Judge Hints The Arrival of HTC M8 in the UK

HTC M8U.K. judge ruled recently that HTC is no longer able to sell the HTC One Mini in the country, due to infringement on Nokia’s patent. HTC argued the infringing component is actually embedded inside Qualcomm’s hardware component.

The Taiwan-based company is ordered to pay Nokia licensing fees and it agrees to stop shipping more One Mini units into the United Kingdom until the company can resolve the case. This would mean that we would see the eventual shortages of prepaid HTC One Mini in the UK. In its appeal, HTC may argue that the ban on sales would be an overkill, because the infringing part is just a small component.

However, one big news is that the U.K. judge, Richard Arnold revealed that the HTC M8 will arrive in February or March in the UK. Many have assumed that the HTC M8 is actually the successor of the original HTC One, which was also called the HTC M7. HTC’s upcoming flagship will be equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, 5-inch fullHD display, 4Mp UltraPixel rear-facing camera and 2GB of RAM. Judge Richard Arnold also said that HTC doesn’t contradict the possible release date of HTC M8 and it won’t contain any chip that infringes Nokia’s patent.
