For some time now HTC has been in a very rough spot. Its HTC One model has failed to in terms of sales despite earning praiseworthy reviews. Nonetheless, HTC has not given up hope and is working on updating this model. A new model of HTC One will soon appear in the market with some interesting tweaks.
The HTC One Refresh will carry an octa core processor. Such a CPU is bound to enhance its performance commendably. However, no particular chipset has been officially declared so far. But Samsung is the only company that has been using octa core chip as of yet and HTC would definitely not be buying it from them due to stiff competition between the two. MediaTek is another company that has announced that it is working on octa core processor. However, their chipsets are ARM Cortex A7 based which does not provide excellent performance. So, if HTC is choosing MediaTek, the low performing architecture will prove to be a bas move.
Another major change in the HTC One Refresh is that it will come with a RAM of 3 GB. In the HTC handsets, it will be the first smartphone with such a RAM. This device will also have ‘Clear Audio’ which will ensure better sound quality while making calls. It will provide supports for even more network bands than the original model. The HTC One Refresh will also feature the thinner and lighter Gorilla Glass 3 screen which will ensure maximum protection to the display against scratch.
The HTC One Refresh is likely to be announced with the One Max phablet. No other official specifications and features have been announced; however, more details will come to light as the official announcement will be made. Till then we can just wait and watch.
