Industry analysts are claiming that the upcoming HTC M8 (the replacement for last year’s HTC One) will feature “separate camera lenses for low and high lighting.” Previous HTC M8 rumors suggested that the new 2014 flagship device would be equipped with an updated UltraPixel camera sensor, which made its debut on the HTC One in 2013. We do not know how the separate camera lenses on the HTC M8 would work and what effect they would have on the image quality of the phone.

Some other flying HTC M8 rumors point towards the fact that HTC M8 specifications will include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 processor, 5-inch 1080p display, 2GB RAM, UltraPixel rear camera, 2.1MP front-facing camera, Wi-Fi802.11a/b/g/n/ac, KitKat (the same 4.4.2 building being prepped for HTC’s One series phones) and Sense 6.0.

Reports suggest that the smartphone is expected to feature a 4.9-inch display with a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset under the hood. Looking at earlier rumors, HTC One Two might come with support for 1080p resolution or 2K resolution which is going to be the future, along with a Snapdragon 800 chipset on board. There’s no take on the RAM, but we’re guessing it should be 3GB as that’s what should be a part of flagship devices. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 already features 3GB RAM, and is an amazing device. In terms of software, HTC One successor is expected to run Android 4.4 KitKat with the latest Sense 6.0 UI out of the box.

The handset is rumored to launch by the end of first quarter of 2014, and is expected to hit all major US carriers. There’s a possibility that HTC may showcase the successor at the MWC 2014 event  in February with a launch in March. We just that that it brings an end to the lighting frustrations of smartphone cameras.
