HTC M8 to be called “The All New One”?
Despite multiple leaks and rumours about the HTC One successor, the retail name of the smartphone is still a big mystery. Now, @evleaks is reporting that the phone might be dubbed as “The All New One.” While there is no way to authenticate @evleaks’ claims but considering his track record, we are inclined to believe.
Further, @evleaks notes that “The All New One” will be released in Grey, Silver and Gold colour versions. He has also shared a promo render of the smartphone (see above), which show the phone in a cover, probably an official accessory.
To remind you, HTC on Tuesday confirmed that it is going to announce its next flagship smartphone on March 25, 2014. The company is hosting simultaneous press events in New York and London to unveil the device.
As per rumours, “The All New One” will come with a 5-inch full HD 1920x1080p display, 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, and 2GB of RAM. The phone will also feature two Ultrapixel rear cameras, 5MP front shooter and Android 4.4.2 KitKat with HTC Sense 6.0.
There is no word on the battery and connectivity front, but we can expect to see the usual connectivity options like NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, and 4G LTE.
