There’s been a lot of talk recently about HTC releasing a prime variant of the HTC One M8. But till now we haven’t heard anything besides rumors and speculation and some alleged rendered leaks. According to 9to5Google HTC is eventually planning to launch two new variants of the M8, a “plus” invariant and an “advanced” variant. The company is working on two separate devices that will join the M8 family. It may be that the prime model of the M8 would be the rumored “plus” variant rebranded for public consumption. 9to5Google’s source claims that the “plus” will lack the dual camera setup instead have a single 13 megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization. There haven’t been many rumors on the matter yet but it could have a 2K display with the highest pixel count to date 2560 X 1400 resolution. There have also been rumors that the prime model may have a waterproof shell. The fact that HTC may be ditching the double camera setup is very appealing in my opinion instead they will be able to go for a higher megapixel count which has always been the problem with HTC’s flagships.
