No sooner do we get the word from Moons about the picture being fake, than two more leaked photos of the M8 appear. Is this a new global cottage industry? The new leaks come to us by way of Russia and include some specs. The phone is expected to feature a 5 inch screen (.3 inches more than the HTC One), a 1080 x 1920 resolution, quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and a dual-sensor 5MP Ultrapixel snapper on back. Android 4.4.2 powers the device out of the box. The navigation keys are apparently on-screen as expected, and the Boomsound speakers remain from the HTC One.
The other day, master leaker evleaks tweeted that the HTC M8 looks "strikingly like" the M7. The pictures below would certainly fit that description, but we warn you to take these photos with a grain of salt. It is okay to be skeptical, especially with a high profile phone like the M8.
You can check out the latest leaked photos of the HTC M8 in the screenshot below.

My thoughts exactly, this is exactly what I wanted the original one to be. Hopefully they have a big battery in this one.

Yeah... It really is! But they're killing me with the 5mp camera. Maybe if they tweaked the software just right, it may be little better. I said I could go down in screen size after a 5.5 but I may have to eat those words.

It's a 5 MP twin-sensor - TWIN. Due to how computational imaging works (read up on plenoptic cameras or the Toshiba twin-sensor if curious) the output image will be a high-resolution 13 MP. On top of that you'll get reduced noise, improved low-light performance and so forth. We'll see how well it fares once it's released. TL;DR: 2x5=13. Because computers are magic.

I get that it's a twin sensor, but we've seen a ton of "New Camera Technology" that never had the consistent end result that was billed. I was really evicted about the 4 up camera on the one until I zoomed in on a picture. But hey, we'll see when it comes out.

I think we were all rather disappointed about the hype surrounding the "Ultrapixel" camera, but it's not like they were denying any technical details about it. It was a 4 megapixel camera, and with 4 megapixels you don't get 20 megapixel photos. You don't even get 8 megapixel photos. You get 4 megapixel photos with improved low-light performance due to the larger pixel sensor size. And that's exactly what we got. Improved low-light performance at the expensive of resolution. With this new twin-sensor array they (meaning Toshiba, not HTC) promise high-resolution (13 MP) from 2x5 MP sensors with reduced noise and all the bells and whistles of computational photography. TL;DR: HTC never said the Hubble Space Telescope was built into the HTC One. We just jumped to conclusions.

Sorry guys, But I'm sure this is photoshopped. Take a look at the top right of the screen in the second image. Note the thickness of the bezel. Now, look at the bottom right of the on-screen buttons. If you look carefully, you can see the bezel. The bezel is a different thickness. All this is is a good photoshop.

That's the point: RETRACTABLE

Samsung , just go home with your cheap plastic, even if apple will be making iphone 20 ....you will still be using your plastic sh*t

I own an Xeria Z and still nothing wrong with plastic in my opinion. It's leightweight and durable and it's easier to take the back cover off. Especially with larger phones which makes it easier to handle. And the note 3 for example looks amazing and is easy in use thanks to its plastic design.
