Come 2014, many are expecting HTC to release a follow-up handset to 2013’s HTC One handset. We have heard the rumors which have suggested that the handset could be known as the HTC M8, although recent rumors have suggested otherwise, instead referring to the handset as the HTC One Two which is apparently not a single device, but rather the name of a lineup of new devices from the Taiwanese company. In any case thanks to a newly leaked photo, we might have an idea of what the HTC One’s successor could look like, which is to say it will look exactly the same as the HTC One.
This is based on leaked images of a 3D printout of the handset which is supposedly based on specifications of the HTC One’s successor. For the most part it looks like there isn’t a huge change in terms of design, although its edges do seem a tad rounder. While we can’t tell based on the 3D printout, the handset is also rumored to be keeping the Boomsound speakers on the top and bottom of the handset, providing a stereo sound effect when held horizontally. The device is also rumored to sport a slightly larger display at 5”, a slight upgrade over the HTC One’s 4.7” display.
If anything this 3D printout is similar to what we have seen in the past, but until we get the official word, take it with a grain of salt for now, but hopefully we will learn more at either CES or MWC 2014, both of which are around the corner.
