Rumor: HTC One’s successor may be called the One+, reportedly will have Snapdragon 805 CPU

According to a new report, the HTC M8 will actually be called the HTC One+ and will feature a beefier Snapdragon 805 CPU after all.
January 3, 2014

Just yesterday @evleaks revealed what he called “preliminary” specs for the HTC M8, which included a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU, 2GB RAM, a 5-inch 1080p display, an UltraPixel rear cam, 2.1MP front cam and KitKat with Sense 6.0. Now if a new report from recognized XDA member Mike1986 proves correct, we’re learning even more about the handset.

First, the phone will reportedly be named the HTC One+, and supposedly it will feature the newer Snapdragon 805 CPU. That said, previous reports have suggested that the Snapdragon 805 won’t arrive until later 2014, so keep that in mind.

If the rumored hardware details prove (at least partially) true, we also have learned a bit more about battery size, camera and other specs.

Rumored specifications

  • 5″ FullHD 1080p covered by Gorilla Glass 3
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 805
  • 6 or 8MP UltraPixel camera (possibly with double lens)
  • 2.1MP front camera
  • Software buttons
  • 2900mAh battery
  • Android KitKat with HTC Sense 6.0
  • micro-SIM, microSD
  • NFC

As you can see, the HTC One+ might not be a massive leap up from the original, but it look like it will feature some welcome changes when it comes to processing power, battery size, screen size and — most importantly — it will have an SD slot for memory expansion.

Of course it’s important to note that these specs are still unconfirmed, and so details of the so-called HTC One+ should be taken with a hefty chunk of salt. If the rumored specs are true however, the next-gen flagship from HTC is certainly worth looking out for.

What do you think of the HTC M8 (aka HTC One+) based on the rumored specs, impressed or not?
