A new leak claims that Sprint will soon launch a special edition HTC One (M8) with Harman/Kardon speakers. The carrier is already selling the standard One M8, so we’re guessing this will be launched separately in the coming weeks. We’re yet to ascertain if this will remain exclusive to Sprint, but there’s no mention of this model arriving elsewhere at the moment.
Harman/Kardon is a company renowned for its wide range of audio products and it seems like HTC has struck a deal with them following the split with Beats Audio. Given that audio output is one of the key features of the HTC One with its BoomSound speakers, this new partnership could prove to be very beneficial for the company.
It has been said that Sprint variant of the HTC One (M8) already comes with Harman/Kardon speakers as opposed to the regular BoomSound speakers on other variants of the handset. It is likely that Sprint will soon enable this feature for existing users with the help of a software update. So customers who own the smartphone from Sprint will not have to be disheartened by this news.
