Here's what the Verizon-branded All New HTC One (M8) looks like

Here's what the Verizon-branded All New HTC One (M8) looks like
All New HTC One (M8) leaks, started out as a weekly and then daily occurrence, are now dangerously close to making this whole ordeal a bi-hourly thing. Unless conspiracy theorists are correct, and this is indeed a controlled marketing effort, it does feel like HTC may soon have to go down the road Sony did a few months ago, after its Xperia Z1 flagship was as thoroughly exposed before prime time 

Anyhow, this time around we have several fresh snaps of an M8 dummy, complete with Verizon branding. As it stands, and especially if you happen to be using Big Red's services, you just might have enough information already to make an informed choice as to whether the All New One is what you're looking for. Obviously, we're not at all suggesting that HTC has nothing else to pique our interest with, though it does feel like most of the surprises, like the dual camera, have already been spoiled.

Either way, do take a look, and rest assured that we'll likely be back with more after a short intermission starting now.

Phone will not look that great with a charger hanging off of it. If the battery size leaked turns out to be true, no go from the start. Maybe next time HTC. Does look Awesome

Will the Z2 only be available at TMobile? If so I'm probably going with the One!

though the real device will look as awsome as the pics, this is definitely a dummy unit! reasons: time and date on the screen as well as color of the flashes (they are supposed to have different colors)

I still cant get over the fact that HTC have crippled this phone with a small 2600mAh battery! The point of having a unibody design is that it allows manufacturers to fit in a larger battery like in the Sony Z2 (3200mAh) and LG G2 (3000mAh) 2600mAh is pathetic HTC!

The amount of mAh doesn't tell how good the battery life is, just like the amount of megapixels doesn't tell how good the picture quality is. Better wait for the battery life test before making any judgement.

Lets be honest there is a direct correlation between battery size and battery life, there is only so much software optimisation a company can do and 2600mAh is simply not big enough for a phone as big as this.

I can not believe that they managed to put only 2600 mah even though its size is almost equivalent to xperia z2 according to leaks.

wrong. it is fixed. more means better. you can't liken it to camera performance. if the software is not optimized for efficient operation, you can't fault a big battery.

MaH does not show battery life, my Moto G with its 2070MaH runs all day long.

Yeah and they failed in both of those areas with the htc, a cute phone thats dead and doesn't shoot great pics while it is alive no thanks

S4's battery was also 2600mAH with 5" screen which performed very well and I think HTC's performance optimization is better than Sammy in battery department.

yeah it would have been good if they had put 3000 mAh but we saw htc one did well on phonearena's battery test so it isnt always about mAh....

The HTC will have the newer processor that is more efficient??? apparently. But I agree ALL high end phones in 2014 should have a battery bigger than 3000mAh.

As much as i agree that this device is pretty neat and handsome, I'm genuinely concerned about the battery that'll be planted in this non-removable "unibody" craziness!! My first and second ever android devices were HTC's Legend and Desire HD and they were solid metal designed "unibody" devices that offered replaceable battery functionality. The simple fact that Samsung is the only OEM offering high end devices with this simple feature speaks volumes about why their phones sell so well. Inasmuch as i say well done HTC for implementing external SD card functionality on the new HTC One, I need them to wake up and manufacture a all round versatile device with their usual stellar designs before i can even consider buying their phones again. For now, I'm a pround owner of the Galaxy Note 3.
