    Why not call it One X2?

    That makes sense, but it would just get too confusing, because then you'd have the One X2, the One S2, etc.

    I like the HTC 8X and HTC DNA design but for me nothing will beat the One X.

    The HTC One X on design point between the One X and the One is that the X could not be seen as the predecessor. I say this in the perspective of mainstream consumer. Who are not tech savvy. The consumer knows very little of the One X because of it's exclusivity and being over shadowed by the S3. These factors lead to reason why HTC was not concern with continuing the X monarch as the device did not set a president. Without the president set by the One X then name is not yet recognizable so why carry name over to next generation.

    That pic looks incredibley fake. It looks misaligned and just not something that would not be characteristic. The big names are saying it is from a reliable sources though...

    Assuming there is some truth to it:
    Why so freaking much bezel? Can someone please tell me that. What is the point of having a phone that is thin as a sheet of paper if it is wide as a surfboard. Forget not being able to reach conners with your thumb. At this rate we wont be about to reach across just to the other side. Make it thicker. It will be ok. Just make the bezel go away.

    The htc in the middle is odd as well. I wonder what all it does?

    Front speakers are cool i guess.

    Sense is looking better. More integrated and coherent.

    Why SO much bezel? WHY? Taht alone will ruin the device.

    Looks too similar to the iPhone. I've had HTC devices since I started using Android, but this might be the first time I seriously look at another brand.

    I see your point but honestly I think the best move would be to come up with an all new brand name. One vs one series is going to confuse anyone who hasn't followed Mobile technology and honestly, One is a terrible name because they can't carry it on like "iphone" or "galaxy s". What's next year's phones going to be called? Two? One II?

    I know they don't have the pull that Samsung does to have one brand name across all carriers but there's ways around it. Samsung launched 4 different original Galaxy S phones in the us, and they didn't have the pull to do what they are doing now, so what did they do? They kept the Galaxy S branding. My Captivate for instance, had "Galaxy S" imprinted on the battery cover, and had the galaxy s boot animation. It was well known the Captivate was a galaxy S phone, even if it wasn't identical to the GT-i9000.

    HTC is supposedly going to use One.

    Samsung is using Galaxy S (I, II, III, and probably IV) and Galaxy Note (1 and 2)
    Apple is using iPhone (none, 3G, 3GS, 4, 4S, 5, and probably 5S)

    I would expect HTC to still have a tag after One though. If not, this is going to be messy for them.

    It's really what htc is missing. Me I won't buy one again regardless because they are a nightmare to develop for, but in terms of general public they are doing the right things just missing out on the name branding. Before the galaxy s, it didn't matter so much, HTC was the #1 android manufacturer, and in general a safe bet if you wanted a high end android phone, but now not so much.

    Honestly it might be too late, but I'll admit I'm surprised they survived 2012, really thought we'd hear about an another company acquiring them by December.

    What tag? It's not going to be numeric. I think they should just drop the One moniker and pick another name.

    The HTC "One" I agree is not a name suited to try to use for a series of devices.

    Is anyone else disappointed in the rumored S4 processor? Isn't that the same processor running in the One X on AT&T? Would it be too soon to hope for an A15 chipset?

    I don't know about the one x+(which I think has the tegra?), but the m7 will have the quad core s4 similar to the dna and nexus4. It's more or less the fastest processor yet used and is clocked at 1.7, others have been at 1.5

    This was qualcomm's solution to not wanting to water on the a15 and to have something to fill the void.

    To sum, I am in no way disappointed. A newer a15 would be awesome, but the faster version of an already proven processor is fine with me for now. In six months it would be a different story for a new phone.

    I guess that's the problem for me, I would like to purchase the m7 and be satisfied for at least a year, but I know when an A15 variant comes out later this year ill bend and buy that one too. Question is will I be able to wait until then and not buy the m7.

    Well I can't answer that for you, but the one who waits for the next best thing never buys anything in this market lol.

    The way I look at it is nothing in the next year is going to come out that that processor can't handle great. It already runs the dna flawlessly from what I have seen. And that is at 1080p and a mountain of bloat on board.

    The only thing the that the a15 cores might be able to achieve in this first year that is significant is the battery life. But that could be out weighed with the lcd3 tech that the m7 will have that I am not sure the other manufacturers are going to be using.

    I and a side note, I stopped by Verizon today and looked at the dna. The screen is the BEST on the market hands down. Nothing can touch the beauty and clarity. It alone will be enough to get the m7 if it's the same.

    Something minor that I would love to see on this upcoming HTC one device is the power button on the side of the phone instead of the top. With phones getting larger, and larger it's much harder to reach the power button one handed when it's located at the top of the device. Samsung got this right when they put the power button on the side of the GS3.

    I agree. When you start getting phones that are physically over 5.25" (h) x 2.75" (w), putting the power button on the side vs. the top makes sense.

    Can't fault the logic, but will take some getting used to after having it on top for so long. Every time I pick up a GS3 or my brother's MAXX, I just naturally grab the top looking for the power button.

    I totally do this too. Every single phone u touched in Verizon yesterday I groped around the top at one point or another lol. I would however get used to it on the side and probably like it better.

    From the video posted by HTC, this looks like the real deal. I still say that the screen portion on this pic is fake photoshop, but the overal device design looks to be true. I just really hope the bezel is kept down and it is not quite as tall as it looks.
