HTC UAprof file details AT&T M8 with 1080p display

htc-logo-sketch

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.

    I dont companies like it when they keep the names the same as the previous year, its awful searching for details & on ebay, you keep getting the previous model.

      I understand your confusion, but there are obvious reasons on how you can tell it’s the newest version. Look for the year. Example: 2014 edition, or the device itself will look a little different. Nobody seems to be having the issue confusing iPhones when selling those. They all look the same.

      • surethom

        Yes I realize visually you can tell the difference but instaid of a small list of for the new phone/tablets it will a very long list with this years & last years devices.

      Pretty sad definitely HTC is living in late 2012 and last year while everyone else has moved forward to 2560 by 1440p resolution at 560ppi.

      It’s must feel pretty bad as a business not to be able to keep up with your fellow manufacturers in the tech game.

      Lg, Sony, and Samsung has passed HTC by long time ago. Sadly it reflects in Htc’s overall market share

        Anything old is great for Squiddy20 but the only only problem is he can’t afford to purchase anything new.

        He’s simply a basic loser.

          1. Yes, because all the facts say you can see the difference between resolutions of greater than 1080p on a 5 inch screen from a foot away. (That was sarcasm, in case you actually think I meant it.) More pixels on such a small screen means absolutely nothing except pitiful bragging rights (“mine is bigger than yours”, anyone?) and quicker battery drain. Or do you seriously think it takes the same amount of energy and processing power (from the CPU/GPU) to push 1080p vs 720p?
          2. Here you are yet again with your childish insults (before I’ve even said anything, no less), and no facts to back up your pitiful claims. You’ve claimed for *years* that I “can’t afford to purchase anything new”, and yet I got a $200 Galaxy Nexus on Sprint when it was first made available. Good god are you stupid.

  • surethom

    Please HTC, launch within 2-3 weeks after announcement & before samsung announces there phone. Love the HTC one (2013) but couple not live with the 4megapixel ultrapixel camera, lets hope the 1 or 2 Cameras are 5, 6 or 8 megapixel ultrapixel?

  • Meister_Li

    I really hope this One will have an SD-Card slot like the later editions of the One. That is the one (heh) thing that made me settle for Sony back in last year instead of going with HTC.

  • Luv_HTC

    Sad to say but 1080p might not be enough with all the rumored 2K displays coming from Samsuck and LG. Hopefully the phone will have SD card and more megapixels. I love my HTC One, hope the M8 improves and impresses.

  • Rising32

    1080p screens are just fine for any tv set let alone smart phones. Y would anyone care for anything above ( 4k?? ) really? 4k freaking res on a smart phone? Im all good with 1080p. Only issue I have with this is that when 4k tv’s go main stream then mirroring the phone to tv would be better off if the phone was 4k as well but dam really lol. HTC is alright doing fine, well they could be better but they havent been pushed out of the race yet. They are innovative and proved it with the M7. There are plenty of areas they could shine besides putting a 4k res screen on the M8.
