HTC apparently needs an M8 Prime to take on the Galaxy S5

Samsung is rumored to be prepping a Galaxy S5 Prime model that will feature a better screen and processor, but the company may not be the only one working on a Prime version of its high-end 2014 handset. HTC is now said to have an HTC One (M8) Prime model in the works as well, although it’s not clear what such a device will have to offer.

The HTC One (M8) is already one of the best handsets of this year, packing high-end specs and, more importantly, impressive build quality. But @evleaks, a leaker with an accurate track record when reporting on unreleased mobile devices, teased the new handset on Twitter. “Forget the Ace,” he wrote. “What y’all are really waiting for is codenamed M8 Prime.”
