There have been lots of rumors surrounding the successor of the HTC One. It has been called the HTC One+ and even the HTC M8. A French government site however may have spilled the beans as to what the device is going to be officially called as New Caledonia’s Office of Posts and Telecommunications website lists two devices called the HTC One 2 and the HTC One 2 Dual SIM.
Since the name has been spotted on an official French government site then it adds more credibility to it and despite the fact that HTC has not made any official announcements yet there is a very big possibility that the names are already official.
The website does not provide any details on the HTC One 2 other than the fact that it will come in a single SIM and a dual SIM version. It will also be having a 3G capability since it is listed in the 3G compatibility section of the website.
So what do we know about the HTC One 2 so far? Here’s a roundup of all the rumors surrounding this device.
In terms of its display the device is said to get a bump in screen size as well as in its resolution. The original HTC One had a 4.7 inch S-LCD3 display with 1080p resolution. The HTC One 2 is said to have a 5 inch display and will have a 2K resolution (1440×2560) which is at par with the rumored Samsung Galaxy S5 display.
As far as the processor that is being used @evleaks previously reported that this device will sport a Snapdragon 800 quad core processor (Snapdragon MSM8974) with a clock speed of up to 2.3GHz. Several AnTuTu benchmark results of the M8 also points to a Snapdragon 800 processor being used. The original HTC One has a Snapdragon 600 processor with a clock speed of 1.9GHz.
The HTC One 2 will have the same RAM as the HTC One which is 2GB.
As far as the camera goes it’s definitely going to be an improvement over the previous model. There is still no solid information in this area however we are sure that HTC’s Ultrapixel technology will still be used. One rumor points out that the device will have dual Ultrapixel rear cameras while another rumor points out that it will have a 10MP Ultrapixel camera with swappable lenses.
Other rumored specs of the device are as follows
- 2,900mAh battery
- case made of molded metal
- Sapphire fingerprint scanner
- Android 4.4 (KitKat) with HTC Sense 6.0
