Washington: As we are just few weeks away to enter into the next year, Taiwanese technological giant HTC is planning to make an early impact in the smartphone market with its upcoming device HTC M8.
Just like HTC One Max the smartphone have been leaked on numerous occasions, but now new leaked specs indicate that the device will feature huge 5 inch Full HD display.
HTC had a hit on its hands when it introduced the world to the HTC One at Mobile World Congress 2013. The smartphone took home awards at the conference and showed that the company decided to pay extra attention to the design of the handset.
It used an anodized aluminum unibody case to house the HTC One; the design was very reminiscent of Apple’s attention to detail and something that would allow HTC to once again compete with companies such as Apple and Samsung.
Several recent leaks claimed that the company was already testing the HTC One’s successor. HTC had codenamed the HTC One the “M7″ before it launched the smartphone with the official HTC One name we’ve all come to know. Its successor has reportedly been codenamed the “M8″ and is expected to be officially announced at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014 in February in Barcelona, Spain, just as its successor debuted at MWC 2013.
The reliable @evleaks took to Twitter and revealed some of the HTC M8′s specs. The tipster claims that the M8 will ship with a 5-inch 1080p Full HD display, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, and would run the latest Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box.
While those specs sound impressive now, the smartphone isn’t expected to be announced until the end of February 2014. There are quite a number of smartphones currently on the market already using the same internals, minus Android 4.4 KitKat.
The smartphone world is already moving on to more powerful 64-bit processors, such Apple’s A7, which can be found in the iPhone 5S. Samsung has also announced that it has started working on its own 64-bit processor that will likely see its debut in the Galaxy S5 next year.
If HTC wants to see repeat the success of the HTC One with the M8, it might want to rethink using a processor that will be more on par with 2014 powerhouses. Since nothing is official, we can file this in the rumor category for now.
