The HTC One’s successor will dual cameras for different lighting and a fingerprint app

HTC LogoAccording to the latest reports from Forbes, the successor to the HTC One will include different camera lenses for low and high lighting in addition to a fingerprint app. The device could be aptly named the HTC One Two – yes, I’m serious – and could start shipping by March.

Specs include a 4.9-inch screen, an unknown Qualcomm processor, and hopefully the latest version of Android. It is expected to be priced off-contract at around $600. We also know from a previous WiFi certification that it will be compatible with next-generation ac WiFi, and infamous leaker evleaks has predicted that it will be on all four major US carriers by the end of the first quarter this year.

It’s unclear whether or not this will be enough to help HTC turn things around. Competition is increasingly stiff as innovation in the smartphone realm becomes more difficult to achieve, and it becomes more difficult to stand out. Hopefully, HTC’s got even more up its sleeves, but we’ll know more for sure in March.

    I hope that is not the name of the phone, perhaps the HTC One Squared ( idk how to make a squared symbol on the Google keyboard).

    • If anything just do a ^2. It’s one way to say squared or the power of 2. But at the same time there is no point to 1^2 because 1*1 no matter how many times is 1.

    I believe HTC put themselves into a corner with this “One” branding.

    • Well obviously the follow on will be the “New One” which will be followed the next year by the “Newer One”. After that, Sprint will dump the whole “One” brand for something unrelated.

      It will be the HTC One again. If it needs to be distinguished from the prior version you can refer to it as the latest HTC One, or the new HTC One, or the 2014 HTC One.. What’s wrong with that? Why does each new model upgrade need a new name? A new Corvette is just a Corvette, not a Corvette 7…

      It would be idiotic to call it HTC One Two or anything like that. I’ve cringed every time I’ve seen a rumor article saying that.

      Dual lenses not cameras, one for low lighting and one for too much light, I hope this is to get rid of the ultrapixel camera’s low resolution and focus of 15MP for printing out photographs.

    Not to be picky but: “The HTC One’s successor will dual cameras” when I think you meant “offer dual camers” perhaps?

    HTC One+ sounds like it’s just a mild refresh of the HTC One (like the HTC One X+ was a refresh of the HTC One X). Why not HTC Two, or HTC One 2?

      Look at me. The pot calling the kettle black.

      I couldn’t even spell cameras correctly. Hahaha.

  • From what I’ve been reading, so far, they are considering it to be a refresh. Maybe just a faster processor, camera tweaks, larger screen and Sense 5.5. Although this sounds like it would warrant a completely new name, the general design will probably stay the same. I guess we’ll find out soon enough. Some of those other names sound kind of comical to me like the HTC ONE 2.
