Although it isn’t expected to be released until spring 2014, the rumours surrounding the HTC M8 are coming in thick and fast, with the device’s specs the latest leak.
Currently codenamed the HTC M8, the alleged 2014 HTC flagship will come with a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and Adreno 330 graphics.
The HTC M8 may well have the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 processor, which is due to be included in premium smartphones from the “first half of 2014”.
It will have a 5-inch Full 1,920 x 1,080p HD resolution screen, larger than the Full HD 4.7-inch display of the HTC One.
The camera offerings will match that of the HTC One, with a 4-megapixel UltraPixel camera in the rear and a 2.1-megapixel option in front.
The HTC M8 will come with Android 4.4 KitKat pre-installed and we expect it will feature a new HTC Sense 6 UI, building on the latest HTC Sense 5.5 released with the HTC One Max.
According to the benchmarks, the HTC M8 will come with 16GB of internal storage as standard.
Earlier this month, twitter-based serial tipster @evleaks also suggested the HTC M8 will be a 5-inch, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 affair, which further supports the AnTuTu leaks.
The HTC M8 pictures that leaked early in November suggested the HTC One 2 may come with a fingerprint scanner situated above the rear camera. It could also ditch the popular zero-gap aluminium unibody design.
HTC is expected to launch the successor to the HTC One in Q1 2014, with an event tipped for February.
Of course, HTC M8 is bound to be just a codename. The HTC One was called the HTC M7 before it was officially announced.
