U.K. Judge reveals when the HTC M8 might launch in the region
The big news is that Judge Richard Arnold noted in his ruling that HTC will be launching a new phone in the U.K. in February or March. This is assumed to be the device codenamed the HTC M8, a sequel to the HTC One which was code named the HTC M7. The M8 is expected to be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU and be equipped with a 5 inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 2GB of RAM and a 4 UltraPixel rear camera.
The judge's comments about the M8 indicated that he felt that the new model would have a workaround so that it doesn't infringe on the Nokia patent and would not be affected by the injunction. Meanwhile, HTC argued that the infringing chips involved were just a small component and that a sales ban would be overkill. According to the ruling, between January and September HTC sold approximately 750,000 smartphones worth about 221 million pounds ($363 million USD) in the U.K.
