Dual cameras seen again, metal appears to extend round the sides
Just 24 hours removed from the announcement of its launch event, we’re seeing a full leaked render of the HTC M8 courtesy of @evleaks. If you’re thinking it looks a little familiar, then you’re absolutely right. Oh, and this particular one is in gold, if you like that sort of thing.
Taking a closer look at what we’re seeing, there is a lot that’s familiar. Boomsound speakers out front and the same overall design language as the current HTC One. There’s nothing wrong with that, since the HTC One is a pretty darn handsome thing. The dual rear cameras we’ve seen in previous leaks are present and correct, as is a dual-tone LED flash. What lacks still is any actual solid purpose for those dual cameras.
One other interesting design choice this time round looks to be the metal body extending around the sides. Since this render shows the gold color wrapping round the entire device, it’d be safe enough to assume it isn’t plastic. For reference, the sides on the current gold HTC One are black and made of plastic. The power button is up top, and the display is showing the same new look Sense we’ve seen leaked before, complete with on-screen buttons.
We’re still over a month away from the launch events in New York and London, and we’ll be live on the ground at both.
Update: Geek.com has gone live with a second leaked image, showing the top of the device in blue.
