HTC One 2 Coming Soon ON IDRIS Electronics
The HTC One is a lovely thing. Its good looks and outstanding build were a big part of the reason we awarded it the Android crown, placing it right at the top of Stuff’s list of the 10 best smartphones in the world before the LG G2 came along to usurp it.HTC isn’t taking a breather. News of the HTC One Plus (codenamed the M8) has already started trickling through the wheels of the tech rumour mill.’HTC One 2′. Doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue, does it? Its codename, M8, is pretty uninspiring too.Luckily, it looks like HTC’s new flagship will be called the HTC One Plus, thanks to official HTC cases appearing on Mobile Fun with the One Plus moniker.The HTC One Plus will share 99 percent of its DNA with the current HTC One, if all the leaked pictures are to be believed.The most recent shots courtesy of Russian site mobiltelefon.ru show off a phone that, at first glance, looks identical to the sexy aluminium HTC One we all know and love.Leaked shots of the HTC One Plus’ aluminium shell (courtesy of ePrice) also show off a One-like smooth curved aluminium back with polycarbonate accent strips. If you look closely enough you might notice a second smaller circular cutout above the camera too. More on that later…HTC One Plus will have a 5in 1080p display (marginally bigger than the One’s 4.7in offering), 2GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 800 processor, though we’re hoping that this will get switched to the newer, more powerful Snapdragon 805.One Plus will launch with HTC Sense 6, which should bring with it a few major tweaks and improvements to the current iteration of HTC’s Android skin.We expect the One Plus to arrive with at least 2GB of RAM and 32/64GB of memory, though we wouldn’t keep our fingers crossed for a microSD slot if we were you. (That said, the HTC One Max has one, and there’s a dual SIM One with a removable back in the offing, so it’s not beyond the realms of possibility).
