It looks like the rumors and leaks surrounding the HTC M8 are beginning to pick up a bit. In recent weeks we have seen some images and also some specs surface online. As of today, we are seeing a bit more on the specs. The details are coming by way of AnTuTu, which means we are also getting a look at what is said to be a benchmark for the handset.
To begin with, the benchmark is shown to be for the HTC 0P6B120, which when connected with another bit from AnTuTu — that shows the handset to be the HTC M8. According to AnTuTu, the handset scored a 36062, which has it sitting with some other top-tier devices such as the Galaxy Note 3. The screenshot of the score was discovered and shared by Blog of Mobile, however there is another screenshot floating around that connects the two.
The second screenshot was recently shared on Twitter by @stagueve, who is Steve Hemmerstoffer from Nowhereelese.fr. Anyway, this image also references the HTC 0P6B120 model number, however it also dives further into the specs. Some of these we saw last week. Notably, details of the display and processor, which are showing as a 5-inch (1920 x 1080) and Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8974AB.
In addition, this time around we are seeing details suggesting the HTC M8 will be running Android 4.4 Kit Kat and sporting a 4.0-megapixel UltraPixel camera on the back along with a 2.1 megapixel front-facing camera, Adreno 330 graphics, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage space. Those familiar with the specs of the currently available HTC One will notice the some of these step up, while others remain the same.
For comparison, the HTC One features a 4.7-inch 1080p display and Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor with 2GB of RAM. This means a small step up in terms of display size and what looks like it will be a decent step up in processing power. Perhaps the big problem though, those specs are looking rather similar to what we already have with the Nexus 5.
