HTC One 2 Specs Confirmed, Device to Feature 4MP Camera, Snapdragon 801 Chip

The HTC One 2 specs were confirmed in a report that surfaced earlier this week.

The site GSM Arena received a sale guide for the handset along with a partial spec sheet that reveals what the new device will actually pack at launch.

The All New HTC One will come with a display that is 0.3-inches larger than the original version. It will also pack a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 16GB of internal storage with a microSD slot, 2600mAh battery, a 4-Ultrapixel main camera with a 5-megapixel at the front.

The site also listed a few new features including Motion Launch that allows users to answer calls by putting the phone to their ear, a swipe that wakes the phone up, a double tap that also wakes the phone to see time, weather and reminders, and a selective focus feature.

Anticipation for the upcoming HTC One 2 is being stirred up by all of these recent leaks, according to HTC Americas President Jason Mackenzie.

He appeared on CNBC's "Fast Money" yesterday afternoon to discuss the HTC One's status as phone of the year for 2013 and the company's future plans.

The interviewer brought up the frequent number of leaks regarding the HTC One 2 and Mackenzie followed it up by stating that he wouldn't comment except for acknowledging the leaks as a clear indicator that people are really interested in the next-gen model.

Various HTC One 2014 pictures leaked over this past weekend revealing the appearance of the device, its wallpapers and cases.

@evleaks posted up images of covers for the smartphone that come in different colors and have tiny holes. The cover will protect the entire body including the screen and will feature a light display that will show the time on the front.

The leaker also claims that the HTC One will have a Google Play Edition, however, there are no details on it at this time.
