Together with the Samsung Galaxy S5 the HTC M8 is likely one of the most predicted smartphones of the primary 1/2 of the 12 months. Whereas we’ve already heard about lots of the S5 specs and even bought a confirmation for its launch, the details about the HTC One successor are shallow.
Courtesy of @evleaks, we get a new round of HTC M8 reports. The well-known leaker told us in one of his recent Twitter posts that the HTC M8 (which is the code name for the HTC One follow-up) might be introduced by the Tawainese phone maker late March, during an event in New York.
@evleaks also tweeted about the design of the HTC M8. In keeping with him, who is nearly a hundred% correct in terms of reporting about HTC, the M8 “appears to be like strikingly just like the M7 [HTC One],” which isn’t completely dangerous information provide that, for my part, the HTC One as the very best-taking a look smartphone launched in 2013.
Let’s get again to HTC M8′s liberate date and liberate position. Why March? Why New York Metropolis? Neatly, we’re ninety nine% certain that Samsung will introduce the Galaxy S5 later this month at MWC 2013 and HTC is for sure no longer looking to offer Samsung a head begin. Even supposing the S5 will likely be presented in February, it is going to no longer be launched available on the market unless late March – early April. Or at the least that’s what a Samsung exec stated a final month at CES. So, the HTC M8 and the Galaxy S5 might hit the market in the identical time.
New York is to me the most effective location to launch a smartphone in. The town is with regards to the headquarters of many large media retailers, so the usage of it to launch your smartphone would assure nice protection.
Rumor has it that the HTC M8 will percent a fingerprint scanner which isn’t stunning, making an allowance for that the One Max additionally had one hooked up on its again. It’s additionally rumored that it would arrive with a quite greater display with 1080p decision and, most probably, a Snapdragon 805 processor. Likelihood is, the HTC M8 will run Android four.four with new Experience 6 UI.
