It's the end of the line for the HTC One on Canada's Bell

It's the end of the line for the HTC One and others on Canada's Bell
If all of those leaked stories about the HTC M8, aka the HTC One 2, don't convince you that HTC's new flagship phone will soon be here, perhaps this story will. According to a leaked internal document, the HTC One is EOL at Canada's Bell. That means it is the 'end of life' for the phone on the carrier. The only reason to EOL HTC's flagship Android model would be that the phone's sequel is coming soon.

It hasn't even been a year that Bell customers have had the opportunity to purchase the well-designed handset, which indeed was named one of our Best Designed Products for 2013. Earlier Monday, master leaker evleaks tweeted the information that the HTC M8 looks "strikingly like" the M7 (HTC One). That happens to confirm an earlier story from December that revealed that a mock up of the M8 based on inside knowledge of the model, looked almost exactly like the HTC One. The Taiwan manufacturer is apparently living by the old saw "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

Based on the leak, other phones on Bell's EOL list include the Sony Xperia Z1 in white, and the 16GB Samsung Galaxy S III in blue. Those two appear to be EOL based on the particular color of each handset. While the Galaxy S III has been supplanted by the Samsung Galaxy S4, the Sony Xperia Z1 is still a relatively new handset having been launched for the Canadian carrier in October.
