HTC has been on the ropes for the past few years, but they started taking measures to better their situation with the release of the HTC One. The One was simply a magnificent device that was just released at the wrong time, causing it to be overshadowed by more popular handset franchises from Sony and Samsung. Despite this however it was if anything, a window to what HTC is capable of. The successor to HTC's One device has just passed through the Wifi certification, meaning the device is on its way. Hopefully HTC can find a unique solution to launching the phone among a crowded sea of devices this time around and regain some ground in the market.
The HTC m8, or One 2 as its rumored to be named(no official name for the device has been confirmed yet) is starting to shape up to be just as impressive as the One, or so we could hope. The One had a nice sleek design with a full seamless metal body that captivated consumers, and it was nice to see something that was out of the ordinary for a change. The One 2 may or may not follow in the same footsteps when it comes to the body design, that remains uncertain. We do however know the specs of the device internally thanks to Android Police and the Wifi certification that the phone recently went through.
The HTC One 2 will come with a 5 inch 1920×1080 screen. 5 inches seems to be a nice middle ground for devices these days, as its not too big and not too small. It's just right. Besides the display, it will come packed with a Snapdragon processor that clocks in at 2.3GHz, an Adreno 330 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage space and it will come pre-installed with Android 4.4 kit kat. We have yet to learn what sort of display type the One 2 will come with, and we still know nothing about the battery which is important depending on the type of display. The two go hand in hand somewhat as the display type could have a huge effect on battery life.
Hopefully we'll learn more about the M8/One 2 in the coming weeks, and as soon as we do we'll be sure to post our findings for all of you. Who's interested in HTC's follow up to the One?
