HTC has handled leaks rather poorly this year when it comes to their new flagship device, we have already seen a video, a few galleries of photos and specification sheets leaked, along with a seller on eBay trying to shift the new HTC One on Verizon Wireless for $499.
But what do we actually know about the upcoming smartphone, quite a lot actually. The patterns in leaks really verify each other, when you hear about a specification or feature from several different sources, its more than likely going to appear on the device.
The HTC One or M8 as it is codenamed now, will retain the same name as the original in 2013. This means, it will be named the HTC One, again. Apart from a few new features, the phone will be pretty much identical to the original HTC One.
Design wise, the front of the HTC One will be slightly bigger, going from a 4.7-inch display to a 5-inch display. The resolution will remain 1080p, although the PPI will be slightly lower due to the screen size increase.
The button layout on the HTC One will change, no longer will we have the HTC logo and either side two capacitive keys, with the Taiwanese company opting for software keys and the HTC logo underneath the device.
Internally, the HTC One will be sporting a new Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 4 UltraPixel camera and a 5MP on the back and 2800mAh battery.
The two cameras on the back will be called Duo Camera, according to various leaks, the Duo Camera will allow users to take more accurate photos and play around with 3D effects in photo and video.
BlinkFeed and Zoe will both get an update on the new version of Sense 6.0. HTC will also be adding a feature to double tap to wake up the screen and allow you to answer calls by putting the phone to your ear.
