HTC One 2 tipped to be 5-inch Snapdragon 800 powerhouse

Luke Johnson



New HTC One M8 specs have leaked, with the upcoming flagship phone tipped to boast a 5-inch display and a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor.

With the HTC One having been one of the most popular handsets of 2013, bringing the Taiwanese handset manufacturer back to the fore, a direct follow-on has been mooted for an early 2014 arrival, with rumoured HTC One 2 specs now emerging.

Currently doing the rounds under the working title of the HTC M8 (the One was originally known as the M7), the HTC One 2 specs have hit the web courtesy of the Twitter-based serial tech tipster @evleaks.

A source reportedly on point with its leaks, rumours and predictions, a Tweet from the @evleaks account yesterday read: “Sounds like the HTC M8 is -- and you could probably predict -- a 5-inch, 1080p handset powered by KitKat and a Snapdragon 800.”

Although the rumoured HTC One 2 specs are a step up on the One’s current offerings, they don’t look set to move the upcoming handset ahead of the market’s current powerhouses.

Both the Google Nexus 5 and LG G2 are currently powered by a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor and feature 1080p Full HD displays around the 5-inch mark.

Recent HTC One 2 specs have tipped the handset for a pre-MWC 2014 unveiling, a move that would likely see the phone enter the realms of reality just weeks ahead of the heavily rumoured Samsung Galaxy S5.

Agree with you about the SD Card slot.! But seriously the Samsung S4 has been kicked in the teeth by the Sony Z1, Galaxy nexus 5 and the LG G2, why release a new phone with this years hardware. HTC going the way of blackberry anyone. With the rumours that the Galaxy S4 sales are lower than expected even Samsung is taking note about things such as the aluminium design vs the current plastic side. I'm not saying which is better just what most customer perceptions prefer. Hopefully the S5 doesn't have as may promised made then broken. Lauded Octa core processor at the keynote oh sorry you want LTE you get old Snapdragon 600 (800 was pretty much around I believe already) and oh sorry you want 32Gb or 64Gb or memory on your phone ugh sorry for you again.
