HTC M8 to be 2014 flagship, but first: updated HTC One?

HTC M8 to be 2014 flagship, but first: updated HTC One?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.

That’s in addition to the rumoured HTC One Mini (HTC M4) and HTC One Max (HTC T6).

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?).

I hope they do release an updated htc one before the end of the year, and preferably one with a bigger screen and more updated features rather than just a faster processor (the processor on the current htc one is fast enough, can't see people flocking to buy an updated (and more expensive) htc one if all it's got is an updated processor.

although releasing an updated HTC one does kinda go back on their "only one flagship phone a year claim"

HTC One Max + Snapdragon 800 + 64Gb = Yum!
