New rumor suggests HTC prepping ‘M8 Prime’

Rumors of an “HTC M8 Ace” have been swirling over the past month or so, hinting at a plastic version of the HTC One (M8) with specs that include a 5-inch 1080p display and quad-core processor. Now it looks like we’ve got another M8 variant to keep track of.

A new device referred to as the “M8 Prime” has been teased by @evleaks on Twitter. However, no details about the M8 Prime have been given, so it’s not yet clear how it differs from the One (M8) that’s on shelves now.

So what might the “M8 Prime” be? We’ll have to wait until HTC or the rumor mill reveals more details before we know for sure, but the “Prime” part of the device’s codename suggests that it could be a device that’s even higher-end than the One (M8). Samsung is rumored to be prepping a premium Galaxy S5 that’s codenamed “KQ” and features a 2560×1440 display, so it’s possible that HTC may be planning a similar handset.

What do you all think that this “M8 Prime” could be? Would you like to see HTC release a premium version of the One (M8) with a super high-res display?
