While players like Samsung and Sony are expected to unveil some great stuff at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in late February 2014, HTC, on the other hand, could unveil not one but two variants of its flagship successor. Before the launch, HTC One, was initially known by its codename, M7. And, the second-generation HTC One 2/ HTC One +, is apparently dubbed as, M8.
That's obvious, but what exactly HTC M8x stands for. Is it a cheap version of upcoming flagship phone, the HTC M8? Or HTC is seriously considering a mini variant of HTC One 2. We don't know anything related to HTC M8x so far. But here comes the latest update on the upcoming flagship.
Postel, an Indonesian authority that basically tracks information related to telecommunications equipment, has approved the coming of two HTC made handsets: M8x and D310w. The website doesn't reveal anything related to internal hardware or release date, except model names. As of now, the HTC M8x is not less than a mystery. The countdown to MWC 2014 has already begun, and in less than two weeks, we would be able to get an exact picture around the HTC M8x.
For a time being, the HTC M8x seems to be an enhanced variant of yet to be announced HTC One 2. The device should be powered by latest Android 4.4 Kitkat with Sense 6.0. Further, the phone is expected to have at least 5-inch FHD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB RAM, " twin-sensor" rear-facing camera, 4G LTE-A, and more.
Talking about the other handset, which has been leaked alongside the M8x, is said to a low-end phone made for China. Blog of Mobile informs that the D310w is expected to flaunt 512MB of RAM, and could be branded as HTC V1 in China. No confirmed release date is out just yet.
Recently, according to a published report, players like HTC, LG and Huawei, could see a shift of market share in 2014. Although, HTC One was crowned as "Phone of the year" by leading tech media, but so far the sales have been flat.
Same can be said about South Korean giant LG, despite spending huge money on marketing and advertisement, the company unfortunately unable to sell the G2 in large numbers. Even Huawei's Ascend P6 went on becoming an underperforming device, as far as sales are concerned.
