Tweet: All four major U.S. carriers to get HTC's next flagship in Q1 of 2014

If you haven't pulled a Rip Van Winkle, you might recall that the current HTC flagship Android model, the HTC One, was originally codenamed the M7. Ironically, it was a tweet from evleaks that set the record straight. The most recent tweet from the serial leaker reveals that the HTC M8 (will it be called the HTC One Two?) will be available on all four major U.S. carriers and will launch at the end of the first quarter next year. That means we should see the phone around March 2014. Rumors call for the M8 to sport a screen around 5 inches in size, driven by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 3GB of RAM on board. Sense 6.0 will be installed.
The HTC One might have been a positive step for HTC and the manufacturer recently said that the device has been selling well, and that it is the low to mid range devices that are helping the company spill red ink. Not only will the M8 have to impress smartphone buyers around the world, it will need to be marketed properly, something that company Chairwoman and co-founder Cher Wang is now responsible for after taking that job away from CEO Peter Chou last month.

Yeah, it's a great move but they should keep the price, availability and updates properly and please no ultrapixel gimmick or atleast improve the camera because One was never outstanding in camera comparisons. One is brilliant except camera, they should also keep the camera brilliant in their next flagship(s).

great move by HTC but HTC needs to learns to use the best/latest specs on there phones. the camera is big downside to HTC phones. at lease htc should keep there camera quality like the rest of the competition

Great move. Just as important advice for HTC -Start with an UNCOMPROMISE phone -Aesthetic comes second. Remember you only have around 20% to make the phone look good as 80% is the screen itself. And yes, most people use a premium case. Your turn HTC, maybe HTC HD3 Android on Steroid???
