HTC M8 Coming Soon On IDRIS Electronics
HTC may be using the M8 codename, but that’s not likely to make it through to the final version, and it has to find someway to tie the new One in with the old One. That would normally mean adding the number two after its name, but as that would make it the HTC One Two, we’re not sure if that’ll happen. Perhaps HTC will opt for disguising the number two (not a pretty picture) in something like superscript, which would work visually, but we’d still all call it the One Two.A comprehensive leak of the phone’s potential features included the suggestion it will be called the HTC One+. While neatly sidestepping the One Two problem, this also ties in with HTC sequels of old. For example, the One X was followed up by the One X+ back in late 2012. The problem with adding a “plus” symbol is the phone sounds like a refresh rather than a true sequel. Will that be the case.HTC M8’s specifications. At this stage, it doesn’t hold any surprises. Both a 5-inch 1080p screen and a Snapdragon 800 processor are distinct possibilities. In early 2014, another @evleaks tweet added a few more details, including 2GB of RAM, a 2.1-megapixel video call camera, and an UltraPixel rear camera. The same leak which provided the One+ name indicates the UltraPixel camera will have 6 or 8-megapixels. However, a source speaking to Phone Arena says HTC will be sticking with the 4-megapixel UltraPixel camera on the One+.In a Bloomberg leak, the camera is described as having twin-sensors for better focus, depth of field, and image quality. No megapixels are mentioned, but it’s said the UltraPixel camera will be an, “Improved version.” Lytro-like cameras, such as DigitalOptics’ module, Toshiba’s dual-lens setup, and the software-driven Nokia Refocus app, have captured headlines recently. However, we’ve yet to see the technology capture the buying public’s attention. The source also told the site the M8 would have a screen measuring at least 5-inches in size, but smaller than the One Max’s 5,9-inches, and a very similar design to the existing HTC One.
