HTC M8, the long impending successor to the original HTC One, could feature on-screen navigation buttons, @evleaks tweeted on Wednesday.
This is for the first time we've ever heard that HTC may bring some incremental changes, as far as its new line up is concerned.
"M8 will be the first HTC device with on-screen buttons", reads latest tweet sent from @evleaks Twitter account.
Google had been saying for quite some that the adoption of on-screen navigation bar would help to standardize Android experience. While players like Samsung haven't shown interest in coming up with designs similar that to Nexus 5, but meanwhile HTC could bring a phone with an on-screen navigation buttons.
Further, there are no leaked images available, so as to get a rough idea round the appearance of HTC One +.
But before moving further, it is important to know what exactly one mean to say by incorporating on-screen navigation buttons, instead of using regular three-way capacitive touch sensitive buttons. If HTC is planning to go with on-screen navigation buttons, than expect so-called "HTC One +" to be compared with Google Nexus 5, in respect to form factor and size.
Simply, HTC's upcoming flagship device could very well be a fusion of HTC One and Nexus 5. May be the Taiwanese giant replace capacitive touch screen buttons, thus, making room for a larger 5-inch bezelless display without messing up with original design.
Meanwhile, HTC's next-flagship phone is expected to have a 5-inch Full HD display having a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Earlier it was reported that HTC might use 2K resolution supported display.
Additionally, the HTC M8 would use a quad-core processor powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM. The much hyped phone reportedly to come with Android 4.4 Kitkat out of the box with Sense 6.0 UI on the top of it.
The phone is rumored to have "twin-sensor" rear-facing camera, and 4G LTE-A for super fast internet connectivity.
