HTC One M9+. And while the A50AML mid-range model might find favor among certain buyers, it's the top shelf models like the One M9+ that ultimately grab the public's attention.

I have had an M7 and 4 M8s in my accounts.. and to see how the M9 is going to be sooo much alike the old phones and how they still have part of their control buttons popping up on the screen itself instead of being touch sensitive. I think I will PASS!!
