HTC director shoots down M8 image as a photoshopped fake
Earlier today, we passed along to you a photo allegedly showing the rear of the HTC M8. For those who have Rip Van Winkled their way past the last few weeks, the M8 is the sequel to the M7, which of course is the HTC One. The M8 could end up being called the HTC One 2, and the leaked photo that purportedly showed the back of the phone revealed a twin-sensor camera and a dual flash. The dual-sensor would be expected to offer higher quality images, enhanced depth perception, and the ability to turn the user into a maestro at post production editing.

However, there is one itsy, bitsy little detail that you probably should know about. The picture is a fake. That comes from none other than Marc Moons, who is the Regional Director for HTC covering the Benelux region. As such, Moons might have a little more knowledge about the M8 than the average Joe down the street. Moons tweeted "Somebody has been photo shopping" in relation to so called leaked photo.

There might be dual camera sensors on the M8, and there might even be a dual flash. But according to someone who actually works for HTC, the M8 will not look like this morning's leaked photo. Isn't it nice when a company director can give us a quick heads up on the legitimacy of a leak?

HTC Director Benelux Marc Moons tweets that the image of the M8 at right, is a fake. At left is the HTC One.

Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!
