While rumours surrounding the Samsung Galaxy F (or Galaxy S5 Prime) are quite healthy and frequent, rumours regarding its HTC counterpart, the HTC One M8 Prime, appear to have tapered off completely. And based on an anonymous tip passed on to Phone Arena, that might be because the device has been cancelled. According to the tip, instead of the M8 Prime, a second HTC flagship will be released in the second half of the year bearing a 5.2-inch display, aimed at replacing last year’s HTC One Max. The tip doesn’t stop there, though, also saying that the HTC Nexus 8 that we have been expecting won’t be making an appearance at Google I/O next week.
While many of us were expecting the follow-up to Google and LG’s 7-inch tablet to be announced at Google I/O, the tip has said that the HTC-manufactured device will be released at a later date at another event. That kind of takes the wind out of what we expected from Google I/O, but that looks to make Android Wear and its hardware partners the prime focus of the event.
