The image below has just been leaked by Evleaks, who says the handset is the upcoming HTC One M8 Prime. It is rumoured to sport a 5.5-inch QHD (1440 x 2560) display, Snapdragon 805 chipset and 3GB RAM. The handset is said to be made out of composite aluminium-silicon carbide material as well as being waterproof.
What’s interesting is that the HTC One M8 only recently launched, so if these rumours turn out to be true it would leave current M8 owners with a bad taste. Samsung are also rumoured to be launching an update to the Galaxy S5, dubbed the S5 Prime which would also sport a similar resolution display. Sony may get scolded for openly having a twice yearly flagship policy but at least everyone knows where they stand. However, given the competitive nature of the market it seems that the other biggest Android manufacturers plan to follow Sony’s lead.
