Anticipating the Launch of the HTC One 2 (M8)
If the past is of any help, the brand's former release date have typically taken place in February. Usually, the announcements are held in connection with the Mobile World Congress or MWC - an annual event held each February. For example, the HTC One phone had a scheduled launch date in 2013 of February 19th, which was just a week before the MWC gathering. Therefore, it stands to reason that HTC codename M8 will follow suit this year. So, expect to see the M8 go on sale in March, or, by the latest, of April 2014.
Spec details for the M8 include a 1920 x 1080 pixel high definition display of 5 inches as well as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. Reports indicate that the newly introduced phone will be fuelled by 2GB of RAM. After delving into the features further, reports in the field also suggest that the phone will possess a 2.3 GHZ Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset. Consumers are hoping that the phone's handset will hold more external storage, all which will keep HTC competitive in the mobile field.
The latest update reveals that HTC plans to decrease internal phone storage to 16 GB while including a microSD card to support HTC One 2 functioning. From the upgrades made thus far, it's anticipated that HTC will be making sound innovations to its HTC One 2 and other HTC devices.
HTC One 2 Camera
The HTC One 2 functions as more than a communications device, but is noted for its 2.1 megapixel front camera and rear 4-megapixel "UltraPixel" camera. The rear camera can be compared with the UltraPixel camera featured on the M7 HTC One Smartphone of last year. Because the HTC One has not received the high praise for its camera performance, like Apple and Nokia, it remains to be seen how the new M8 will fare in this respect.
A Highly Touted Design
Given all the aforementioned details, the new HTC M8, neverless, just like its predecessor, does feature a design that is touted and praised. The looks of the phone's handset with its high-quality finish makes the M8 a preferred phone when it comes to aesthetics and looks. Reports also suggest that future HTC phones will be steering away from utilizing hardware buttons and will, instead, be using software type buttons to conform to Google standards and preferences.
