HTC is reportedly working on a refreshed version of its flagship HTC One handset, which will sport a more powerful octa-core processor and 3GB of RAM.
The HTC One is currently considered one of the hottest high-end Android smartphones available on the market. It has won over crowds by sporting an elegant metal design and powerful specifications both on the hardware and software fronts, but a new version of the smartphone may take it to the next level.
According to a new report (Greek), the upcoming version of the HTC One will sport the same stylish metal body, but will pack an octa-core CPU and 3GB of RAM under the hood. In addition, the refreshed model would also bring some software tweaks to sweeten the deal.
For those unfamiliar with the handset, the current HTC One packs a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 paired with 2GB of RAM. It scored some impressive benchmarks with its current specifications, but if this report turns out to be true, the refreshed version will be significantly more impressive.
Other than the upgraded processor and 3GB of RAM instead of 2, the rest of the hardware is expected to remain the same for the refreshed HTC One. In other words, the new version of the smartphone would sport the same 4.7-inch display, the same 4-megapixel UltraPixel rear camera and the same 2,300 mAh battery.
The purported software tweaks, meanwhile, would reportedly include a "clear audio option," which would allegedly improve audio performance and enhance clarity during phone calls.
HTC has yet to confirm plans to launch a refreshed version of its HTC One, which means this is still in the rumor state for now. The Greek publication did, however, offer a screenshot detailing the specs, likely in a bid to boost its credibility.
On the other hand, screenshots are not all that hard to fake if you know what you're doing, which means that there's still no guarantee that this report is accurate. As always, it is advisable to take all rumors, leaks and speculations with a grain of salt until it becomes official.
