Rumor: HTC M8 heading to AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon by end of Q1 2014

After getting a look at what the HTC M8 (the HTC One’s 2014 successor) may look like, @evleaks has shared that the HTC’s new flagship Android phone will launch on all four major US service providers by the end of Q1 2014.

The M8′s predecessor, the HTC One, did technically start showing up at retail stores in Europe during the last few days of March of this year, but the company’s original plan was a March 22 launch on T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T here in the US market. Those plans fell through when camera component shortages forced HTC to push back the US launch date.

If HTC can pull off a late Q1 launch of the HTC M8, it should give the company a slight advantage over Samsung; the Galaxy S 5 is not expected until sometime in Q2. It’s certainly too early to tell if HTC’s or Samsung’s 2014 flagship will come out on top, but we’re hoping HTC is able to capitalize on an earlier release to help stabilize the company’s dire financial situation.

We definitely think HTC can do it, but we wouldn’t be surprised if Verizon somehow managed to launch the phone a few weeks after its competitors.
