Phone was supposed to feature bleeding edge components

Last year's HTC One Max by Taiwan's HTC Corp. (TPE:2498) wasn't exactly a all-star in terms of sales, but its rumored successor, the One M8 Prime, seemed like it might offer some cause for excitement.  The smartphone would purportedly pack a 5.5-inch QHD (Quad High Definition; 2560x1440px) display, top-of-the-line Qualcomm Inc. (QCOM) Snapdragon 810, larger/improved camera, and 3 GB of RAM.
What's more, the handset was rumored to pack an aluminum-silicon hybrid body -- definitely high-end stuff.
But top Android and Windows Phone leaker @evleaks is sharing some bad news.  He claims that in a surprising move HTC has indefinitely "suspended" M8 Prime development.

The move is quite disappointing.  Even Evan Nelson Blass felt the pain as frustrated commenters began to vent at him:

If the device is indeed cancelled, that leaves just LG Electronics Inc.'s (KRX:066570)(KRX:066575) LG G3 (official) and the rumored Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime (not-yet-announced) in the 5.5-inch Android device range.
