Although we already reported that HTC was planning to eventually announce a "premium" version of their HTC One M8, today's latest rumor suggests there won't be just one, but actually two new versions of the flagship phone. According to this new intel, HTC's premium version of the HTC One M8 will be called the HTC One M8 Plus and will include higher-end features like a QHD 2K display, a Snapdragon 805, and a waterproof metal chassis.

This isn't really much different than what we have already heard; however, the new info also includes a device called the HTC One M8 Advance. Supposedly, this will be a plastic shelled device heading to Asian markets with the same specs but a lower price. As always, take these rumors with a grain of salt, although this meal seems tasty (and viable) enough to be true.

Kind of makes upset. Why are companies releasing better versions of a phone so soon after its launch?
It puzzles me. They are going to train the buyers to wait before buying to see what else pops out, and in doing so possibly lose sales to a competitor device.
