HTC M8 'looks strikingly like' the HTC One

If it ain't broke, don't fix it

The HTC One was one of the slickest looking handsets to ever grace the smartphone world and so why not stick with the design?

In an off handed remark consummate technology leaker EvLeaks said over Twitter "[s]o, yeah, the M8 looks strikingly like the M7. It's too bad they already named another phone One S."

There were no new photos to support Evleaks biting remark, but it seems the HTC One successor will look nearly identically. Despite a bit likening the phone's new design to the difference between the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S, it could be great for the HTC One 2 to feature the same machined-aluminum design.

Previously leaked images of the HTC M8 revealed a metal back panel featuring a curious second hole above the camera. Early reports suggest that this extra gap in the case would be used for the camera's secondary focusing sensor or potentially a new fingerprint scanner as seen on the HTC One Max.

Buttoning up for launch

In a bigger change to the handset, the HTC M8 will be the company's first handset to slide its navigation buttons onto the screen.

HTC Source caught an early glimpse of the HTC M8's onscreen buttons thanks to an anonymous tip. From the early look we can see the new navigation bar will match the current arrangement and style of Android 4.4 KitKat.

More importantly, this move will help etch off some unneeded bezel and make more space for the device's rumored 5-inch display. The M8 is HTC's next big flagship gambit and as such it will feature some hot specs including a 1080p screen, 2.26GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, and 3GBs of RAM.

We're all set to gander at the HTC M8 for MWC 2014 or its newly rumored late March reveal in New York, so stay tuned to this space until then.
