First HTC One M8 Prime render shows up to fully reveal the handset

First HTC One M8 Prime render shows up to fully reveal the handset
Not long after we told you that the unannounced HTC One M8 Prime should be made out of “aluminum and liquid silicone”, here we have what seems to be the very first render of the device - and it’s a 360-degree one, no less. The render comes from @evleaks, and shows a large, thin handset that definitely has an HTC feel to it.

HTC’s logo can be seen on the front, below the display (which is expected to be a 5.5-inch Quad HD one). Also on the front, we can see dual speakers, a camera, and a mysterious sensor just above the screen. The back of the smartphone has a dual-lens camera with a dual-LED flash, plus another HTC logo. 

@evleaks refers to the new device as the “HTC M8 Prime”, thus not including the One part. But it's probably too early now to know what the final moniker of the device will be.

HTC isn't expected to announce the M8 Prime before September - although, who knows, maybe it will do it earlier. Reportedly, the handset will be waterproof, featuring a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, and support for high-speed LTE Cat. 6.

Earlier today, we showed you the alleged HTC M8 Ace, another unannounced device that the Taiwanese company may introduce soon. Exciting times are ahead of us (and HTC), isn't it?

now you get an extra black bar on top of the display, so you have a 5.5 inch display in the size of a Xperia Z Ultra.....

Front to me is more or less okay, but what's with the bump on the back? What is that red (or orange, can't tell) ring doing over there. What's with the colour scheme. Grey/charcoal /black/white/red... what.

The sexiest phone I've seen yet...........................I'd buy it, BUT THE BATTERY ISN'T USER REPLACEABLE! HTC my first android phone was the G1. It had a removable battery. Why not this one!!! Dumb, dumb, dumb!
