Taiwanese mobile phone maker HTC Corporation is reportedly preparing the launch of a successor for its HTC One smartphone for March, and it might pack it with a larger screen compared to last year’s flagship.
According to a recent Bloomberg report, a source with knowledge of the company’s plans has confirmed this, while also unveiling that the device will sport a twin-sensor camera on the back.
The new handset will be launched in the same HTC One series of devices and is expected to be powered by the latest Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm.
It should have a screen of at least 5 inches, though it is expected to be smaller than the HTC One max, which was launched last year with a 5.9-inch display.
Apparently, the new model will sport about the same design as the current model, though some changes will be noticeable on it.
HTC One was launched with a 4.7-inch touchscreen display, a quad-core processor inside, 2GB of RAM, and a 4MP UltraPixel camera on the back.
Although previous reports on the matter suggested that the upcoming flagship smartphone would keep the same camera, it appears that HTC has decided to go for a different setup.
The new sensor will ensure that users will take advantage not only of better focus, but also of improved depth of field and enhanced image quality. Basically, this will be an upgraded version of the UltraPixel camera on HTC One.
Other details on this device are not known at the moment, yet the phone was previously rumored to hit shelves under the name of HTC One+.
It should also come with a larger amount of internal memory, and it might also sport a microSD memory card slot. Most probably, HTC will launch it with the new Android 4.4 KitKat operating system loaded on top right from the beginning.
The Taiwanese vendor has yet to confirm any of the above. Until that happens, we should take said details with a grain of salt.
