We’re all eagerly awaiting the arrival of HTC’s next flagship device, rumored to be called the HTC One+(M8), or at least some of us are. While we patiently wait for HTC to officially announce this successor to the HTC One, it looks as though a variant of the next flagship in question, has just been approved by the group in Indonesia that is responsible for certifying all devices that are associated with telecommunications. The device is listed as being called the HTC M8x, and as of now there are no details about the actual device other than the different code name, so we’ll just have to go and assume that the specs are most likely the same, and that it’s just a variant for that particular region.
The M8x is not the only device listed on this certification, as one called the HTC D310w is listed as being approved by Postel as well. The D310w is rumored to be a device that will be marketed towards the low end of the spectrum, and rumored specs suggest that it will carry a mere 512MB of RAM, which is certainly nothing compared to most of today’s standard RAM offerings. The device is also thought to be a handset meant for the Chinese market, so whether the specs are low or not shouldn’t matter to most of us who reside outside China. That is of course unless the phone does actually make it to other markets.
Since the M8x has shown up for Indonesian certification, could we possibly see HTC getting ready for some kind of announcement in the near future concerning their next phone? This is hardly evidence that they’ll do so, but it would sure be nice if that were the case. As we draw ever closer to MWC, perhaps we’ll hear from HTC on the device at that time. The M8 is rumored to come with HTC’s newest version of it’s Sense UI, along with the latest flavor of Android, 4.4 KitKat. It seems we’ll have to continue waiting for any official details about HTC’s new phone, but that doesn’t mean we can’t dream about its features in the meantime.
