HTC One 2 mock-up allegedly based on specs from insider
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. If HTC decides to go with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 CPU, we could see 4K video from the device.

The resin mock-up shows the BoomSound speakers on the front of the phone, and on the back there apparently is an opening for a double flash. The rear camera is tipped to remain a 4 UltraPixel snapper while the front-facing camera will weigh in at 2.1MP. 16GB of native storage will be on board with a microSD slot available. We could see a 32GB variant of the phone, as well. Android 4.4 will be pre-installed out of the box.

One published report on Wednesday suggests that we will see the HTC One 2 (or whatever it will be named) introduced at MWC 2014 in Barcelona next February.

Laugh. HTC is clearly copying iPhone. This is nothing new though. They have been doing that for years already. WTF is wrong with those OEM:s... Samsung and HTC, stop copying and stealing! HTC - Silently Stealing

In fact,apple too is copying from others in a stealthy way. Most people don't notice it.

This thing is looking severely outdated already. Even the design language they'll probably stick to looks like yesteryear as well. They're not going to get the same bandwagon hype or even the same sales as last year, I'm willing to wager.

Gapful design, dust under the screen, dead pixels, uneven Sim tray slots, and rough trim around the USB port part 2? Geez, I can't wait for that.....

One GS4 exploding because of carelessness hardly equals every single one of the HTC Ones in Vancouver having at least one or sometimes two or even more of the problems I listed.....suck t c fans like you are quite delusional and are drawn to champion loser companies like suck t c.

Yet the mockup still has more functionality ;)

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.

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

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 Alan F.

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.
