Is HTC 0P6BXXX the M8? If yes, the new flagship may be headed to Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile

Not long ago, @evleaks (who almost always provides accurate details) referred to the M8 as the “0P6B”. Before that, the M8 appeared in a benchmark test as the 0P6B120. So an educated guess can only lead us to the conclusion that this is the next One.
The Bluetooth SIG reveals that the P6BXXX has software that’s been certified for three major US mobile carriers: Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile. All three are already selling the 2013 HTC One, so we shouldn’t be surprised to see them offering the new model as well. As you can tell, Sprint isn’t mentioned here, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it won’t plan to launch the M8 at some point.
Like the original HTC One, the M8 / One 2 should be joined by a Mini and a dual SIM version later this year. We haven't heard anything about a maxi version, but that doesn't mean this can't be in the pipeline too.
Update: @evleaks tweeted about an M8 destined for AT&T, "among others", back in November.

Hmm, seems that Sprint is left out; not sure if that's really a bad thing though.

Probably is for Sprint customers. Or rather for Sprint themselves if this phone becomes popular (Which it should do if - as the rumoured specs suggest - they've fixed all the gripes people had with the original One)

Yeah I don't see Sprint passing on this phone. Sprint usually carries most HTC phones, or some variant. I also don't really see them getting a custom EVO version of the One 2. It seems like carrier exclusives are becoming a thing of the past, which is a good thing.
