Washington: It seemed that the 2014 edition of HTC One is a bit larger than the previous generation. Aside from an odd, off-colour ring around the larger back camera sensor, the design of the back matches earlier leaked images, HTC M8 is reported to be released on 25 March.
The HTC One went on sale for about £500 when it launched last year, so this price is a little higher than expected although not ludicrous enough to be totally unbelievable.
According to other Technology Related Website pricing the phone at £579.99, however the validity of this pricing is unfounded beyond the claims of the site itself
HTC M8 is reported to be released on Mar. 25 and will pack new features such as dual camera, Kitkat OS and fingerprint sensor. It was heavily rumoured that the next generation of HTC One will pack two cameras at the back. According to Digital Spy, the same camera unit was spotted at the Qualcomm’s booth at the Mobile World Congress.
HTC was already rolling out the latest Android OS update to previous HTC handsets. Thus, it is most likely HTC’s new handset will pack the new operating system from Google – Android 4.4.2 Kitkat OS. Lastly, HTC One Max already packed a fingerprint sensor. There is a big chance that HTC M8 will pack the same technology but improve its features.
Samsung Galaxy S5 is considered as HTC M8’s biggest rival. Samsung’s flagship phone was announced last Feb. 24 at MWC. However, even before its announcement, HTC took a stab on S5. In its tweet ahead the S5 launch, HTC said that consumers who decided to buy Samsung Galaxy S5 will have a buyer’s remorse on Mar. 25. Moreover, the tweet has a hashtag of #HTCOneUp, which suggested that the handset will be named HTC M8. It was previously reported that HTC M8 will be named HTC ONE+ or All New HTC One.
