The HTC M8′s official unveiling may still be a couple of weeks out, but luckily for us there have been a number of leaks to help make the wait easier. Today a few more details on HTC’s upcoming flagship have leaked out, including two new images of the device.

First up, @evleaks has shared an image of the HTC M8 donning a unique flip cover-style case. The front of the case is covered with holes, some of which are lit up with different colors to display the time and weather. Details on this case are pretty light outside of what we can glean from the image, but it looks like a pretty interesting take on the flip cover-style cases offered by LG and Samsung that include small windows for displaying information when the cover is closed.

The second tidbit of HTC M8 info today relates to a different variant of the device that’s said to be in the works. According to @evleaks, the M8 will be made available as a Google Play edition phone, much like the original HTC One was last year. Unfortunately, there’s no mention of when the GPe M8 might launch, so it’s not clear how much of a wait there will be between the launch of the Sense-equipped M8 and the vanilla Android version.

Finally, a purported press render of the HTC M8 has been leaked by MobileSyrup. The image shows the Telus version of the upcoming HTC flagship, complete with rounded corners and BoomSound speakers.

HTC is expected to officially unveil the M8 on March 25 at events in both New York City and London. After all that we’ve seen of the HTC M8 so far, are you excited for its arrival?
