HTC just can’t seem to stay out of the news as of late. It was just two months ago that HTC unveiled the One M8 and started selling it from day one in select markets. Just last week, HTC followed up with a successor to the HTC One Mini. And that brings us to today, where we have been lucky enough to have been graced with leaked images of both the alleged M8 Ace and now the One M8 Prime as well.
The new 360-degree render above comes to us thanks to the efforts of Evan Blass, known better as @evleaks. So what new things can we learn from gazing at the One M8 Prime’s new render? Although it tells us nothing about the specs, it seems to confirm that this will be a sizable device.
Based on past rumors, we already knew that the One M8 Prime wouldn’t merely be an enhanced variant of the existing M8. Instead, the M8 Prime might have a similar design language, but it actually features a much larger body that contains a 5.5-inch 2560×1440 resolution display. The specs are also rumored to be bumped up with a Snapdragon 805 processor and 3GB of RAM.
Back to the render, the rear of the device indicates that HTC is deviating from the One M8’s design at least a little here. The big change is the larger looking raised camera. This could hint at an improved sensor or it could merely be an aesthetic change, it’s really too early to say one way or another. The front of the phone is also a bit different from the One M8, particularly when it comes to the style of the speaker grilles.
So when will we see the M8 Prime? While we don’t have a timeframe just yet, the increased level of leaks seem to suggest the phone’s arrival could be just around the corner, perhaps right in time for the LG G3.
