HTC M8 leaks in first real life picture, device sports a twin-sensor camera and dual LED flash

Well, well, well! What do we have here? It turns out that our patience is finally being rewarded with what looks to be a rather convincing real-life snap of the anxiously awaited new HTC flagship, dubbed the HTC M8. Obviously, keep in mind that we can't guarantee that no funny business is at place here.

The photo, posted on @HTCFamily_RU's Twitter handle, shows that the new HTC top shelfer may indeed be every bit the camera-centric device that rumors painted it out to be. It would appear that a twin-sensor camera is on its way, complimented by a dual LED flash module for even more oomph in low-light scenarios. As we discussed in our HTC M8 rumor round-up, a twin-sensor setup will contribute to improved focus, depth of field, and overall image quality. The two sensors are capable of recording depth data better, and will allow for some post-production retouches, like re-focus. It's also possible that the setup will allow for the removal of given objects from any snaps. 

Apart from the new camera tech, HTC appears unwilling to give up on the critically-acclaimed design of the HTC One. The same aluminum-clad unibody is present, and it's probably safe to assume that the monstrous BoomSound stereo front speakers will also make an appearance with the M8.

Word on the street is that HTC is prepping the M8 for a late March announcement, though concrete details around pricing and market availability are obviously still non-existent. 

UPDATE: An HTC executive has shot down the image, implying that it's a fake.
