Multimedia: Samsung Galaxy S5 vs HTC One M8

So we’ve had the HTC One M8 and the HTC One M8 Harman-Kardon edition. We have a Google Play Edition. And rumors say a version in plastic is due. Could we be getting even more out of the M8 line?

The latest hint dropped by @evleaks sure seems to suggest so, with the Twitter leakster saying we should be keeping a spotlight on a device codnamed the “ HTC One M8 Prime.” Sound a bit familiar?

Samsung is rumored to be bringing their own “Prime” version of the Galaxy S5, which is rumored to be bringing an even more premium experience than that of the original’s. Naturally we’d guess that the M8 Prime is looking to do the same for that particular device. Unfortunately those are the only details we have at this time.

We’re not sure what to make of all these follow-up devices so shortly after the originals launch. On one hand we’re always to get more powerful hardware and an overall better device. On the other, it’s kind of frustrating to buy a device thinking it’s top of the line only for these companies to one-up themselves just a short while later.

Perhaps we should all just skip out on buying these devices right away from here on out — either our patience is rewarded with the device we really want, or these companies’ first half financials are affected so much that they won’t want to do it again. Aaaah, who am I kidding? Us techies can’t help ourselves! Stay tuned as we look to learn more.
