HTC M8x certification underway in Indonesia


The HTC M8 has yet to make its way through the FCC, but a new listing in POSTEL’s database (Indonesia’s equivalent of the FCC) may indicate that the device is being tested by multiple communication certification agencies around the globe. Labeled as the HTC M8x, the phone’s status is listed as “Test Center” with a date of January 13  - suggesting the handset is currently undergoing certification testing.

The database also lists the HTC D310w – a device that hasn’t been on our radar. The lettering and number scheme suggest that the HTC D310w is a variant of the HTC Desire 300, which launched in Europe and Asia in the fall of 2013.

The POSTEL database does not have any other HTC M8x details listed, but rumors claim the HTC M8 will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 5-inch 1080p display, 2,900 mAh battery, fingerprint scanner and a dual-sensor camera for improved image clarity and low-light performance. We have yet to see any leaks of the Android 4.4 with HTC Sense 6 software that will power the HTC M8, but we suspect a leak or two will give us a peek at HTC’s software before the handset is unveiled.

What surprises do you think HTC still has in store for us with the HTC M8?

    I really think it should come with high end specs, I don’t want it to get outdated too soon. Probably hear an excuse like “The HTC M8 can’t handle anymore updates.” I’d like to see a Snapdragon 805, 3gb ram, 8-13 UltraPixel, 3300+mah battery,camera, and maybe a 2k res.

      People need to stop worrying about battery size and focus more on what the battery can offer. Software optimization does a lot more for a device than simply adding in a larger battery.

        So why not have both a large battery AND software optimization? No one would complain about having too long a battery life but other people would greatly appreciate it.

          A larger battery would take up more space, causing hardware issues. It would actually benefit us more if they had software optimizations over a larger battery.

            Keep in mind that larger batteries are also the largest and heaviest component in mobile devices. If the HTC M8 does have a 2900 mAh battery as rumored, it should be able to last through 6-7 hours of netflix streaming or 12-14 hours of heavy use.

    The one surprise that I’m hoping to see from HTC is the inclusion of the Snapdragon 805, but I don’t think that will happen since Qualcomm claims the chip will not be ready for handsets until late Q2 or early Q3.

    Also, HTC needs to fix the UltraPixel tech they have inside the HTC One and give us something which produced higher quality images in all situations. I like the fact that the One can take decent shots in dark environments, but I want a few extra megapixels so that I can have more pixels to work with after the fact.
