The much anticipated successor of HTC One strikes again with another leak. This time it’s not from an analyst or any third party supplier, but directly from the company. Codenamed as HTC M8, it appears in a User Agent Profile coming straight from the HTC website.
The User Agent Profile doesn’t list too many specs about the upcoming phone, but gave an official confirmation about the screen resolution. As the official source confirms it, all the previous rumors and predictions are now completely redundant.
The report confirms HTC M8 to sport 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution. According to previous reports, the next flagship device from HTC would offer 2K (2560 x 1440 pixels) or QHD resolution.
In addition to this, an interesting detail about the phone was also revealed from the User Agent Profile. According to the profile the M8 won’t have any physical buttons on its body. This means HTC might be planning to have virtual buttons unlike its previous flagship device. These buttons would resemble to that found on the Nexus line of devices, the LG G2, many Xperia smartphones and others.
These are the only details mentioned in the user profile, and that’s why they are granted as official. Rounding up all the reports till date, we know that the next flagship device from HTC will be HTC One’s successor called as HTC One+ or HTC One 2.
It will be powered by MSM8974 chipset – the same Snapdragon 800 found in the LG Nexus 5, LG G2, Nokia Lumia 1520 and others. The screen is reported to be 5-inch with 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution.
HTC might again consider using the same Ultrapixel unit for the rear camera with no word on the exact resolution. No word on whether the device will feature a fingerprint scanner like the HTC One Max, but chances seem high.
HTC might announce M8 at Mobile World Congress 2014, which is happening next month at Barcelona.
