Along with Samsung’s Galaxy S5, rumours about HTC One’s successor are also in full swing. A report now says the successor to the flagship One will be launched early next year and there’s much talk about some cool hardware additions.
According to Forbes, the successor could be named One Two and come with changeable camera lenses. Firstly, that would be a very weird name, but it must be noted that this is still in speculative territory. The report says the One Two will have separate lenses to suit the lighting conditions. It is speculated to be launched in the first quarter of 2014, could be announced at the Mobile World Congress in February.
Some rumoured specifications of the device include slightly bigger 4.9-inch display, an unspecified Qualcomm processor (we’d be highly surprised if it’s anything less than the Snapdragon 805) and a fingerprint scanner. We aren’t really surprised about the fingerprint feature, as we’ve already seen it in the HTC One Max.
The HTC One launched earlier this year was competing with the high-end smartphones from companies such as Samsung and LG, in the Indian market. It remains one of best designed phones of the year. The One Two should ideally follow on the same lines, but we have seen HTC update their design each year with the flagship and we have some idea about how it may look thanks to an earlier leak. It does look like HTC will be playing on the One’s stellar design, which features a zero-gap aluminium unibody. Read our HTC One review to know more.
