According to information from @evleaks, which has a very good track record in providing reliable leaks, is saying that the HTC M7 is going to hit the market as the HTC One; there is no word on what name the Taiwan based manufacturer plans on using with the two other handsets that it plans on launching around the same time...

I really want this phone but I'm just not sure how the S4 Pro is going to stack up against Exynos 5 Octa. Such a shame that the s800 chips won't be released until Q2. That's the only factor that makes this a toss up with the SGSIV. :S

The Htc one series has been very good for the most part all except the one s which has been plagued with faults and problems

Andro. Not just the One s, the one x was riddled with problems too.

it should be called the One X2, with the number 2 being an exponent. The gs1 wasn't successful either so building on the One X is definitely the best strategy.

although HTC already screwed it up by making it bigger than One X while retaining the same screen size.

The GS1 wasn't successful? Are you kidding? It may not have done the numbers of the S2 or S3, but it was one of the best selling Android phones of its time. I wouldn't be surprised if the only Android phone to do more up until that point was the original Motorola Droid.

I thought M7 was a pretty cool name. Pretty big reason as to why I personally was interested in the phone

HTC can use two brand HTC One and a HTC M (being a special phone).

Or they can get like Sammy and release a killer phone that's not altered for Any carrier. Even though I feel the HTC evo 4g lte craped on the one x.

That's where the M series plays its major role, similar to the Nexus brand cross carriers.

HTC has too many "One"s. One X, One S, One XL, One V...so will this just be THE One?

So much for "there can only be one"... :p

Just give a User Removable Battery and Expandable memory and everyone will be ready to buy HTC phones. Thats the only thing which keeps most people buying HTC phones.
High price-removable battery-SDcard slot= HTC

You guys are so shallow and lack vision.
HTC One 2?
HTC One xx?

First name is absolute idiocy because it basically tells you 1 2.
The second name means absolutely nothing and is generic as s**t. What is M for? What is 7 for? Also, there were tons of phones with the same designation already!
The third name is a peak of retardation. What would be the successor's name? One xxx?

One is a perfect designation for something that should be a top product of the line.
It tells a message - this is The One of our line. Our prime. The alpha and omega.
Our first and leading phone. Our best.

And on second thought, I take back my alphabet suggestion.
Just One is enough. It is the very essence of the identity definition.

Ideally, each year people would just expect a new One without even a need for separate designation.
An icon product doesn't need it.

Also, if the successor needs to have a new designation, then the alphabet can be used. One B, One C, One D etc.
Like the starship Enterprise A, B, C, D, E ...:p

All this would be great if they never named a phone One X, One V or One S already. They have a One series.....but the naming suggest this will be older.

Droid X
Droid X2

You can tell which one came first, and which one was the latest. Now that I think about it....Moto's new phone is rumored to be called the X. Motorola X so far. I have a feeling thats gonna change. If not....Moto and HTC need to hire ppl to help them name phones.

Htc one is a very good name for the companies next flagship phone. People will say that it is the one true phone!

HTC One X 2(exponent) meaning HTC One X squared is the perfect name. One it keeps the One branding for some much needed continuous branding. Two, easy to name a sequel, you can call the next one One X to the power of 3 or cubed but just use the tiny 3 to keep the title short. Three, you can market One X squared easily by saying it is not just a One X sequel, it is the One X times the One X meaning it is a generational leap forward, in title at least.

On second thought, I have an even better and more truthful and accurate name. Ready..

Introducing the HTC rape me Apple and take my profits please!

HTC One is retarded because the One X sounds like the higher end model judging by the title. It would confuse Americans too easily. I wouldn't put it past HTC though, they are dumb enough to give Apple money for something they never invented.

If you remember correctly, they shouted "M7, M7, M7" and then "One, One, One, One". So, in my opinion, we could have already predicted such a thing.

By the way, if they call the phone HTC One, and nex year HTC One 2 and so on, they would be doing something just like Samsung and Apple do, so I don't get how you people in here are saying they "somehow" joined the dark side...

I love my One X, but they should have called this something else IMO.

This is good news. No need to introduce a new series into the mix. the HTC One X is no a bad device at all, although it didn't sale better then Samsung's GSIII the two devices stack up pretty well in the performance department. Plus all the other phones in the series did there job well too. The most common complaint about the One X was it's lack of a SD card slot. The One X is a powerful and beautiful phone and it deserves another generation. I don't know whats wrong with calling it the "HTC Two". I believe that's the most strait forward name for easily confused customers. Simply calling it the HTC One could understandably confuse some people but, I would hope people would take the time to know more about the phone they're buying then just the name.

well M7 name really suits htc's upcoming phone. then why to rethink a new name. like htc one. there is no point in this htc. rather m7 name sounds very attractive and A JAMES BOND TYPE. so its better to call it with its real name. nyways good luck for this device, its gna b rocking we all know that.

HTC is rolling down hill slowly. They better not f**k up this "One" or they're done. The GS IV is coming soon so this "One" better have something extraordinary besides 1080p screen. As we can all see, HTC as an example, being the first to innovate doesn't necessarily mean becoming "the first." And besides, company can put 1080p on a screen.
