The HTC Ones were headed into double digits for the next generation after this year’s One M9, and the company has apparently decided to put an end to its confusing naming scheme. If the newly surfaced reports out of China are to be trusted, the next flagship from the struggling Taiwanese manufacturer will be named simply HTC O2.
Now, that may not be the wisest decision for the UK market, where carrier O2 might have a say on the matter. The rest of the world, however, should have no problems embracing the new name, which is also reported to deliver a proper hardware upgrade, unlike the current generation flagship.
The latest info states that the O2 will sport a 6-inch QHD display, and will be powered by a Snapdragon 820 chipset. This is where the rumor becomes contradicting, as we already know that piece of silicon is expected to make it to mass-produced devices no earlier than the beginning of next year, while the O2 is said to be arriving as early as the end of October.
