Specifications for HTC’s rumoured premium phablet, the so-called HTC One M8 Prime, appear to have been leaked onto the internet.
Now one Japanese HTC fan website is claiming to have obtained specification details for the forthcoming phone - though we’re taking them with a hefty pinch of salt until we hear from another source.
HTCSoku claims to have obtained these specifications from a leaked terminal code. They refer to a device that’s been granted the name "M8_Prime."
Apparently, as per our speculation, the M8 Prime will indeed feature a 2K QHD display - and a chunky 5.5-inch example at that. It will also pack a more powerful Snapdragon 805 CPU, which will be backed by 3GB of RAM.
But the most interesting spec here, and the one that makes us a little wary of trusting the source, is the camera. Sure enough, the main UltraPixel camera will receive a boost from the HTC One M8’s 4-megapixel example to a 5-megapixel unit. That’s wholly believable.
However, the secondary camera, which is used for those natty depth adjustment features, will apparently be a whopping 18-megapixel unit. By way of a reminder, the original M8’s secondary camera was a 2-megapixel example.
That seems like a huge and somewhat unnecessary lurch forward for what is essentially a gimmick. It’s a neat gimmick, but still.
We’ll let you know just as soon as we have a piece of corroborating evidence - or otherwise.
