HTC’s Next Smartphone Will Be Called HTC O2; Snapdragon 820 CPU and Waterproof Certification Might Be Included

For a while we know that HTC plans to reveal a new flagship device this year in order to leave the One M9 story behind. Even if at the first, it was rumored that HTC’s new device will be called One M10, now it seems that the name has changed.


Apparently, HTC decided that the new device to be called HTC O2, a pretty interesting name that might represent this rebirth of the company through a new design language. More about this phone we get to know from China, country where several web sources received some precious information.

First, is revealed the fact that this phone will arrive first in a 6-inch variant with Quad HD panel, followed next year by a 5-inch version with same spes. HTC O2 will pack 4 GB RAM memory, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 64 or 128 GB space of internal storage and a 5-megapixel front-facing sensor.

Also, it seems that this device will bring a 20.7 megapixel rear camera, one from Sony we hope. The Chinese press sustains the fact that HTC O2 will pack a 3.500 mAh battery, but also that the stereo speakers will be kept for this one. Phone’s case will bring this time a more narrower front-facing panel with slim bezel.

In the same time, there’s some rumors according to which this phone will offer water and dust proof certification, a feature that doesn’t sounds bad at all. What do you want from this new device?

    Then make this a reality.

    Then give us some real specs

    all i can say is this render is inaccurate along with specs partially.

  • I want 3D like the Amazon fire phone on a 6 inch variant of android.

  • All I can say is that anyone under an NDA wouldn’t be able to say either way about this render, so Greg is most likely a liar. Other than that, I have loved my M8 (aside from it’s meager battery performance).

    If they really do include a water and dust-proof certification in the specs it would take away a lot of the fear I had with my phone: ruining the speakers. They are fairly large grills and a lot of water / stuff could get in all at once.

  • I think you’re alone! 🙂 3D on phones is a gimmick!

    3D servers no purpose, and drains more battery than it should. I can tell you don’t know much about phones when you mentioned one of the biggest failures in the smartphone industry.

    Doesn’t the M series have some kind of ips certification?

  • Whens Apple coming out w/ a VR Headset,…? I’ll let you get fat watching the staus quo go bye bye
