After Samsung’s Galaxy S5, the HTC M8 is the 2nd most-expected smartphone of the start of 2014. In truth, the hype created across the HTC One successor could be an indication that Samsung’s flagship may have as a minimum one robust competitor this yr.
After we’ve heard some time in the past that the HTC M8 may well be the corporate’s first software to come back with on-monitor buttons and that it could possibly arrive with twin-LED flash and two cameras on the again, now we’ve got a few leaked photographs to verify that.
The most recent batch of alleged HTC M8 images have hit the net courtesy of NowhereElse.fr and they confirm at least three of the rumors that made headlines over the past few weeks.
The image showing the phone’s back reveals that the M8 might bring two cameras and a two-tone flash, similar to the one used by Apple’s iPhone 5S and other devices. The leaked photos also confirm a rumor started by @evleaks a few days ago: that the HTC M8 will look strikingly similar to its predecessor, the HTC One.
The rumor mill also speculated that the HTC M8 will come with on-screen navigation buttons and the below photos seem to confirm that as well. What’s very interesting about the alleged M8 caught on camera, is that it still has that HTC logo between the screen and the speakers, which is just wasted space since the capacitive buttons have been ditched. There are two theories to sustain that HTC logo: we are either looking at an HTC M8 prototype or at a standard HTC One running Sense 6 (with the capacitive buttons turned off).
It’s quite obvious that the smartphone caught on camera is running Android 4.4 KitKat and the new Sense 6 version, given by way of the white iconography of the standing bar and the clear standing and nav bars.
Reuters suggested not too long ago, quoting HTC’s executives, that the invites for the HTC M8 launch experience will likely be despatched by means of the Taiwan-primarily based cellphone maker in about two weeks. Which means that, as rumored, we would possibly see the HTC M8 in flesh in late March. On condition that Samsung’s Galaxy S5 will arrive on February 24 and that Sony may additionally introduce its 2014 flagship at MWC, the subsequent couple of months might be a pleasure to the Android lovers.
