What we know about the HTC M8
It's not the most exciting tidbit we've learned about the HTC One successor, but it's another piece of the puzzle we'll take.
So far, we've heard the M8 will come with a punchier 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor paired with the Qualcomm Adreno 330 GPU and 2GB of RAM. Less verified rumors suggest HTC was looking to boost the M8 to an octa-core processor and 3GB of RAM.
On top of this, the screen may be a solid 5-inches with the same 1920 x 1080 resolution. The whole machine is believed to land with Android 4.4 KitKat.
As for its exoskeleton, we at TechRadar posit the phone will look relatively the same as its predecessor, and be constructed with a metal body. Turn the phone around and HTC may pack the camera sensor with 10MP Ultapixels.
Those last few points are our own predictions, but it seems like the HTC One 2 is on course for reveal soon. Perhaps MWC 2014 will be its time to shine?
