HTC M8 specs spouted, point yet again to juicy follow-up

A prolific leaker has thrown their hat in the HTC M8 spec rumor ring.

@evleaks, in typical cryptic fashion, tweeted out what it called "Preliminary HTC M8 specs" for the handset alternately referred to as the HTC One Two.

We’re not sure what @evleaks means by "preliminary" in this context (and of course there’s no explanation), but the specs sound pretty set for a high-end phone.

It will flaunt a Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974) processor, 5-inch 1080p display and 2GB of RAM, according to the Twitter tipster.

The rear camera will be of the UltraPixel variety while "2.1MP front cams" will occupy the opposite side. It’s said to house 802.11a/b/g/n/ac connectivity, Android 4.4 KitKat and Sense 6.0.

Have you heard the one about the HTC smartphone…

We’ve heard just about all these specs before, but with its solid track record, we’ll weigh @evleak’s pronouncements with some credibility.

HTC has yet to confirm the phone, and we likely won’t see the M8 until at least MWC 2014.

Still, it’s looking all the more real, and all the more a worthy follow-up to the 5-star HTC One.
