New pictures of HTC M8 appear

Ever play Whack a Mole? That's the game in the arcade where you are given a mallet and asked to bop moles on the head, knocking them down. As one mole goes down, another one pops up. What calls this game to mind is the recent characterization of a leaked picture of the HTC M8 (aka the HTC One 2) as a fake by Marc Moons. Moons is the Director for HTC in the Benelux region, and as such, he should know a thing or two about what the manufacturer is working on...

My God, it looks as perfect as one could imagine. And from this single screen, there seems to be many thoughtful changes to sense!

Nice look but seems that photos are Photoshopped.

P.S.
I would love to see notification LED not under the speaker grill and it would be nice if it was RGB. :)

I like how android manufacturers are keeping it low on the spec front.

5 megapixel ultrapixel I do hope it is impressive, 6 or 8 ultrapixel would have been better? Still looking forward to this though.

I mentioned this higher up, but it's a twin 5 MP Ultrapixel sensor array.

This kind of imaging technolpgy is called computational imaging, and is believed to be the next step for all cameras.

What this means is that the phone takes the two 5 MP images it captured and combines them using some rather advanced algorithms. The output image will be a high-resolution image with reduced noise, improved low-light performance, added refocusing ability and the chance of 3D capture.

According to Toshiba who makes the array, a 5 MP twin sensor will output a 13 MP image.

TL;DR: This is a 13 MP Ultrapixel camera phone.

They should have just made the on screen button with the transparent background. That would have looked much better.

Why O why on a large screen do we STILL have a 4 x 4 home screen grid it should be 5 x 5 or 5 wide 4 tall, waste of space

In TouchWiz you have 4x4 but all the icons are shrinked in the top, 1 row more of Free space and then the appdrawer

Weird that the two pictures were "taken" 3 hours away from each other.

If this is true what it looks like with the best specs for right now, it will be hard to decide between this, LG G2 pro, Sony Z2 or wait for iPhone 6 with hopefully bigger screen with sapphire. I would consider Samsung but I'm fed up with my s3. No more samsung!

The screen isn't real and the frame isn't metallic - compare it with "original" leak of november:
