If the UK based carrier of similar name is not so much offended and the rumors from Chinese source is all true, the next flagship of HTC is going to be named HTC O2 rather than being named HTC One M10. With the IP certification, the upcoming HTC O2 will be water resistant.


The device is the successor of HTC One M9 which could not do much miracle in terms of sales and popularity. In fact the existing flagship witnessed the stock going record low. Henceforth, the company had no choice but to re-design its upcoming flagship as best as it can. To make it even more interesting, for the first time ever, the upcoming HTC O2 will be water resistant and dust resistant.

Keeping the news aside let’s take a look at its tech specs that makes it the rebirth of HTC flagship lineage.

The Powerhouse!

The HTC O2 will be backed by the Snapdragon 820 SoC manufactured with Samsung’s 14nm FinFET process. It will feature quad core processor of four custom hydra cores developed by Qualcomm. Unlike Snapdragon 810, the Snapdragon 820 will surely boost performance without much heating the device.htc-o2-will-be-water-resistant

Also, the device will have 3500 mAh battery backup with additional 1 GB RAM than its predecessor’s RAM of 3 GB.


Talking about its looks, it is going to be all metal design sporting a 6-inch QHD screen of 1440X2560 resolutions with 490 ppi density. The front face will be narrower with thin bezels on the sides. The precious front facing Boom Sound stereos may return as well. The company has tried to upgrade this version and make it different from its predecessors in every way possible.

The HTC O2 will be available on built-in 64GB and 128GB versions. It seems that it will have 20.7 megapixels rear camera along with 5 MP front camera. The phone could be released in the first quarter of 2016.
