HTC One 2 specs revealed by leaked sales guide

A near full HTC One M8 (originally known as the HTC One 2) specs list has been detailed in a leaked sales guide.

Following the leaked advertisement detailing some of the HTC One 2’s camera features earlier this week, the specs have been revealed by an internal sales brochue.

GSMArena has managed to get its hands on a sales guide explaining the key features of the HTC One successor and how best to sell them to consumers.

Confirming previous leaks, the sales brochure states that the HTC One 2 will have a 5-inch full 1080p HD display running on a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor. There’s no mention of RAM in the guide, but previous leaks put it at 2GB.

It will seemingly be powered by a 2,600mAh battery and feature 16GB of internal storage bolstered by a microSD card slot, which is something that was missing from the original.

Although the sales guide makes no mention of a camera resolution, it does confirm that the device will ship with the HTC Duo dual-sensor rear camera. The main, lower and larger sensor on the rear will come with a 1/3.0-inch sensor with an f/2.0 aperture and 2-UltraPixel pixel size.

These specs match the HTC One, so we assume the resolution will be the same 4-megapixel UltraPixel.

Unlike other 2014 flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2, it seems the HTC One 2 will only be capable of capturing full 1080p HD video rather than 4K.

What is interesting is that it seems HTC has opted to give the front-facing camera a significant update as well. The original HTC One offered a 2.1-megapixel front camera, but the codename HTC M8 will feature a 5-megapixel option.

Thanks to the larger 5-inch display, the HTC One 2 will be slightly longer and wider than the original model with measurements of 146.36 x 70.6 x 9.35mm. It’ll also be .5mm thicker than the original, but we doubt you’ll notice.

It will also be quite a lot heavier than the original due to its new hardware additions, weighing in a 160g in comparison to the 143g original HTC One.

Keeping the same "ultrapixel" camera as the original HTC one? The camera was pathetic the first time, and they didn't upgrade it this time? The company deserves to go bankrupt with decisions like this.

This phone with the Galaxy S5 camera = winner. I don't know what to buy now... Back to square one.

Better than I expected. I thought htc was starting to slack, but great updates. I think the double camera and ultrapixel is pretty good. Especially the 5mp front camera. Still need to improve battery more. Can't wait for it.

Oops, disappointed again, it looks like HTC will be a thing of the past on 2015.

Omg.. the ultra pixel camera of the Htc One was better than Nokia lumia 1020 camera so please...

Another Samsung plastic toy fan boy has spoken.

What if it's the same type of camera with better hardware and software to help it make it better than it was before? I mean the secondary camera will aid with making sure shots on fuzzy. It will also be able to add depth to the photo, giving 2D images a more real life look.

But if course this is just speculation. I say you wait and see how the camera is. I'm content with the camera. I don't see the *bad* you mention. Though when it comes to cropping, yes. Though I don't crop my photos, so I'm glad they opted for low light over that. Low light visibility is what I want more. Not a 10MB photo.
