The phone is still months away from release, but new leaks of the HTC M8 detail the specs of what will likely be HTC’s next flagship phone.
The HTC M8 recently appeared in the AnTuTu benchmarking database, detailing the specs of what’s likely a prototype version of the new phone. The specs detail a phone that’s very similar to the current HTC One (which carried the code-name HTC M7), but with an upgraded processor. While the HTC One uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, the leaked specs of the HTC M8 she the phone as using the newer Snapdragon 800.
The HTC M8 will also likely use an upgraded graphics processor. The AnTuTu specs list the phone as using an Adreno 330 graphics processor, an upgrade from the Adreno 320 used in the HTC One. The new graphics processor won’t have to push any more pixels, however, as the HTC M8 in the leaked specs has a 5-inch 1080p display. That’s the same resolution as the HTC One display, though it is 0.3-inches larger, making it less pixel dense.
Everything else inside the HTC M8 should sound familiar to anyone who’s looked at the HTC One. It has a same 4.0MP rear-facing camera (possibly the same UltraPixel camera as the HTC One), a 2.1MP front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage.
The upgraded processor and graphics processor make the HTC M8 much faster than the HTC One. The new phone bests the current flagship device in every benchmarks AnTuTu tests. The M8 has particularly impressive results in both the 3D graphics and multitasking tests where it far exceeds the performance of the HTC One.
With other phones on the market currently using the Snapdragon 800 processor, however, there’s a chance the HTC M8 won’t seem quite as impressive when it comes to market in Spring 2014. By then some phones on the market may use the recently-announced Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor. Or, perhaps, the HTC M8 will use the new chip, and HTC is simply testing a prototype using the only processor it has available.
Excited for HTC’s next flagship?

camera need to be better!
otherwise pretty solid, i hope they keep the same quality as the one, and market it better
It cannot be 4mp or else it’s over for them. Samsung already has 16 mp cam that also does well in low light situation so basically the HTC camera does not have anything that makes it better than samsung
Camera is no good… I’m returning my phone because of that, take pictures with a purple tint color or Green color .They claim they fixing that problem but I don’t know how. HTC ONE is a great phone but NOT THE CAMERA :/
I know, its a real shame because specs and build look great, even sense looks good. They need to nail the camera this time round if they want to survive
Let’s see what HTC has to offer. The HTC ONE looked very nice, I may still get it if it gets cheaper n.n

Just saying it now, The camera will be 8mp. HTC isn’t stupid
They had better not be.
They need to take on Nokia’s crown when they dissapear, then they will be the best phones I think!
It better be. I am not so impressed by my One camera.
It will be a 4 HYPERpixel camera, for the fanboys.
it seems pretty standard compared to the current phones. Nothing really stands out really besides it 4mp or ultrapixels. Its running the current snapdragon and adreno and even has a 5 inch display.
Sorry, i’ve been waiting for the rumoured Snapdragon 805 to come true next year, Snapdragon 800 will be the old model at that time.
How much of a difference does that even make? :|
When the newer apps and HD games start to make your older processor struggle, that is the time when a newer processor shines.
The 805 is not being released until summer 2014.
funny thing everyone is making in-house soc’s
even the new mediatek soc is awesome
that’s why qualcomm is supposedly cutting jobs
That’s why i said i am not getting this phone because of that lol
And you are a dumbass bitch
Whats wrong with you dude? Any problem? Need help?
Keep doing that, i like it lol
@disqus_jZ57Ybjr3r:disqus You obviously had a rough childhood
@disqus_jZ57Ybjr3r:disqus You obviously had a rough childhood!
What apps tax even the Snapdragon 600?
If I had to guess this is the Butterfly 2 specs and not the next One (5″ screen is something specific to the Butterfly range)
But I’m kind of disapointed with Qualcomm, as it isn’t going with Arm v8 Instruction sets even the S805 will only use Arm v7-a , and the other variants of the S800 (AB/AC (2.4 and 2.5Ghz will remain with Arm v8)
I hope it gets a 8mp camera while retaining the larger aperture. It might just make the iPhone 5s have a run for it’s money (camera). Hope it gets the 805 and keeps the base storage at 32gb (unless it’s expandable like the Max)
The 805 is not being released until Summer 2014!! It won’t have it!!
