Surprise: here's the All New HTC One / M8 for Verizon

Earlier today we saw an AT&T-bound HTC All New One / M8. Now - surprisingly or not - a Verizon variant of the unannounced smartphone also made an appearance, thanks to the same @evleaks.

Unlike AT&T’s silver-colored All New HTC One, Verizon’s model comes in dark grey (as you can certainly see above). However, both carriers will probably release the handset in multiple color versions.

Rumors have it that Sprint and T-Mobile will also release HTC’s next generation flagship smartphone. While we haven’t seen these versions (and can’t confirm their existence), we assume that they won’t be too different from the models that are bound to be launched by Verizon and AT&T.

As we told you many times before, HTC is all set to announce the All New One (yes, it looks like this is its final name) on March 25. We’re thinking that the company will want to sell it soon after that. But we’ll see what happens.

Looks Fake. No Power button on this.
In the earlier leaks also, the grey version didn't had the power button. Means someone took that grey mock-up and added the verizon logo in photoshop.

Even the previous AT&T leak also looks fake to me. In that leak the power button is on the right in the front view and on left side in the side view.

Top and side bazels are completely different in the both the leak.

The real device could be almost similar to these pictures. But these are not official renders.

Side bezels don't look that bad and the top/bottom bezels allow for the dual speakers. Good looking phone, IMO.

These seem to be early renders, that's why some inaccuracies appear. I'm 99.99% sure that "fake" is not a good term to use in the case of these leaks.

This has already been reported as fake from an HTC rep on pocketnow.
Not only did he say these were poor photoshop pictures, but the physical layout is completely in correct. Lame.

Indeed @evleaks went to far this time with miss leading us. I just don't understand why? Not like they didn't have the backing of every tech site already. Now were stuck with blatant forgeries and asked ourself why? HTC Rep politely shot the AT&T One (No pun there) down as fake on pocketnow.

The silver one didn't really impress me, but this titanium color is absolutely stunning. Amazing how a change of color makes a big difference.

They keep hash tagging "one up" but "one up" wouldve been a better name for this phone

i agree one up is such a beautiful name

So the Verizon version will have thinner bezels than the ATT One? Lol, these renders all have their little inconsistencies.

You cannot tell in this picture, but the power button/ screen wake button is just above the front facing camera. This is a big deal IMO. That was the goofy ergonomics issue that kept me from using the last One. Basically the same setup as the iPhone now. Looks great in dark grey.

Verizon logos are not that badly placed.

Hopefully you can rub out the logos like the beats logo on the last One.

I'll ask again, is anyone else not bothered by the black bezel after seeing the s5?

20. Kishin (Posts: 600; Member since: 30 May 2013)


I am and the truth is the S5 looks way better than this..

29. Reality_Check (Posts: 269; Member since: 15 Aug 2013)


IMO this looks way beautiful than the S5, even with that bezel :)

Can't even compare the one and the s5. The one is hands down a gorgeous beast, that has power and design. The s5 just looks like some crap thrown together to try and get something on the shelves for the drones to buy. The HTC is the better phone. Always has been always will be.

Not really. Samsung has their logo stamped under the speaker on the front, why can't HTC have their logo on the front as well? Yes, they both could remove it and make their devices noticeably shorter, but brand recognition is key, and since a lot of users have a case on their phone, a logo on the back isn't enough. If the logo actually has a purpose (notification light, fingerprint scanner, programmable capacitive key, etc.) then I like the placement of it, but if it's there only for branding, I don't mind.

Yes, this is the color I want. The silver looks good, but this dark grey is perfect! Release the beast already HTC.

Hopefully these are all fake and HTC didn't just add a bottom bezel just for their logo.

One would think there is a certain level of journalistic decorum. The fact that this image and the one for AT&Tversion has been flat out denied by HTC reps add a level of deception on a biblical scale. HTC has publicaly stated they are in talks with Verizon. Verizon at best will see the One May. Black version of HTC One will be a limited model and support a light grey Polly Carbonite inlay. Pocketnow dot com under AT&T HTC One has the full story in the comments section.

i think this might be news worthy but llabtoofer confirmed that the m8 or whatever it's called will have a snapdragon 801 soc (he didn't say which one).
