HTC One M8 leaks in a handful of new photos

HTC One M8 leaks in a handful of new photos
Half a month -- that's how much longer we'll have to wait until we see HTC's new flagship make it on the stage. Until then, we'll have to settle for intel that has managed to escape the Taiwanese manufacturer's labs. 

Fortunately, we've had quite some stuff leak out, and that trend is on a rise. After an anonymous kid smashed any hopes HTC might have been harboring for keeping the All New One a secret in a massive, 12-minutes hands-on peek into the flagship, we've been growing more and more certain that what we're seeing is, indeed, the real deal. A bunch of snaps of a China Mobile-branded HTC One M8 reinforce that notion, as they show a device that is identical to the one we've been watching come out of every nook and cranny in the past few weeks. 

Again, a two camera setup with a dual LED flash module is being confirmed, and judging by the latest HTC teasers, the company isn't even trying to deny it anymore. In any case, we're genuinely interested in testing what this kind of configuration can do, and we honestly can't wait until the 25th of March, which is when HTC will be officially christening its new flagship.

Judging by these pictures he is lying. This is almost as big as the HTC Max while the GS5 shouldn't be even close to the HTC Max.

Still the perspective can play tricks on your eyes regarding size but he sounds like a typical HTC jealous hater....

Who cares about side bezels.
I think side bezels must be big to avoid unwanted touch and also the cracks that happen due to sudden falls.

The Galaxy S5 have bigger bezels is because of the water resistance, just like the Xperia Z2 with water proofing but with thinner bezels. But I wonder why the All New One has a big bezel on the bottom, just because of the logo or the logo will light up when you turn on the screen? I hope the logo will light up when you turn on the screen, because that will make the phone look better imo.

I doubt it, and even if it did light up, it's still a waste of space imo ): might as well stick to their capacitive buttons rather than on screen & big bottom bezel.

The bezel at the bottom looks big and the phone looks too rounded, but the phone still looks nice I must say. Just hope that it isn't overpriced like it's predecessor.

This is an appeal to PA, whenever you publish photos of the M8 please put a photo of the S5 at the end, it will kill the boner that I get..

Let's admit it , if the HTC m8 logo at the bottom does nothing then this will be a huge disappointment . I mean why would u keep such a bezel ? Only for the logo which u already have a huge one on the back . Apart from that the phone looks super nice and sleek

22. xperiaDROID (Posts: 5047; Member since: 08 Mar 2013)


Three possibilities of why the logo on the bottom looks big,
1. Logo will light up when the screen is turned on.
2. Fingerprint sensor.
3. Just a logo.

26. khaldoon (Posts: 29; Member since: 17 May 2013)


Hopefully if they don't make it a finger print scanner at least they make it light up or smth cuz it will really be meaningless if it doesn't have any functions

xperiaDROID correct. it must have function.

M8 and Z1 are both premium looking and feeling phones unlike the BUTT ugly S5!

What if the bottom bezel where the HTC logo is, is a fingerprint scanner hidden ? Maybe then you will all stop crying about bezels?

This one is much better than the video leak m8.. They trimmed the front side and it looks closer to m7 now.. Which is good cause i want to see that shinny part that emphasizes the aluminium build..but that logo at the buttom will be final as far as I can see, I only hope that there's an option to use that area like the m7 as a navigation key and an option to temove the on screen..build looks durable planning to put a aluminum bumper and expose the entire design.. Nice phone.. But still thinking to get G3 since im using a G2 now and also satisfied with it..

imo better than the previous one
two visible slots on the right and left
possibly one for sd card
3.5 mm jack at the button
power button changed to right...
those little changes..win for HTC

Looks almost as big as the HTC Max and thicker to boot. And that was laughably huge.....

And I thought the Xperia Z2 and GS5 failed hard. It looks like HTC takes the fail award, again. I can't say I am surprised though and the HTC sales numbers are going to support this.

I'm thankful for some bezel, that's how I hold my phone.
I suspect most crying bezel to big, are possibly overlooking their own devices bezel and just being usual trolls.
I bet some of them, have an iPhone close by too, can you say hypocrisy at its finest.

Its great because its next to charger so you hold it with cord on one side not both best part is when you pit your phone in the pocket is always upside down so ear phones at top such bottom good that's the only nice thing apple ever did

Looks bigger than the original one imo compared to this image of the original one vs one max and then look at the new one vs one max and the new one is closer to the size of ten one max. Think it looks nice just not fan of the large bottom bezels especially when it has on screen buttons.
