Notice the new element between the front speaker and camera
There is another detail, though, that makes us think this image may be very close to the real HTC M8. It is the detail right between the upper front speaker and the front camera. This looks like an LED light for notifications of sorts, but whatever it is, fact remains that it is something new, something that has not been on the original HTC One, and with its weird elongated shape we don’t think we have seen this on any smartphone so far. Why is it important? Simple, it would take a very creative person to fake something like this. Of course, that is not impossible, but what’s more interesting is that some earlier leaks have appeared showing the very same detail from a different angle, and obviously taken by another person.
All in all, the moral of the story is that while this image seems closer to the truth, it is still an unconfirmed leak that you should take with the usual grain of salt. With an expected late-March unveiling, we might learn very soon. In the meantime, feel free to chime in with your thoughts about this latest image, do you think it's real?
