HTC One+ Could be the Name of the HTC One Successor


It’s been a while since the original HTC One came out so it’s only normal for rumors to start circulating about its successor. Up until this time, the successor has been referred to as the HTC M8 (the HTC One was originally codenamed the M7). However, a new report pegs the official name as being the HTC One+.

According to mike1986, a ROM developer on XDA, the HTC One+ will feature a 5″ Full HD display with Gorilla Glass 3, Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 SoC, and 2GB RAM. The UltraPixel camera will get bumped from 4mp to either a 6mp or 8mp camera. Also, there will no longer be any capacitive buttons as they will instead be found onscreen, similar to what you would see on a Nexus 5. The HTC One+ should also be powered by a beefier 2,900mAh battery and will run Android KitKat 4.4 with HTC Sense 6.0 out of the box.

How reliable is this report? Well, not that much really. Mike1986 doesn’t cite any sources and the report seems more speculative than based on facts. For example, the Snapdragon 805 is slated for a mid-late 2014 release while HTC has historically announced its last 2 flagship phones in February. However, he is a prominent developer and has often been a good source for HTC software-related news in the past. Still, without any cited sources, we’ll just have to take this latest rumor with a heaping tablespoon of salt.
