It has been a bad year for HTC, with its current flagship, the One M9 being another disappointment for the company. However, it seems like HTC is prepping another premium smartphone that would be the ‘hero' phone for the company. Rumors have it that the phone will be called the HTC O2 and is expected to be launched this year itself.
While there is no confirmation on the device as yet, the source report suggests that the HTC O2 will be a bigger screen device that will feature a 6-inch QHD display with 1440x2560 pixels resolution, and pixel density of 490ppi. The phone is likely to flaunt a sleek design with slim bezels, and will also feature BoomSound stereo speakers on front.
The HTC O2 will employ Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 with quad-core chipset that will feature four custom Hydra cores, paired with Adreno 530 GPU. The processor will be supplemented by 4GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of internal storage.
Speaking of camera, the phone will feature a 20.7-megapixel rear-facing rear camera like the current generation One M9 smartphone, however the front will adorn a 5-megapixel selfie camera instead of HTC's UltraPixel techology.
The phone might as well get an IP certification for dust and water resistance. There is no clue on which Android version will it run. Other features in the phone will include a 3500mAh battery.
While an unannounced HTC smartphone, dubbed as Aero, has been in rumors for quite some time, the H2 seems to be a new phone altogether. Still, considering that there is no concrete information about the HTC O2 smartphone, we suggest you take it with a pinch of salt.