Yes, base storage at 32gb is a must in 2014, with more HD content than ever.
I own a Note 3 and personally I think it has been hit a speed “plateau”, as honestly I don’t think more is needed for a while and for a phone. More than the processor, 3 GB of RAM are truly useful. A jump from Qualcomm 600 is needed but after the 800 only if games get along in both graphics and physics. In the moment games producers need to optimize the code as I test several games that have on Note 3, the same flaws and speed issues as on my old S3 and some Sony. Tablets are a different story *if* you can work with apps side – by – side.
As a One owner, I’m curious why you say the jump from Snapdragon 600 to 800 is necessary?
I doubt these specs are real. I mean, seriousky , it has G2 specs and it’s being released in months!
There’s nothing else available as far as chipsets. What do you expect them to use?
i think the 1440p vivo 3s
has the new snapdragon 805 plus this is not a good time to release a flagship
the camera is not 4 megapixel but 4 ULTRA pixel which means bigger pixels but more colour contrast.
Are they reusing the camera from the one? Lame.
Reusing the Camera… ‘Luka’ Please hope not …HTC ONE Camera is no good ;/ I’m returning my HTC ONE because of that … considering I pay $500:00 Retail price :/ … running to the store before the return policies expires Lol
Yea i know. That’s why i posted Lame. BTW be luck, where I’m from the retail price is around 1000$
So HTC is going to release a 2013-spec device in 2014, while the rest will swtich to the Snapdragon 805, smart move.
Did you even read the full article?
I did, i’m not impressed, because the HTC One Max is also running the ancient Snapdragon 600.
You do realise the 805 is NOT BEING RELEASED UNTIL SUMMER 2014 right? That means all phones released in the first 6 months will come with the 800.
yeah but samsung is going 64 bits. so bye bye htc
64 bits is a complete and total gimmick. That is useless in the current space and is not needed. And for Samsung’s LTE S5 it will use the Snapdragon 800. Which isn’t 64 bit. Samsung’s own processor’s are not compatible with LTE.
Yeah but iPhone already has 64 bits and it has superior speed. I support HTC but unfortunatelthe public does not know that the difference between processors are minimal so on the marketing aspect not only do they lack in funding for ads their phone would also lose to iPhone and Samsung in specs and camera sadly.
64 bit is faster you daft fool! Learn something before typing anything that comes in that pathetic mind of yours.
It is a gimmick dumbass. No apps or games will be able to take advantage of it for at least another year or so it it a waste. You are such a twat.
Oh so you can see the future, huh fanboy? Or do you think no apps or games will be released in 64-bit for another year in westonland?
You’re so butthurt when anyone insults HTC, damn! HTC SUCKS :P
Go and tell HTC to start innovating FASTER. They really make smartphones with premium feel and awesome sound quality, but their specs bring them down (I know it doesn’t matter much). M8 WILL have 800 processor. Why will I wait for M8 when I can already buy LG G2, G flex, Galaxy Round, Lumia 1520, Note 3? Embrace the fact that HTC really really need to speed up its game.
Yeah but HTC will not use 805 until summer 2015 when the next successor would already be in line. Embrace the fact that HTC is really slow compared to Samsung, Motorola, LG and others
How the Galaxy S4 and HTC One both have the same processor. The S5 and M8 will have the same processor more than likely. And in 2015 HTC will be using the successor to the successor of the 805 you moron. Please. Samsung couldn’t innovate its way out of a paper bag they can only copy others. LG just copies Samsung and HTC. The only other phone company innovating besides HTC would be Moto. But HTC still kills Moto when it comes to phones. Better hardware. Better design Better software. You seriously can’t be this big of a daft twat.
