HTC is working on a 64-bit smartphone with an eight-core processor, according to a post from the company on the Chinese microblogging site Weibo. The Taiwanese electronics manufacturer’s current flagship phone, the HTC One M8 features a quad-core 32-bit setup powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.3GHz.
The round corner sporting teaser device doesn’t exactly give off a high-end feel, so it’s possible that this handset could be more of a budget-friendly device, similar to HTC’s One E8 and Desire series. However, it could just be a placeholder picture until the company decides to have a more public showing. How about next month during IFA?
