This device will be a bigger than its predecessor HTC One and also a step down in design with similar features from the previous handset.

Apart from the big screen and 1080 display the handset will also features a fingerprint scanner which is apparently place below the camera lens at the back which means every time you swipe you will leave marks on your lens.