LOL, you idiot! HTC is using 800 NOW. When EVERYONE has already released smartphones with 800 processor. Do you realise how slow is HTC? Note 3, Lg G2, G flex, Galaxy round ALL have 800 processor. Even CHINESE brands like gionee ALREADY have released smartphones with 800 processor, and HTC is GOING TO release a phone.
Moron, daft twat, daft fool, are these all the words you know?
Do you know about Project Ara? Compare THAT to HTC!
In 2015 HTC will be using the processor which would have ALREADY been used in most phones.
HTC is going to release M8 when people are all accustomed to 800 processor. And you say others copy HTC. How can anyone copy the SLOWEST innovating company?
You do realise that the spec war is over and that specs don’t matter any matter. The Moto X proved that.
Yes I know Project Ara and it doesn’t interest me at all. The modular phone concept is stupid.
You clearly don’t know what you are talking about.
You do realize that you’re doing nothing but making a big fool of yourself? At first you fight that S5 and M8 will have the same processor and all that, then when I proved that HTC is slow and it sucks then you say spec war is over. You’re funny, you know that?
The world doesn’t revolve around YOU fanboy! Project Ara doesn’t give a shit if it interests you or not.
Here I am, trying to make you realize how stupid you are and you clearly have no idea where the world is going, and you just aren’t ready to ready this fact. I pity you
Dude, why you being such a jerk to someone?
The spec war is over. Specs don’t matter anymore.
Project Ara isn’t going to interest the vast majority. And will probably never happen.
That guy, Weston, deleted his account and probably made a new one with a different name. But if you had checked his account yesterday (while it was sill there) you would have seen such a big jerk he used to be to “everyone”. He called “everyone” moron, twat, daft fool and stuff for NO big reason. I just wanted to piss him off. :P
I, myself, don’t care about the specs of a phone while buying it, it should be fast in practical life, no matter what the specs say.
But’ as I said, just wanted to make him realize what he was doing to everyone.
Its disappointing that their camera technology is still not evolved with greater than 4MP or any improvements over their existing 4mp.. Basic hardware wise too its not that impressive since 805 will be the new benchmark very soon
Another site had the internal storage as 32gb fromt he same source so
Its amazing how within a year of availabilty chipsets are considered to be “ancient” or “outdated”…lag free performance is good enough for me…an app opening at a fraction of a second faster isnt really a reason to purchase a device with a more advanced chipset. The s600 chipset is more than adequate for the average consumer. It can do everything that any average person would need very competently. For the tech obsessed having a slight bump in power will only allow for bragging rights if you wanna be honest with yourself. From what we have seen with the Nexus 5 ,the s800 power optimization isnt all that its cracked up to be.
This phone better have a better camera.. Screw Ultra Pixel 4 mp is mp ultra pixel or not.
Are those benchmarks also rigged, like what they did with the One?
euh You’d better read the Anandtech tread pretty well, HTC does not rig benchmark or at least not in the same way Samsung does, out of all benchmarks suites only 2 where the One runs at it maximum cloack, and this happening to ALL Qualcomm SoC phones so it’s most likely related to that, on the other hand Samsung does it for ALL notorious benchmarks not only that but they have scrypts to boost scores and worse than that, their device OVERCLOCK to frenquencies higher than the ones you’ll ever get from the phone in normal usage and what’s the device is advertised for
cheating is cheating.
Like I said before, there is a possibility that is true or it is Qualcomm sided and also it’s not really cheating running your SoC at max as when you do when you detect a game is not cheating for me, but there is a big difference between the results of the investigation on HTC Phones and what the competition does.
After 4 samsungs in a row, and now a nexus 5, this may be my next one… a bit disenchanted with samsung’s attitude these days.
HTC really wants to fail after their great HTC One? First they made HTC one Max which was maybe the biggest disappointment of the year and now this?? Cmon HTC! especially the camera has to improve a lot.
You right about the camera is no good:/
Too low specs to be compared with the high end smartphones of 2014 . And the price will be the same as them .
I honestly just hope they fixed the overheating issue. Hopefully the new processer can handle multiple apps being open without getting hot.
