There are plenty of rumour stink-lines emanating from Taiwanese manufacturer HTC at the moment, and things are about to get even stinkier up in da hizzouse.
We’re hearing that HTC’s 2014 flagship will be a little something codenamed the M8 (presumably a tribute to Scotland's busiest motorway), but before that, we should expect an updated HTC One. Also: death to Butterflies?
It’s Pocket-lint breaking news of the HTC M8, though the “source familiar with the matter” couldn’t confirm anything beyond the name. Brilliant. Any idea what the next Samsung Galaxy S will be called, mate?
Of course, we shouldn’t be surprised at the M8 codename, as the current flagship, the HTC One, was codenamed M7.
Before the end of the year, we should also supposedly expect an updated HTC One. There’s not much room for maneuver at the top, and with a change in display size unlikely (the current HTC One is 4.7in), our money’s on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.
In a separate story, also on Pocket-lint, we’re told that the slightly confusing Butterfly line out east will come to an end, with a more uniform One branding across the globe. That makes far too much Sense (see what I did there?).
