Purported HTC One 2 (M8) 3D-printed model photographed

Pictures allegedly showing a 3D-printed HTC One 2 (M8) model have hit the web. Read on for more details!
December 26, 2013

HTC’s upcoming flagship Android handset – referred to as HTC M8 or HTC One 2 in previous reports – is supposedly launching at some point in early 2014, and while the handset is yet to become official, an alleged picture showing a 3D-printed model of the upcoming handset has been posted online.

According to Nowhereelse, the image has been posted on Chinese social network Weibo – although Phandroid says it was soon removed from it – showing the 3D-printed device alongside an iPhone 5C.

Whether the 3D model actually shows the rumored HTC One 2 can’t be confirmed at this time, but the image suggests the phone will have a large display – likely measuring 5 inches diagonally – and include two front speakers. From the looks of it, this purported HTC One 2 3D model is sort-of similar to the original HTC One, although the front-facing speakers aren’t symmetrical, and the back camera’s flash hole seems to be bigger, indicating that the next HTC flagship may offer a dual-LED flash on the back.

A set of allegedly leaked HTC M8 images has hit the web in early November, showing the back of the device. However, the 3D model above isn’t exactly similar to the handset in those pictures.

The HTC One 2 is also rumored to have a 1920 x 1080 Full HD display, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 or 805 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and Android 4.4 KitKat.
