HTC is undergoing some tough times, despite of launching an amazing handset known as HTC One last year. However, it didn’t manage to outsell Samsung and Apple. Currently, the market share of the Taiwanese manufacturer is around 3-4 percent, and lies on number six in the worldwide ranking.
Rumors suggest that HTC is working on the successor of HTC One, dubbed as HTC One Two or HTC M8, which might launch later this year, possibly in March. According to a new report, HTC’s upcoming handset might features separate camera lenses for high and low-light photography.
According to analysts based in Taiwan, HTC One Two will feature a similar set of specifications as its predecessor with a few additional features, including switchable camera lenses for different lighting conditions, along with a fingerprint scanner. HTC already introduced the fingerprint technology in its oversized HTC One Max, as well as Apple with its iPhone 5S.
The report mentions that it is expected to feature a 4.9-inch display with a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset under the hood. Based on earlier rumors, HTC One Two might come with support for 1080p resolution or 2K resolution which is going to be the future, along with a Snapdragon 800 chipset on board.
There’s no word about the RAM, but we’re wildly guessing it should be 3GB as that’s what should be a part of flagship devices. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 already features 3GB RAM, and is an amazing device. In terms of software, HTC One successor is expected to run Android 4.4 KitKat with the latest Sense 6.0 UI out of the box.
The handset is rumored to launch by the end of first quarter, and is expected to hit all major US carriers. There’s a possibility that HTC may showcase the successor at MWC 2014 in February with a launch March.
