Say Goodbye to the HTC One Series and Say Hello To The HTC O2

Android / Mobile / Tech

I remember buying my HTC One M7 when it first came out and thinking how beautiful it was and that the design was wonderful, plus it truly felt like a one of a kind device. Then the M8 came out last year and the M9 arrived this year. HTC is looking to end the One family name and start fresh with a new name for its flagship devices.

A report from China shows that HTC will name its next HTC device the HTC O2. Simple yes, but it can also be confused with the cell phone provider O2 in the UK. I wouldn’t take my word for this, but there might be a heated battle starting shortly for who’s going to have the rights for “O2”.

It does look like there will be two different O2 versions coming out. The main one will come with a 6 inch QHD display with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, and 4GB of RAM on board with either the option of 64 or 128GB of internal storage. There’s currently no word of expandable storage. A 3,500mAh battery is also included. The phone will also come with water and dust resistance if the rumours are true. The O2 is set to be released at the end of October of this year.

As for the other O2 version that will be released next year, it’s rumoured to be sporting a 5 inch display with a Snapdragon processor that has yet to be announced. Screen resolution is said to be 4K, but that’s taking it a little to far for such a small screen size.

Please do take all this information with a grain of salt as you are going to need it.

What do you think about HTC’s new name for their newest flagship? Think it’ll stick and be easily remembered, or will it have to be changed to something else? Leave your comment below, or on Google+, Facebook, or Twitter.
