New HTC flagship now called the HTC O2

HTC logoWith the HTC One M9 producing disappointing sales, HTC has seen its stock plunge to a record low. A week later, the company reported a second quarter loss, snapping a string of four consecutive profitable quarters. HTC CEO Cher Wang was so embarrassed during the subsequent stockholder's meeting that she announced that HTC would release a new redesigned flagship model.

Wang told the stockholders that HTC would be producing a "Hero" phone, which usually means a top-shelf, high-end, well spec'd device. At least one of the serial leakers on Twitter claims that the device is awesome.

Some more information about HTC's new flagship phone leaked today. Allegedly, the device will be called the HTC O2. And it will be powered by the Snapdragon 820 SoC, produced using Samsung's 14nm FinFET process. The chipset will have four custom ARM based Hydra cores developed by Qualcomm. The Snapdragon 820 will bring faster performance and improved battery life, all without running hot like the Snapdragon 810 is known to do. The phone will have an all-metal design.

The original rumors had the device arriving in October, powered by the Snapdragon 810. But today's leak changes all that. With the Snapdragon 820 expected under the hood, it now looks like the phone will be launched late in the first quarter of 2016.
