HTC M8 to retain 1080p display resolution, user agent confirms

20 January, 2014

The HTC M8 leak marathon continues with an User Agent Profile coming straight from the HTC website. The successor to the popular HTC One didn't get too many of its specs listed there, but at least we got official confirmation of its screen resolution.

The profile confirms 1920 x 1080 pixel screen - the same as on the HTC One. We also learned an interesting detail on the controls of the smartphone - according to the profile the M8 won't have any physical buttons on its body. This means HTC might be shifting to virtual buttons - like on the Nexus line of devices, the LG G2, many Xperia smartphones and others.

There's nothing else worth mentioning so we'll do a little recap of what we've heard so far. The HTC M8 could be called HTC One+ or HTC Two, the latter appears unlikely but stranger things have happened.

The chipset is taunted as a MSM8974 - the same Snapdragon 800 found in the LG Nexus 5, LG G2, Nokia Lumia 1520 and others. The screen could be between 4.9" and 5", the camera is said to be another Ultrapixel unit with no word on the exact resolution. No word on whether the device will feature a fingerprint scanner like the HTC One Max, but chances seem high.
