If it isn’t broken, then don’t fix it. It would seem that if current rumors pan out, HTC is taking this to heart. According to the latest rumor from famous device leaker @evleaks, the M8 will look “strikingly like” the HTC M7, a.ka. the HTC One. With a solid aluminum design that received praise from nearly everyone, the HTC One showcased what a premium phone should look like. HTC looks to capitalize on that with its 2014 flagship. From a business perspective that would make sense. There is no point in changing something that’s working for the company.
So if this rumor is added to the others, the M8 looks to be an HTC One with updated specs and no capacitive buttions. It’s a safe bet that we’ll see the dual front-facing speakers in this next generation device as well. With everything, the device is shaping up to be an incremental refresh that some are dubbing the HTC One S. You know, if HTC hadn’t already used that name already. With a rumored launch pegged for next month, we’ll hopefully only have to wait a little longer to see what the HTC M8 actually has in store for us.
