article imageHTC One M8 Prime development suspended

By James Walker     May 31, 2014 in Technology
The rumoured premium HTC handset, the One M8 Prime, has reportedly been axed. According to noted reliable tipster evleaks, the upper-class successor to the One M7 Max has had its development program "suspended indefinitely."
The device was purported to feature a Snapdragon 810 processor and 3GB of RAM with a huge 2560x1440, 5.5-inch screen encased in a unique, aluminium-silicon composite body to give it that premium phablet feel.
A series of recent leaks have exposed many features of the supposedly now dropped handset including an enlarged camera lens that pointed towards better photo-taking capabilities than those already found on the standard One M8.
Expected to compete against Samsung's Galaxy S5 Prime and LG's recently-launched G3, there does not seem to be an immediate reason for cancelling the device. Perhaps the move was influenced by the decision of some of the mobile networks in the UK not to sell the G3 due to its size and being "hard to sell" but this seems rather unlikely due to how far the Prime got into its development. With no official announcement from HTC to either confirm the existence or abandoning of the device, we will have to wait to see if today's reports by evleaks on Twitter prove to be true or not.
