The next flagship that will arrive after the HTC One M9 will not be called HTC One M10. Rumors have it the new flagship from the Taiwanese tech giant is called HTC O2, which is expected to feature high-end specs.
According to GSM Dome that cites Mobile-Dad (a Chinese website), the HTC O2 will be a phablet device with a 6-inch display. It will be offering a Quad HD resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels at a pixel density of 490 ppi. The handset will be sporting very thin bezels, and will feature BoomSound stereo speakers on the front panel.
The device is also expected to feature a water and dust resistant chassis. As far as the design of the handset is concerned, rumors suggest that it will be quite similar to the HTC One series of smartphones.
The HTC O2 will be powered by Snapdragon 820 chipset, which will include a custom quad-core processor and Adreno 530 graphics. The chipset will be supported by 4 GB of RAM. The HTC O2 will also be available in two native storage versions with 64 GB and 128 GB of storage.
On its back, the device is expected to house a 20.7-megapixel shooter while its front camera will feature a 5-megapixel shooter. The phone will reportedly be equipped with a battery of 3,500 mAh capacity, and could be released in October.
The Taiwanese tech giant is also likely to release another variant of the HTC O2 in early 2016. However, it will be a smaller device featuring a 5-inch display. The handset is expected to house an even more powerful chipset than the Snapdragon 820, delivering a processing speed of around 3 GHz through its octa-core processor.
