HTC One Brand Is DEAD – Next Flagship To Be Called HTC O2

HTC is operating on a brand new "Hero" telephone for early 2016. The HTC O2 can be a 6in QHD phablet powered via a Snapdragon 820


We've been listening to a large number of studies just lately that recommend HTC is in a few mad scramble to supply some other handset to compete with Samsung, LG, and Apple following the damp squib that used to be the HTC One M9.

We've heard there may well be a re-release of the One M9, and we have now heard there may well be a telephone dubbed the "Aero" coming in Q4. We understand for a reality a brand new style is being labored on, as a result of HTC's CEO Cher Wang stated as so much right through a stockholder assembly.

The recent phrase from the hearsay mill (which would possibly, or is probably not the similar Aero telephone with a brand new identify), indicates HTC's subsequent flagship can be referred to as the HTC O2. The One collection moniker, it kind of feels, is long past, in favour of one thing slightly extra punchy and succinct.

And with the brand new identify comes a quite tough spec sheet. The information comes from Chinese website online MyDrivers, which claims a subsequent-gen Snapdragon 820 processor will energy the software (uing 14nm FinFET semiconductors, no much less, identical to Samsung's spectacular Exynos 7420). It makes use of 4GB of RAM, 4 ARM-primarily based Qualcomm "Hydra" cores, and an Adreno 530 GPU.

Other main points reportedly come with an "all steel" layout (no actual wonder making an allowance for the One collection). The use of a Snapdragon 820 means that quite than showing inside of Q4 (rumours stated October 2015) we are now taking a look at early 2016 while Snapdragon 820 units normally are anticipated to send.

Another set of rumours from Mobile-Dad declare the HTC O2 will probably be a 6in phablet with a 2560x1440 pixel QHD show (490ppi). The record additionally alleges 64GB and 128GB garage variations (no 32GB?) and a 20MP number one digital camera, with a 5MP shooter at the entrance. HTC has it seems that taken the very important tongue-lashing approximately battery lifestyles to center and is choosing a big 3,500mAh cellphone this time spherical. We're additionally listening to that BoomSound entrance-dealing with stereo audio system can be again, which is superb!
