A successor to the one of the best received HTC smartphones ever will be with us early next year, rumours suggest, as the phone-maker looks to capitalise on the HTC One’s success.
According to a Tweet from @evleaks, whose record with breaking device news is exemplary, the handset provisionally dubbed the HTC M8 will be available on "All four [US] carriers, end of Q1 '14”.
There’s no mention of the world outside the US will get the phone. But we imagine the smartphone will be given a simultaneous worldwide release, so it’s likely we’ll be on board at the same time as our chums over the Atlantic.
As is increasingly the norm, details of the HTC M8’s spec sheet have appeared extensively online in recent weeks, potentially leaving HTC with little to reveal when it does to come to market.
Highlights include a 5” screen (up from the One’s 4.7” number_ and Android 4.4 out of the box with the latest Sense 6.0 version of the phone-maker’s custom skin sitting pretty over the top.
Snatched images of the handset also suggest that it could be home to Touch ID-style fingerprint scanner and an upgraded version of the HTC One’s UltraPixel camera.
