HTC M8 video leak gives lengthy look at hardware and software

The HTC M8/All New HTC One has followed a pretty standard pattern of leaks in recent weeks. The device has been the subject of spec rumors, reports trying to pin down the date on which it’ll officially debut and some press image leaks. Tonight we’ve hit the next step in the M8′s leak progression: a hands-on video.

YouTube user “GadgetReviews” today posted a 12-minute video showing off both an AT&T HTC M8′s hardware and software, giving us a glimpse at its dual rear cameras, on-screen buttons and refreshed camera UI. We’re also shown the M8′s microSD card slot, which is housed directly above the device’s volume rocker. There are a number of comparisons to the original HTC One in the video as well, giving us a good idea of just how HTC’s 2014 flagship compares to its predecessor.

Unsurprisingly, the lengthy hands-on video has been pulled from YouTube. Even less surprisingly, the clip has since been reuploaded, giving everyone who missed out on the original clip another chance to check it out. The HTC M8 is expected to make its official debut on March 25, and while there’s no word yet on when it’ll actually hit store shelves and consumers’ pockets, recent leaks have suggested that both AT&T and Verizon will carry it in the U.S. Of course, the original One was available on all four major U.S. carriers, and so I wouldn’t be surprised if the M8′s availability is just as widespread.
