@evleaks was kind enough to share what they call 'preliminary' specs for the sequel to the HTC One. As seen below, the M8 could be powered by some respectable hardware but with newer processors like the Snapdragon 805 showing up in devices now is certainly something to consider. Keep in mind that these specs are not final, and it was specifically noted as so by the source, so it's possible HTC could make a change before we see anything official.
- Snapdragon 800 CPU
- 5" 1080P display
- 2GB of RAM
- HTC Ultrapixel rear / 2.1mp front facing cameras
- HTC Sense 6.0 on top of 4.4 KitKat
