Almost every brands has already launched its flagship smartphone during the MWC (Mobile World Congress) earlier this year. But looks like these brands are already working on next generation of devices which can be launched as soon as later this year. HTC might launch the HTC One Prime with updated hardware to compete with the likes of LG G3 and Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime. According to leaked information, the HTC One Prime might come with a 5.5 inch QHD screen, 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and an updated 18MP rear camera.
HTC One Prime Specifications
- 5.5 inch QHD screen (2560 x 1440 pixels), LCD display, multitouch capacitive, Gorilla Glass 3
- 18MP Duo camera, 5MP Depth Sensor, 4K video recording (expected), 5MP front camera
- 2.3 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor (APQ8084), Adreno 420 GPU

Both, the HTC One (2013) and the HTC One (M8) had received great reviews from all the experts around the world except for its low resolution camera sensor. Although it did capture more light than others which resulted in some great low light images and videos, it was criticised for low resolution count which limits the images for smaller sized prints and sharing only on social networks. Now, HTC might have decided to fix one glaring issue which might have affected sales of its previous generation smartphones with a large camera sensor with high pixel count. The HTC One Prime might use an 18MP camera sensor (might be the Aptina AR2520HS) with 4K video shooting capabilities along with a 5MP depth sensor camera for a Duo Camera setup just like the HTC One (2013). It features a new 4G LTE compatible cellular radio which might be compatible with 4G LTE bands in India.
We currently do not have any details about the design or battery capacity of the upcoming HTC One Prime which might be officially announced in September 2014. We have already reported about an upcoming plastic version of HTC One M8 which might come with a lower price tag, offering great value for money. There is also a chance that the rumoured HTC One Prime and Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime might be a part of Android Silver devices which are supposed to replace the Nexus devices sometime soon.
