So the HTC One M8 was announced and released not too long ago, which is why we find it surprising that a new and unknown HTC device has recently been spotted on the benchmarks. Of course we expect that HTC has a ton of new devices in the works, but this particular model appears to pack some pretty impressive specs, which has us wondering if HTC has another high-end model they are working on.
According to the AnTuTu benchmark sighting, this particular HTC goes by the model number 0PAJ3 which doesn’t really clue us in as to what kind of device it is. The benchmarks also reveals that the device will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage, a 1920×1080 display, and two cameras: a 5MP and a 13MP.
If we had to guess, we’d say that the 13MP camera will be on the back while the 5MP will be on the front, although this is interesting given HTC’s UltraPixel camera technology which they used on their flagship devices. Some speculate that this could be a tablet especially in the face of the rumors that the next Nexus tablet could be built by HTC.
However with both the current-gen Nexus 7 and the Nexus 10 sporting a higher resolution than 1920×1080, we doubt that Google will be taking a step backwards by opting for Full HD. This opens it up to the possibility that the device spotted on the benchmarks could be the next-gen HTC Butterfly.
In any case we’ll be keeping our eyes and ears peeled for more information regarding this HTC 0PAJ3 model, but in the meantime what do you guys make of its specs? Would you rather get your hands on this device or would you prefer the HTC One M8 instead?
