The HTC One 2 or the HTC M8 (if we're going by the codename) is set to be the next flagship smartphone from HTC replacing the award-winning HTC One.
Whilst little is known about HTC's next flagship smartphone there are rumours that can help us create a picture of what HTC will be looking to launch when it takes on the smartphone world next year.
With the company already confirming earlier in the year that it would be focusing on reducing its range whilst building up its quality it goes without saying that the One 2 will be the pinnacle of what the company can achieve.
Read on to see the latest rumours, leaks and our own opinion on what we think HTC will be including with the next-generation HTC One 2.
It goes without saying that this will be a HTC One with a 2014 release date. For starters it's in keeping with the annual update schedule that most of the leading smartphone manufacturers keep to.
Secondly HTC has only just launched the HTC One max which has been built using the same design language as the original HTC One which means that if the company is looking at a serious design change then it'll give the original handsets time to sell first.
That said MWC is just on the other side of Christmas and it has become the launching point for many of the big smartphone and tablet launches including the Sony Xperia Z tablet as well as the Huawei Ascend P2.
Lest we also forget that MWC 2012 saw the unveiling of the uber-powerful HTC One X so all in all keep MWC in the calendar.
So far this is the first bit of solid proof we've had that HTC is working on the next version of the HTC One. According to evleaks the company is working with a new flagship smartphone codenamed the HTC M8 (the HTC One was the 'M7') and that it would launch sporting a brand-new version of Sense, HTC's skinned UI.
With HTC confirming that it would be bringing Android 4.4 KitKat to its current range of HTC One smartphones it seems logical to assume that HTC Sense 6.0 will in fact be running on the next version of Android.
There's no word on how the UI would look but unless HTC is planning a huge design overhaul expect a more advanced and easier to use version of the current Sense which means improved BlinkFeed along with integration of Android's new features.
This would mean you'll get the same improved Caller ID functionality which uses the Google Maps Business listings to find contact information if your phone doesn't recognise the number.
This is something that we can almost certainly tick off from the start, specs wise there's no word on actual hardware but considering how much noise HTC has made about the UltraPixel camera on its current generation it would be a serious move by the company to not include its famed UltraPixel sensor.
One piece of hardware that we'd really like to see implemented on the next HTC One 2 is a fingerprint scanner. Whilst Apple nailed the technology with its Touch ID sensor on the iPhone 5s we were far less impressed with HTC's implementation of the tech in the HTC One max.
Hopefully HTC won't ditch the idea as the HTC One max offered a lot of features with its fingerprint scanner that the iPhone didn't, instead they need to perfect the hardware itself and then integrate it into the smartphone better in a way that feels far more natural.
