Rumor: All New HTC One (M8) to be launched in early April (before the Galaxy S5)


We already know that HTC will officially announce its next-generation flagship Android smartphone on March 25. But when will the handset be available to purchase? Well, we don’t have any confirmation on this yet, but we are hearing that the All New HTC One could be available starting early April.

According to Russian-based website HTCFamily, the upcoming smartphone “is launching two weeks after” March 25. If this is true, we should see the new HTC One in stores starting April 8 - only a few days before Samsung launches its Galaxy S5 flagship.

HTCFamily was one of the first websites to reveal accurate photos of the All New HTC One, so it appears to be a reliable source. This, however, doesn’t make its claim a solid fact. It’s still a rumor.

HTC teased the new One several times until now, confirming that it would have a metal body, dual-sensor rear camera, and enhanced audio capabilities. We saw a few press renders of the upcoming smartphone (see here, here and here), plus a lengthy video showing it next to the 2013 HTC One.

HTCFamily says that the All New One will be available in 110 countries around the world. Well, we’re waiting for HTC to confirm all this.

Exactly. And not to mention that even if this rumor is true, having the "All New One" out 2 days before the G5 isn't going to persuade people from changing their purchase....

There was a rumor saying that being a fanboy of a particular brand is kind lame and pathetic. Common boys... Repeat after me : 'sammy doesn't give a flying fck about us'. Now keep saying that..

Well being a fanboy might be lame but being a hater directly reflects your low self esteem! Common girls .. repeat after me : 'giani is a LOSER'. Now keep saying that.

If I'm correct, dual 5MP cameras that combine to 13.1MP thanks to Toshiba.

4 mp and 2 mp. And it's thanks to Qualcomm. Trust me smurc, I know this my cousin works for an uncle that was married to the brother in law of a girl he had met at a party that works for HTC. If they make it more beautiful than one 2013 I'm getting one..

HTC is on a mission to punch all the haters in the dick, luckily my dick is safe from the punching because I always knew HTC had the power to be on top ;)

Apparently the gentleman, who we shall refer to as "Zach," fears HTC abusing his penis with fisticuffs. I can sympathize, because that does not sound pleasant, but if HTC thinks their profits and marketshare suck now, then I can only assume that manual genital mutilation will not burnish their image.

I'm saying what i said and i can quote you from a previous article. You're so cool you felt the need to tell everyone that the only phones for you were either Apple or Samsung. I stand by what i said, not talking about DvD players. So lemme rephrase Mr. Smart azz you only choose apple or samsung phones, what a sad life that must be

Because they make the best phones that interest me the most. Got a problem with that? Find a new hobby other than being a joke and annoying.

Moi? I had the international One X at launch (Beautiful screen, cool looking, but "meh" camera and terrible battery life on the Tegra 3) and the AT&T One at launch (Good build, good sound, decent screen, but terrible battery and camera). I will have the M8 at launch, too.

They should marcket the f@ck out of this thing if they are to compete with sammy. And for that they need dumb features no one will ever use. Though work for htc.
