HTC One 2 launch confirmed for March 25

The HTC One M8 will be announced on March 25 based on event invitations sent out today.

Teasing the upcoming phone via Twitter, the Taiwanese smartphone maker has told followers to ‘Save the Date’ while attaching an image addressing an upcoming event on Tuesday, March 25.

Although the HTC One 2 is not referenced directly in the tweet, HTC’s formal invite sent to TrustedReviews inadvertently confirms the subject of the launch, with the invite attachment entitled “Portrait M8 Invite” – the phone’s formal codename.

This means the HTC One 2 will be anncounced one month after next Monday’s expected Samsung Galaxy S5 launch. Recent HTC One 2 rumours have claimed the phone will sport a brushed metal body markedly similar to last year’s HTC One just with a number of core improvements.

While the HTC One 2 specs sheet has been tipped to see a 5-inch, 1080p Full HD display introduced, further reports have claimed the handset will benefit from a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM and Google’s latest Android 4.4 KitKat OS.

What’s more, according to leaked HTC One 2 pictures, the phone will include a second camera sensor on the phone’s rear, reportedly designed to improve focus times and light metering.
