HTC M8 backside shown off in leaked photo, complete with dual camera setup


This past weekend, a leaked image gave us a glimpse at what may be the HTC M8′s on-screen navigation buttons. Today we’re turning our attention to the M8′s backside, because a new photo has made its way online that claims to show the rear of the next HTC flagship, complete with some a couple of significant changes from the original HTC One.

Posted by HTCFamily.ru, the image purportedly shows the backside of an HTC M8 with a dual-LED flash as well as a pair of cameras. The first shooter is located in the same spot as the original One’s camera, while the second sensor – which looks a bit smaller that the first – is located directly above both it and the upper plastic accent. Two other small differences between the M8 and the One include the lack of a Beats Audio logo on the M8′s backside and the flip-flop of the rear mic in the upper plastic accent.


The HTC M8 leaks continue with an alleged outline of the device’s face. It’s difficult to take away many details from the basic diagram, but the image does include the aforementioned on-screen navigation buttons, and those lines above and below the display suggest that HTC’s BoomSound front-facing speakers could make the jump from the One to the M8.

While still very much unofficial, the M8 shown in these images does line up with what we’ve heard about the device so far. That includes the rumored dual camera setup, the on-screen buttons and the design of the phone, which one recent report described as being “strikingly” similar to the HTC One.

Overall the M8 seems to be shaping up to be a nice evolution of the original One, offering a similar look and feel but with updated specs. If the rumored dual camera setup holds true, it’ll be interesting to see what kind of images the M8 is capable of cranking out, especially given the increased focus on smartphone cameras that we’ve seen as of late.

What do you think of the HTC M8 so far? Do the leaks have you interested in HTC’s next flagship phone or does its One-like design have you eyeing another device?
