As we’re approaching the beginning of next year, where CES 2014 and MWC 2014 will bring us a cornucopia of new phones, the rumors are intensifying regarding the so-called HTC M8, the follow-up to the HTC One. We’ve recently seen the alleged back cover of the device and we’ve heard chatter about Sense 6.0 being on top of Android.
@evleaks is trying to cautiously predict the HTC M8 specs: “sounds like the HTC M8 is — and you could probably predict — a 5-inch, 1080p handset powered by KitKat and a Snapdragon 800”, he says. While there is no certainty that these will actually be the specs of the phone, it does make sense for HTC to use the 800 SoC. Actually, we expected this chipset to power the HTC One Max already. KitKat, next year, is, of course, a must; as for the five-inch display, it would be a step-up from the HTC One (and would bring the M8 closer to its competitor, the S4, and, next year, the S5). 1080p resolution is here to stay, at least for a flagship in 2014.
