While the photo of the shiny backed HTC M8 is supposedly legit, HTCFamily took a number of released pictures from various sources like @evleaks, @llabtofer and @leoside and created a render that is the star of the video below.
We are beginning to get a sense (no pun intended) of what to expect from the sequel to the HTC One, and as those in the know have repeatedly said, it doesn't seem to be much different than the HTC One. There are some changes such as the dual flash, and the dual sensor on back. The edges are said to be more curved than its predecessor and there are "faded plastic inserts" on the side.
The HTC One made a splash in terms of design and was one of our choices for the best designed product of 2013. Will the M8 aka HTC One 2 make a return trip on the list?
