HTC director shoots down M8 image as a photoshopped fake
However, there is one itsy, bitsy little detail that you probably should know about. The picture is a fake. That comes from none other than Marc Moons, who is the Regional Director for HTC covering the Benelux region. As such, Moons might have a little more knowledge about the M8 than the average Joe down the street. Moons tweeted "Somebody has been photo shopping" in relation to so called leaked photo.
There might be dual camera sensors on the M8, and there might even be a dual flash. But according to someone who actually works for HTC, the M8 will not look like this morning's leaked photo. Isn't it nice when a company director can give us a quick heads up on the legitimacy of a leak?
HTC Director Benelux Marc Moons tweets that the image of the M8 at right, is a fake. At left is the HTC One.
Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

Eh, I wouldn't be too surprised if that was a fake. But its not like it had bad info, I would have just left it as is to keep the interest going. This just scares me that they are trying to do damage control on raised expectations. Because if they deliver less than what that guy claimed....I mean are we looking at a Snapdragon 600 or something for the next model that they have to keep expectations lower than that guy's?

Good to hear because it was not very good looking. :)

The upper camera would be the other 3Mp camera, haha

The "upper camera" is supposed to be a fingerprint scanner. Not a "upper camera".... you sound about as intelligent as your picture looks.
