All New HTC One (M8) shown in video next to the 2013 One
The video was originally posted by an alleged T-Mobile user, and it’s now private. However, it’s been re-uploaded, so we can still see it. The All New One is being compared to the old HTC One, and it’s clear that they’re about the same size. The video pretty much confirms most of the things we heard about the All New One until now: it has Sense 6.0 UI with Android 4.4 KitKat, on-screen buttons, MicroSD card support, a twin-sensor rear camera (which reportedly is “spectacular”) with dual-LED flash, and asymmetric dual speakers on the front.
We’re seeing many, many users interested in the new One M8, which isn’t surprising, considering the fact that the 2013 One was one of last year’s most praised smartphones. We should hear everything we need to know about it on March 25, so make sure to stick around. Until then, here’s the All New HTC One / M8 in the video that we mentioned:

How does this this phone keep getting leaked in full glory almost a month before it's supposed to be announced?
Htc is bad at keeping secrets

Still I think, HTC One is gorgeous than M8.

Agreed, they should removed the bezel with just the HTC logo, and should have keep the speakers symmetrical and the chamfered edges.
Still one of the best looking phones through

You also got to hate they changed from anodized aluminium to the cheap looking brushed aluminium. Why is Apple, Samsung and HTC doing bad than their previous flagships. D:

Nobody ever cosindered that it could be an fingerprint scaner?...

Its not if your talking about dual camera you can clearly see the inner lense
88. techaman (unregistered)
Also if they did finger print it would not be on back like the last time it would be under the HTC sign on the front

I will be more to the point, how does a kid I can barely speak get elite phone especially one that is this amazing but still this is the phone that we all wanted it is clear that HTC listened to the customer and consumer and did what was needed to make a great high end phones Thank You and this will be my new phone no longer Samsung product

Wow... again a beautiful phone ftom htc... but whats the difference in design? almost the same... except, metallic color is making it more elegant... I hope camera will not suck this time

This idiot only posted this video because he wants to be famous. no one can't tell if this the M8
2. LiyanaBG (Posts: 307; Member since: 07 Nov 2013)
very beautiful phone HTC. i will buy two he said the camera is amazing.

The phone looks nice, but seems like a step down in looks/attractiveness from the original HTC One. A bit too round and the finish on the back looks cheaper. Also the front speakers, judging by the review, don't sound nearly as robust as they do in the original One. A little disappointing overall, IMO. Not much to interest people to the new One if they didn't like the old One...
3. rodneyej1 (Posts: 3540; Member since: 06 Jul 2013)
Could this be the most leaked device since the 1520??....
5. rodneyej1 (Posts: 3540; Member since: 06 Jul 2013)
Wait, the Icon!.. What am I talking about..
6. rodneyej1 (Posts: 3540; Member since: 06 Jul 2013)
We can't judge that until we see some actually camera comparisons done by unbiased testers.. IOW, not PS's camera comparison.
7. miguelmeza14 (Posts: 55; Member since: 20 Apr 2013)
I think it looks gorgeous, regardless of the bottom bezel.
33. phonejustice (Posts: 12; Member since: 26 Feb 2014)
on screen button is just so annoying when u have the bottom HTC branding bezzel :( this phone is sweet but just the bottom branding from HTC..
9. nctx77 (Posts: 495; Member since: 03 Sep 2013)
Now that's a leak. The whole damn phone plus a review lol!
21. Doakie (Posts: 1251; Member since: 06 May 2009)
This was the worst "review" I've ever seen. It's almost like he didn't look at it until the camera was rolling.
66. RuiBacelar (Posts: 131; Member since: 25 Feb 2014)
The phone seems nice but also too laggy, I hope they fix a lot of things. The original One seemed better overhall except for the Camera.

