HTC One Gold Variant Officially UnveiledReuters

The rumoured HTC One successor, aka M8, will reportedly ship with the new v4.4 KitKat OS out-of-the box, according to says latest reports.

Popular twitter spy @evleaks (aka Evan Blass) claims that the forthcoming HTC One successor will sport a bigger display (5.0-inch full HD screen) and run on the newly unveiled KitKat OS, powered by the Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 series quad-core processor that can top maximum CPU speed up to 2.3GHz.

The specs revealed by the prolific leakster are consistent with the earlier report from Chinese website ePrice, which also revealed the never-seen-before images of the purported HTC M8.

In the pictures, the smartphone sported metal shell on the backside, with a small hole over the camera module. Many suspect the empty space may hold the fingerprint sensor, considering the fact that the HTC's recently released phablet 'One Max' boasted a square-shaped fingerprint sensor above the rear camera.

The HTC one successor is also rumoured to feature 3GB RAM capacity, Beats Audio speakers and custom-interface Sense v6.0, on top of the primary OS. However, mystery still remains whether the company will stick with the UltraPixel camera or bring in new innovative camera sensor for the new smartphone.

Word on the street is that the Taiwanese handset major is slated to launch the company's new flagship phone at the MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2014, Barcelona, Spain (24-27 February).
