According to a rumour, HTC will be cooking up an upgrade to the One this 2013. The report is also saying that the Taiwanese firm is already talking about the devices successor and has been codenamed the M8. It will be launched in 2014.

Pocket-lint reports, “HTC is planning to release an updated version of the HTC One later in 2013, according to a source familiar with the matter. The source also confirmed that, internally, the 2014 flagship HTC One model will go under the M8 codename.

“Starting with the plans for 2014, our source reports that HTC is already in discussions regarding the HTC M8, although it is using different codenames for the device with external contacts - presumably to keep things under wraps and try to cut down on some of the leaks.”

It adds, “However, we’ve also been tipped off that HTC is looking at releasing an updated HTC One. While there’s currently a run of software updates going through, it looks like HTC might be making some more-serious internal hardware changes to update the current handset.”

For now, these are all just rumours. We’ll update the story once we hear an official announcement from HTC.
