Octa-core HTC One with 3 GB of RAM could be on the way

HTC has been in a tough spot for many quarters now. The One has been praised by many, but sales numbers have failed to impress. But the Taiwanese company isn’t giving up. In fact, it appears that it’s already working on an update to the One. Don’t think about this necessarily as the One’s successor, but more in terms of what last year’s One X+ was to the One X – a minor revision, yet one that comes with some interesting new innards.

The new HTC One is apparently going to sport an octa-core processor. This information comes via a leaked image sent to Greek website Tech Community. This image purportedly depicts the About screen for this model, and ‘Octa-core’ is clearly listed in the CPU field.

HTC One octa-core 3 GB of RAM

As nice as this may be to believe, keep in mind that it could be a fake. After all, such screens are incredibly easy to forge. Perhaps adding to this possibility is the fact that no specific chipset is listed – ‘octa-core’ is a pretty vague entry for that CPU field.

Assuming there will be an eight-core processor inside the next One, who will be making it? One thing’s for sure: it won’t be Qualcomm, since the current market leader in mobile chipsets thinks octa-core is just a fad. So who will it be? The only company to put forth an octa-core chip so far has been Samsung, and we’re pretty sure HTC won’t be buying from them (it’s never happened before, and given the direct competition between the companies, the Koreans have no reasons to sell to HTC).

MediaTek is the only other chip maker who has already announced that it’s working on an octa-core mobile solution, but its chip is going to be based on ARM’s Cortex-A7 design, which isn’t the most high-performing. So it would be odd for HTC to choose a lower-performing architecture for the One refresh than what’s used in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 that’s in the original.

Aside from the supposed octa-core CPU, we’re also going to see 3 GB of RAM make an appearance for the first time in an HTC handset with this new device. Furthermore, this ‘One+’ comes with a feature called ‘Clear Audio’ which makes calls sound better (noise-cancelling mics?), and it should have support for even more bands than its predecessor, covering almost all possible networks in the world. Finally, the screen should sport Gorilla Glass 3, which is thinner and lighter than the 2nd-generation glass that’s seen in the currently selling One.

The new and improved One could be announced alongside the One Max phablet, but don’t hold your breath just yet. While a refreshed One would fit with past HTC actions, this supposed octa-core processor that’s said to be used is a great mystery at the moment. We’ll let you know if we find out more about the new One.

    The space vehicle was a part reusable launch system and orbital ballistic capsule operated by the U.S. National physical science and house Administration (NASA) for human voyage missions. The system combined rocket
    launch, orbital ballistic
    capsule, and re-entry spaceplane with standard add-ons. the primary of 4 orbital take a look

    occurred in 1981 resulting in operational flights starting in 1982. it
    absolutely was used on a complete of a hundred
    thirty five missions
    from 1981 to 2011 all launched from the Kennedy house Center, Florida.

    Major missions enclosed launching varied satellites, celestial body probes,
    the astrophysicist house Telescope (HST), conducting house science experiments, and constructing and union the International space laboratory. Major parts enclosed the orbiters, retrievable boosters, external tanks, payloads, and
    supporting infrastructure. 5 space-worthy orbiters were built; 2 were destroyed in mission accidents.The space vehicle at launch consisted of the satellite Vehicle
    (OV), one external tank (ET), and 2 Solid Rocket Boosters (SRBs). it absolutely was launched vertically sort of a standard rocket with thrust from the 2 SRBs and 3 main engines. throughout launch, the external tank provided fuel for
    the orbiter’s main engines. The SRBs and ET were jettisoned before the satellite reached orbit. At the conclusion of the
    orbiter’s house mission, it unemployed its thrusters to drop out of orbit and move into the lower atmosphere. The satellite decelerated within the atmosphere before flying sort of a heavier-than-air craft however with reaction system thrusters before landing on a protracted runway.

    Even on the original One, the processor simply says Quadcore so the lack of description still fits
