After rumours broke of HTC working on not one but two new and advanced models of their HTC One M8 comes another rumour saying those devices have been suspended indefinitely!!!!
The rumour comes from the uber reputable source @evleaks. Here’s his exact tweet:
If you were salty at having purchased an HTC One (M8) when news of the M8 Prime hit, prepare to feel vindicated: development on Prime has been suspended indefinitely.
Unfortunately @evleaks was not able to provide any details as to why HTC may have suspended the project but according to him, that is the case. Again, this is a rumour so take it with the right amount of salt but keep in mind that HTC never publicly acknowledged these devices so they were in the rumour bin to begin with anyway.
If the likes of LG and Samsung do indeed launch premium models of their flagship devices it would be a bad move on HTC’s part not to join in, especially if the device is already developed. HTC (and most Android manufacturers for that matter) are playing catch up a little it so they need to try keep up with Samsung.
