HTC Reportedly Cancels Plans To Release 5.5-Inch One M8 Prime Handset
"If you were salty at having purchased an HTC One (M8) when news of the M8 Prime hit, prepare to feel vindicated: development on Prime has been suspended indefinitely," Twitter user @evleaks posted to his website.
You can file this under "R" for "Rumor Status," but it's worth mentioning that @evleaks is often correct with his pre-release information. That's bad news if you were looking forward to what the Prime might offer, which starts with a reported 5.5-inch quad high definition (qHD) display with a 2560x1440 resolution.
It's also been rumored that the Prime would wield a high-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, a larger camera with improved optics, and 3GB of RAM, all of which would come wrapped in an aluminum-silicon hybrid chassis. That's not a bad collection of hardware.
