A few days ago we talked about HTC One 2 also known as HTC M8 which is the successor to the HTC One and today a few preliminary specs came on the internet that didn’t impress us at all, because according to the specs the smartphone is barely an upgrade to HTC One.
According to evleaks the HTC ONE 2 was supposed to be equipped with a Snapdragon 800 processor and todays he confirms it that the smartphone will be equipped with QUALCOMM Snapdragon MSM8974 which will be clocked at 2.2 or 2.3 GHz. It will also have a display of 5-inches with the resolution of 1080p and 2GB of RAM. It’s got a 2.1 megapixel front camera while there were no details on the back camera it might be bumped a little but it will get the same ultra-pixel camera technology which can come up with amazing shots even in low light.
If HTC did released their HTC One 2 or so called HTC M8 with the specs mentioned above in that case no one will be interested in it. All the other companies like Samsung and LG are moving towards screens with much better resolutions higher than the 1080 HD resolution, they are planning of releasing their next gen smartphones with 2k and 4k resolution displays. Other than that the upgrade from Snapdragon 600 to 800 might be the only thing that sounds exciting about the phone, even though that won’t make much of a different because even with HTC ONE having the Snapdragon 600 it was able to surpass some of the popular smartphones out there like the Samsung S4 and LG G2 in benchmarks. The RAM is the same too while all the other smartphones will be upgrading to 3GB of RAM where Samsung will be coming up with 4 GB DDR4 RAM.
We won’t have any doubts about the performance of the smartphone because HTC ONE as it is, is already out performing a lot of smartphones and there is barely any lag while using HTC ONE. HTC should also add more megapixels to their ultra-pixels camera, it might come up with amazing shots in low light but in day light its picture quality is worse mainly because of the 4 megapixels which bottlenecks its overall performance.
