Here's the All New HTC One/M8 in action
A couple of photographs showing the All New HTC One/M8 in action, have been posted on a Chinese blog. The photos both employ blue markings to protect the identity of the person holding the phone. We've already seen what are allegedly full press shots of the device for both AT&T and Verizon, thanks to serial leaker evleaks.

While the All New HTC One/M8 is seemingly ensconced in a rubber bumper or a case of some type (some time done to disguise the true identity of a phone while in testing), we can see the top of the phone, which is being held in landscape. The image matches perfectly with the pictures tweeted out by evleaks, which pretty much confirms the authenticity of these photos.

We expect to see the All New HTC One/M8 unveiled on March 25th with simultaneous events planned for New York City and London.


Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

More photos? Kinda tired of it now, especially since evleaks already leaked the image, want to know the features instead. Other than Boom Sound that is.

Magic 8-Ball says there will be many more 'leaks' before the New One is officially announced.

the evleaks ones are fake htc said that buttons are not even in the correct location i do how ever see a much bigger front cam gives life to the 4 or 5 mp front cam, hoping for lytro cam on back as long as there is sd or 64gb or bigger and 3 gb ram and strong processor am happy and that will bring be back to htc after the crap samsung showed us.

I hope for HTCs sake, they release the New One on all carriers at the start. Doing the slow drip from AT&T/T-Mo to Sprint to VZW really hurt the potential sales. By the time it was released on VZW, the OG One was effectively obsolete and there were newer toys to temp VZW customers.

Oooo...I see new camera UI and a very rounded body. They should stop leaking pictures of the phone, it's just spoiling the fun.

"They should stop leaking pictures of the phone, it's just spoiling the fun."

Not to their thinking - it is a way to keep interest up and mindshare until the New One is 'officially' announced.

being a samsung s owner in the past i was looking forward the s5 but I agree with you this time, this is a better looking phone then the dated s series, i am interested to see what this handset can do, my contract is up in the summer so hopefully will either find out if there is a premium new range from sammy, or this htc or the sony z2, so much choice though :-)

Not sure why you comparing Z2 & S5 with M8 when we still don't know it's feature.

That's just his prediction, he forgot to add "just my prediction". Well, if to me, it will be Z2 > M8 > S5...just my prediction.

I haven't heard if Z2 has OIS for the camera sensor. If no OIS, then New One (M8) > Z2. Unless the camera sensor of the New One is disappointing in other ways (sensor size, image quality, aperture, etc.).

posted on 02 Mar 2014, 01:18

16. xperiaDROID (Posts: 5137; Member since: 08 Mar 2013)


Sony has some kind of technology called SteadyShot on the Z2's camera, I think that's almost the same as the OIS but just better digital image stabilization instead of optical image stabilization (OIS).

posted on 02 Mar 2014, 01:26 3

17. Droid_X_Doug (Posts: 5572; Member since: 22 Dec 2010)


I think SteadyShot is Sony's brand name for digital image stabilization (DIS). DIS is better than no IS, but OIS is better than DIS. If no OIS, then maybe Sony will address the omission on the Z3.

At this point, Sony has a bigger problem with their effective carrier exclusivity in the U.S. Not getting any sales from VZW (and to a lesser degree, Sprint) is just plain dumb.

I'm not from the US, but I know that T Mobile is the only carrier that offer Sony phones in the US. I think it's because it's safer for Sony to do that due to the hype and attention that Samsung and Apple get in the US. But yeah, Sony should try release their phones to all major carriers in the US, not only T Mobile, if they don't try, they won't know.

sony z2 is a great designed phone but sony's UI is just not advance enough to compete in the mobile world.

As a HTC One owner, i would rather they use HTC one's design and the new Sense 6.0.. the bottom bezzel for HTC Branding is just too annoying for me :( and the on screen button.

i agree to that should have kept the original ONE design hate that NEW bezel.. Males the bloody phone huge for its 5 inch size. Im sure 5.5 inch could have fit inside there

26. Killua (Posts: 257; Member since: 25 Nov 2013)


Well, fair enough. If we're talking prediction according to rumors, I guess mine is Z2 > S5 = M8. And Samsung F line probably will blow them all away.

The sad thing so far is that it goes like this....

Nexus 5 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>G2>>>>>>>>>GS4>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>​>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>GS5>Z2=M8

These new phones are complete failures so far.

This is the worst kept hidden htc device that has leaked multiple times, months/weeks before its launch,what happened?

could be worse its not the final design more like beta testing software on prototypes and if htc kept a secret like samsung and give us a crap phone like samsung did the back lash would finish them off company to small to be hurt again like last time.

If the Galaxy S5 really got a brightness increase from 300ish nits up to 500 nits on manual brightness, that would eliminate the one flaw for me then. The S5 will likely bring better quality on the things that really matter than these other phones. Such as battery life, performance, firmware support, and camera.

Truth is your a s4 owner no real reason to get the s5 and from the leaks it looks like if your a one owner know real reason so far to get the new one. Design looks the same, spec bump if rumors are true is very much like the s5 ie 1080p screen and 2gb ram. Unless you must have that 2 cameras don't see a reason. Anyways let's see March 25 if they have something up there sleave that we have not seen.

M8 LOOKS LIKE WILL BE 4.9 OR 5 INCHES, BUT SCREEN WILL BE GREAT LIKE ON HTC ONE, plus it got boom sounds, nice phone if it got good camera,, screen will decide which is better M8 OR XPERIA Z2,IF Z2 SCREEN EQUAL TO M8 THEN I WILL BUY XPERIA. Z2
