UPDATE: HTC M8 Home Screen leaked. Leaked front photo of HTC M8 could be fake.
The anticipated HTC M8 appears again and this time we get to see its face from another fresh round of leaked shots. If you’re expecting an all new design, you could be disappointed as HTC has pretty much retained a lot of design similarities of its current HTC One. The notable difference is the departure of capacitive home and back buttons as the M8 will be using on-screen buttons instead.
The 2 leaked pics from a Russian website also reveals a collapsible on-screen buttons which can be either shown or hidden away when not required, probably through swiping from the edge. The awesome Boom Sound front facing stereo speakers appears to be retained as well with the similar looking grill design.
In terms of naming, the new HTC M8 is speculated to be called HTC One 2 or HTC One+. To the naked eye, the new model may look like an incremental upgrade like the HTC One X to the One X+. In reality, the M8 is more than just a model refresh as it will feature a larger 5″ display that’s possibly doing QHD (2560×1440) and runs on a current Snapdragon 800 processor. Another leaked photo revealed yesterday also confirms a twin Ultra-pixel camera set up that’s assisted with dual LED flash lights.
The HTC M8 is now expected to be launched in March at a separate New York event. Head after the break for another shot of the front with the on-screen buttons displayed.
