It does seem as though the upcoming flagship smartphone from Taiwanese manufacturer, HTC, will simply retain the name of its predecessor – the HTC One, and not the “All New HTC One” as originally rumored. This statement was derived from the possibility of the recent eBay listing of the unreleased Verizon-bound HTC One that showed off a package with just the words “HTC One” on the outside without depicting the handset itself. Well, we now have received word from “a source close to a popular mobile phone retail chain” that they will want to keep on selling the original HTC One alongside the 2014 HTC One.
I suppose we will just have to wait until this coming March 25th to receive the whole picture, so it should not be too long of a wait with slightly less than a fortnight ago. The upcoming HTC One will boast of improved hardware specifications compared to its predecessor, so to have a cheaper HTC One around might prove to be a decent alternative for those who want a high quality handset without having to fork out too much money for it in the first place. Other companies have also done the same, such as Apple retaining its older generation iPhone despite rolling out the iPhone 5s.
