The HTC One (M8) has been a real thing for a couple of months now, and in that time we’ve been told to expect a couple of variants, namely the super-specced One (M8) Prime, and the plastic-cased, wallet-friendly One (M8) Ace.
Confusing things slightly, the HTC One (M8) Plus sounds like a different thing altogether, though the HTC One (M8) Advance could be the same as the One (M8) Ace. Maybe.
The story so far with the HTC One (M8) Prime: waterproof, 5.5in QHD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, LTE-A Cat 6, and a Dual Lens rear camera.
Here’s where it starts to get confusing. The HTC One (M8) Plus supposedly has similar specs, including a “2K display with highest pixel count to date”, which kind of implies we’re talking pixels per inch i.e. it’s smaller than the 5.5in QHD LG G3 i.e. it’s not the 5.5in QHD One (M8) Prime.
Backing up that notion, the HTC One (M8) Plus is tipped to come with a single-lens 13MP rear camera, while the HTC One (M8) Prime has been shown in render format with Dual Lens technology – as found on the existing base model.
Potentially the fourth HTC One (M8) variant is the One (M8) Advance, which supposedly has the same specs as the One (M8) Plus, but with a plastic body, which will consequently bring the asking price down. Again, it might be the same as the One (M8) Ace.
Now if you’ll excuse me, my head has just exploded.
