The All New HTC One is coming into focus ahead of its suspected March 25 unveiling, and in addition to the unique dual cameras, we now have a better indication of its internal specs.
For example, this follow-up to last year’s HTC One is supposed to boast a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, according to a brochure obtained by GSM Arena.
That’s a step up from the previously rumored Snapdragon 800 chip that was thought to be powering the device and can be found in the current LG G2 and Google Nexus 5 smartphones.
Also, beneath its expected 1080p 5-inch display, the All New HTC One has been tipped to be packing a 2,600 mAh capacity battery.
Leaked specs comparison
These All New HTC One specs, if accurate, would be in line with its Android KitKat competition for 2014, including the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2.
Both phones use a Snapdragon 801 system on a chip from Qualcomm, while the new HTC One’s 2,600 mAh battery life is close to its rivals.
The Galaxy S5 includes a removable 2,800 mAh li-ion battery capacity, while the crams in a non-removeable 3,200 mAh battery. The pros and cons are pretty obvious between the two.
It’s unknown whether or not the All New HTC is destined to have a removable battery, but that wasn’t the case for its predecessor when it launched last year.
The final interesting detail from the brochure indicates that the HTC One for 2014 will include a nano SIM card and slot vs the typical micro SIM configuration.
That should switch from an iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, or iPhone 5 if you’d like to make the jump from iOS 7.1 to Android 4.4.2.
