Check out our review of the HTC One M8 smartphone.
HTC has told us to circle March 25 on our calendars, at which time it promises ‘The best will get better.’ What could it mean? Well, the event is almost certainly to announce HTC’s new flagship phone, currently known under the HTC M8 codename. The news comes via the official HTC UK Twitter account, and other sources are saying the company will hold joint events in New York and London on the day.
HTC’s follow-up to the One has been rumoured for several months, and may be named the HTC One Two, the HTC One+ or something else entirely. Its debut will come just over a year after the One’s launch, and the event’s late March date means the phone won’t be on display during Mobile World Congress. Although we’ll probably never know, HTC may have taken this decision to avoid clashing with Samsung’s big announcement, which is expected to be the Galaxy S5.
Samsung’s new flagship phone is sure to attract plenty of attention in Barcelona, and HTC is wise to avoid competing with it. It’ll only be a brief respite though, as the two phones will do battle in stores soon after the show ends.
HTC hasn’t shared any technical details concerning its new phone, but there has been plenty of speculation regarding it. The screen size may increase to 5-inches, although the resolution will probably remain at 1080p, and a quad-core processor, most likely the Snapdragon 800 will probably power the device. Leaked images seem to show a mysterious second camera lens on the phone’s rear panel, and reports suggest this new UltraPixel setup will improve quality and provide user definable depth of focus settings.