That's what happens when you're Walter White's son. You get whatever the hell you want.
11. LiyanaBG (Posts: 307; Member since: 07 Nov 2013)
guys is this color dark sliver or grey is very beautiful color i like it alot?
36. newbey123 (Posts: 408; Member since: 19 Mar 2012)
This is the color I want! Absolutely gorgeous yet so powerful. Hurry and release HTC, you already have my money!
12. baldilocks (Posts: 507; Member since: 14 Dec 2008)
The logo placement and bezel are butt ugly. I guess both Samsung and HTC have taken a step back this year.
20. PapaSmurf (Posts: 8282; Member since: 14 May 2012)
Trolling because your views are different from his. Logic.
39. baldilocks (Posts: 507; Member since: 14 Dec 2008)
I think my 5 years of my commenting here trumps you a little bit, kid. Design wise, both phones are a step in the wrong direction in a few different ways.
54. techaman (unregistered)
if you want to talk to logical all phones doesn't matter what year are all the same for the last 5 years if you change a corner and making plenty or rounded the phone is still rectangular and the same there is no new design nor will there be one for the next five years until we have true fold technology
13. alrightihatepickingusernames (Posts: 358; Member since: 29 Dec 2013)
I didn't watch the whole video because I couldn't bear the stuttering, but the thing looks gorgeous. I liked the backing on the One but the M8 look better IMO, kind of reminds me of a stainless steel kitchen appliance. I think it has more character.
15. baldilocks (Posts: 507; Member since: 14 Dec 2008)
This is also the most annoying video I have ever seen.
17. Killua (Posts: 270; Member since: 25 Nov 2013)
I love the internet, you asked for leak other than photos and you got it in the next day.
Back to the topic, so ... the new features are pretty much only the New Camera? And I'd have to agree with the reviewer, I like the One's produced sounds better than the M8 from the vid.
55. techaman (unregistered)
I don't think he had the beats turned on also its a Dev phone many months old so I don't think it is going to have the latest software (beats) they hyc said it had all new amplifiers and an all-new sound with new algorithms
18. Rydsmith (Posts: 126; Member since: 20 Jun 2012)
Why do I feel like this is some executive's kid that took the phone and posted this online?
34. Napalm_3nema (Posts: 928; Member since: 14 Jun 2013)
No doubt. He needs to calm down and just show the phone. It does look a lot better, though, from what I can see.
50. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4010; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
I muted the video after about 1 minute, that made it much better. The M8 looks good though, and I like the new camera UI. I can't wait until March 25th.
23. Taters (Posts: 2942; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
How is that similar size? That thing is huge. Same size of the HTC One with a huge speck case on. This thing might be bigger than the GS5 which is quite sad actually....
46. THE_Hulk (Posts: 55; Member since: 09 Feb 2014)
And the camera placement is also rubbish... It will get scretched very easily IMO.
51. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4010; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
It looks marginally larger than the One without the case on. The case on the One made the M8 look smaller in terms of width, but I couldn't see the height. I'd say it's about the same size as the GS5, look how much bigger the GS5 is than the One;
But the GS5 is water and dust resistant, so it has a reason for it's added dimensions. The M8's only excuse is it's speakers, but that's only for height, so it shouldn't be wider.
24. CX3NT3_713 (Posts: 1841; Member since: 18 Apr 2011)
,,,,....... Yup... It's an HTC phone.....
25. jove39 (Posts: 1279; Member since: 18 Oct 2011)
So this is kind of let down compared to m7 design...that uneven (top & bottom) speaker grill looks bad...and as a design improvement...htc should have removed logo from front!
27. taz89 (Posts: 2014; Member since: 03 May 2011)
Wonder if the m8 will get the same backlash as the s5 for being a "incremental" update. Anyone honest here will admit in terms of update the m8 isn't that big of an update over the original one from the leaks so far. Maybe March 25th it will be a different story.
32. Leonis (Posts: 334; Member since: 08 Jan 2014)
The camera alone is worth an upgrade.. what the hell are you talking about? It will also have SD card slot. now 2 very important things. Better battery life? 3? And don't forget better specs.
37. taz89 (Posts: 2014; Member since: 03 May 2011)
The s5 too has a new camera with new technology. Already has sd card slot, water and dust Resistance, Better battery life and better spec. Don't want to argue about which is better phone. People will buy what's best for them. Just pointing out the new one itself isn't a massive improvement itself over the original one. If the leaks are right and it's looking like the new one spec is 2gb ram with the 800/801 snapdragon cpu same as the s5 so if that's considered massive than it must be considered massive for the s5. Can't have it both ways by saying it's a crap upgrade for company x but company y it's a big upgrade even though it's the same spec.
67. Leonis (Posts: 334; Member since: 08 Jan 2014)
Samsung is made of plastic, has touchwiz, a ton of bloatware, last S4 lagged, is not fully water proof like Z2, has less memory with 2GB, useless features like heart sensor, cost more and has a lot more potential to lagged again because of touchwiz.
Its not the same spec and same phone. Very very different. Z2 is an huge upgrade from even from an S4.
73. taz89 (Posts: 2014; Member since: 03 May 2011)
Pretty much everything said is subjective. The only thing it has more is extra ram and battery and if that considered a huge upgrade then OK. About the battery, more don't mean better in this case. For example by Sony official statement the z2 is capable of 6-7 hours of video, the s5 with 400mah less gets 12 hour. I would go into how the lag issues of the s4 were sorted with updates but won't or the fact that the os has been reworked with less bloat and now out the box comes with 10.7gb storage, the z2 had about 11.5gb so not much difference there. Price well it depends where you from, I think in the UK the price are same. As for the waterproof stuff, the s5 is fully waterproof upto 1m of water for 30minutes, the difference is z2 can go 1.5m of water.
76. Leonis (Posts: 334; Member since: 08 Jan 2014)
We will see what phone will be the best when it gets reviewed. Very much as you said is personal choice. I know I wont go for plastic when I pay so much for a phone and never for touchwiz either because it looks ugly in my eyes. Let see how S5 handle the lagg this time.
28. cornerofthemoon (Posts: 505; Member since: 20 Apr 2010)
HTC should just go ahead and announce the thing. The cat is out of the bag and running in heavy city traffic.
31. Leonis (Posts: 334; Member since: 08 Jan 2014)
They will in 25th. You think most people are watching leaks? I didn't knew anything about HTC m7 until it was shown for everyone and in the store. And I read about phones last year occasionally.
44. PapaSmurf (Posts: 8282; Member since: 14 May 2012)
I find that somewhat hard to believe lol.
68. Leonis (Posts: 334; Member since: 08 Jan 2014)
Well I knew some rumors that m7 was a new flagship but I only saw the real phone when it was announced. I never saw any leaks of it. This year has been different though because I follow phonearena and many tech channels on youtube. Something i didn't do much 2012 and first half of 2013.
That tell you how much the general consumers cares about leaks like this. Only tech and phone nerds actually know about hot the phone will be before it comes out in the store.
29. Leonis (Posts: 334; Member since: 08 Jan 2014)
This is HTC doing marketing. I like it more than traditional marketing ad. Leaks are seen mostly from tech geeks. The majority of consumers wont know about leaks of the phone, they will only know about a new phone when it is released and that is fact!
