The HTC One M8 Prime never made much sense as a rumored phone, and the original source of those rumors now says that the device has been put on hold for unknown reasons. A 360-degree render of the One M8 Prime popped up only a few weeks ago and quickly appeared to be an even better version of HTC's flagship smartphone, but it no longer appears that the phone will be released any time soon.
Evleaks, who has been beating the M8 Prime drum from the beginning, now reports that HTC has ceased development on the phone. He tweeted:
"If you were salty at having purchased an HTC One (M8) when news of the M8 Prime hit, prepare to feel vindicated: development on Prime has been suspended indefinitely."
There's no reason cited for the supposed halt in development, but it's not uncommon for companies to abandon projects for any reason ranging from changing market conditions to executives deciding it's not worth completing. Whatever the reason, the M8 prime rumors can finally come to an end.
