Granted, assuming that HTC cancelled the M8 Prime, this doesn’t mean the company can’t work on another handset that shares its features. The M8 Prime was supposed to be waterproof, offering a 5.5-inch Quad HD (1,440 x 2,560) display, LTE-A Cat. 6, quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, and a Duo UltraPixel rear camera.
With LG announcing its Quad HD G3 earlier this week, it’s obvious that other smartphone makers will also want to introduce comparable devices in the near future. So we’d venture to guess that HTC is still going to launch a Quad HD handset, but apparently this won’t be the M8 Prime (seen below). In any case, we’ll see what happens later this year.

HTC CEOs know their competitors are much better.

If that's the case, they know nothing.

Good. There should be one flag ship phone per company per year. Not making a whole spectacle over one device, and then 3-4 months later release a premium version of the "flagship".

A company should release as many devices, cars, computers, shoes ,etc as as the market and demand tells them they should. The only people referring to certain devices as "flagships" are tech site commentors or people who have a psychological problem with "keeping up with the Joneses" and want the mental satisfaction of being able to say "I have the latest product from company x." Companies are in business to make money, not stroke the egos of a few insecure people. If you purchase a device, you need to be satisfied with your purchase rather than suffer anger or depression because a company comes out with a newer phone or car or anything else. Sony shouldn't worry about selling a "flagship" TV and then putting out another TV model as technology becomes available. For those who do easily get buyer's remorse, either make more money to buy more products, or sign up for Jump or Next. If companies support their products (such as one OEM updating 17 devices to 4.4), they shouldn't base their releases on whether some people's feelings are hurt. In capitalism, if you like it, buy it. If you don't like it, don't buy it. Your device will still make calls, receive emails, texts, and surf the web the same way it did yesterday before the "prime" version came out.

Yeah but the technology for the the HTC one m8 prime has been out, look at the lg g3 for example, it has a quad hd display so why couldn't the htc one m8 at the time? Why should we buy a phone if a better model comes out a couple months after? It just makes you feel like your phone is outdated. htc should put all their efforts into one phone and not into different models because they can.

They may be making spec changes because they know that by the time they release, there will be a number of devices already out with identical specs. They might want to overshoot them to be first to market with something new.
