Most of the recent HTC M8 stories have centered around rumors or leaks, but today we have official documentation from HTC that gives us a little insight into the handset’s features. The AT&T HTC M8 UAprof file has been uploaded to HTC’s servers, indicating that the phone will be running on Android 4.4 with a 1920×1080 Full HD display (size is not listed). The all-important <prf:Model> reference which gave us the official name of the HTC One before it was unveiled has been omitted from the file, so we still don’t know what the HTC M8 will be named at launch. Some have speculated that the HTC M8 will be called the HTC Two or the HTC One+, but “a person with direct knowledge of the plans” claims that the M8 will carry the same HTC One name as last year’s flagship model.
Based on when the HTC M8′s UAprof and Wi-Fi Alliance Certification were discovered, the handset should be ready to go on sale a few weeks earlier than the HTC One did last year. The HTC M8′s Wi-Fi Alliance Certification hit the web four weeks before than the HTC M7′s and the M8′s UAprof has been discovered three weeks ahead of the HTC One’s. Last year’s HTC One did see a limited launch in Europe during the last week of March, so we may see the HTC M8 (HTC One 2014) hit store shelves in European and US markets a few weeks earlier.
