@evleaks published a new tweet saying that HTC could be working on an upgraded version of its new flagship. Dubbed the HTC One (M8) Prime, we speculate it to be the HTC One (M8) with a more powerful spec sheet, much like what Samsung is doing with the rumored Galaxy S5 Prime. HTC's new phone could be in response to Project KQ.
What we really feel is that both companies know they could have done better with their 2014 flagship phones, and are now trying to catch up with the unannounced LG G3. Also, those who already own either of these devices are going to feel really bad if a higher-end version of their phone becomes available just 2-3 months after they bought the original. Ouch!
