HTC One (M8) Ace image takes the Mr Blurrycam to new levels

HTC has made it clear that the One will be joined by multiple devices over the course of this year, as the company pushes back into the mid-range market. It is starting to look as though the next device on the way could possibly be the rumored HTC One (M8) Ace, which has just seen its first leaked image come out. Although, the image mixes Mr Blurry with a possible promo image to leave us with more questions than answers.

The new image comes from uber-leaker Evleaks, who had first mentioned the possibility of a device called the M8 Ace just after the new One (M8) announcement. The rumors have implied that the Ace could be a new phablet on the way, but this new image doesn't give any sense of scale, so it's hard to say how accurate that idea is. The two big differences that we can see from this image compared to the One (M8) are that: 1) there is only one proximity sensor on the front rather than two, and it has been shifted to be next to the camera, and 2) the stereo speaker grills have been altered to cover the entire surface of the top and bottom bezels. Although, even the speaker grills look blurry in this image, so take from that what you will.

Other than that, we've got nothing. No specs have been rumored, no release window, nothing. All that to say: let the speculation begin!

Hopefully calling it "Ace" doesn't mean the same thing it does for a Samsung Galaxy. If it does, it'll have 1/4 the specs and cost 3x too much.

I am not getting your difference #1, M8 has exactly same sensor and Camera positions. #goHomeYoureDrunk

it's the m8 with a better camera. apparently, they realized how stupid forcing the 4MP ultrapixel is.

i think that they had to because of a contract they had with the maker of the ultrapixel camera

Well last year's one max was a complete joke costing as much as a 64gb iphone 5s.

One max had Snapdragon 600 and a crappy ultragimmick pixel without OIS. And it cost Almost $980 unlocked in a nearby store.

Maybe it is a s**tty version of their flagship. Oh wait, all of their flagships are already s**tty.

Quiet troll. I'm sure you're stuck on some prepaid crap with a wannabe phone.

Hopefully it will have a better camera to compete with samsung, sony and the others. The m8 is perfect but a bit big and bad camera.

All I know is when it comes out on Verizon it'll be 200$ unlike Samsung fishing for an extra 50. Arrogant bastards think their failure of a new flagship is worth 250 lol
