HTC One is considered to be one of the best Android phones around, if not the best and it is hardly surprising then that reports are slowly surfacing about a sequel. According to a report on Pocket-lint, HTC is reportedly planning on unveiling an upgraded One sometime later this year and a flagship codenamed M8 in 2014.
HTC is currently planning on adding a series of software updates on the One and the updated flagship is also likely to include hardware increments. Though details are scarce at best, it is thought that HTC might replace the Snapdragon 600 on the One with a Snapdragon 800 processor. This move would be similar to what HTC did earlier with the HTC One X and the One X+.
On the new flagship front, the M8 moniker is a natural progression from the One, which was codenamed M7 before its launch. Not much information is available at the moment and the only thing we know is that the M8 is likely to include a bigger screen compared to the current-generation One.
HTC, if you remember, is already said to be working on a new mini-version of the One, which is codenamed the M4. The device is said to feature a dual-core Qualcomm CPU, 1GB of RAM, a 720p 4.3-inch display, but it will retain the much talked about UltraPixel camera. Rumors claim that the device will be unveiled sometime later this year.
