Leaks and rumors of the successor to the HTC One, codenamed M8, have stedily increased over the past couple weeks. The handset is still several weeks away, and according to famous tipster @evleaks, the device may finally be unveiled in late March.
The M8 is rumored to have several changes from the previous version of the device. One of the most prominent, and most likely, is the on-screen navigation buttons. Google has been pushing this new design standard for Android since the release of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. While several manufacturers including LG and Motorola have adopted this standard in their flagship devices, HTC stuck to capactive buttons in the HTC One. As you can see in the leak above, HTC’s next flagship might just change that.
The device is also apparently going to have a dual-SIM variant in some regions. A localized site for the Postal and Telecommunications Offices for New Caledonia (a French special collectivity in the Pacific Ocean, near Australia) has a listing for the HTC One 2 in which it specifies dual-SIM connectivity. The original HTC One also had a dual-SIM variant so this comes as no surprise.
What do you want to see in HTC’s next flagship?
