Yet Another Purported HTC M8 Image Surfaces, Massive Black Unnecessary Logo Bar Included

I don’t feel like the the purported HTC M8 (One follow-up) leaks are going to slow down any time soon. With Samsung preparing to announce the Galaxy S5 in weeks, HTC can’t be far behind with their next flagship. And with that, we get pictures like the one you are seeing below from @HTCFamily_RU. According to a Tweet sent along with this image, you are looking at an almost-crystal-clear image of the One’s successor. 

The device resembles a phone that has been leaked a couple of times, and as was hinted at by @evleaks, looks a heck of a lot like the One. It appears to be slightly more rounded, but the overall design theme is identical. You have dual BoomSound speakers, a potentially wide-angle front camera, big beautiful display, and a massive black bar which houses an “HTC” logo. Wait, we’re looking at on-screen navigation buttons, but HTC thought we still needed a massive black area for their logo to shine through?

Since nothing is confirmed, we’ll withhold our remaining judgement on that area until something is made official.

Other than all of that, it looks like Sense. It looks like an HTC phone. And it’s also sitting pretty in some sort of a flip case.

    I’d like to see an estimate of the useful %age to compare with the @somospostpc list you put up yesterday.

    Uhh why is the bezel exactly like the one? I thought this was edge to edge?

    ugh, so close HTC…so close

    If this is true, that Bar needs to serve some purpose other than letting you know who made the phone your using.

    Yes! I cannot tell you how long I’ve been waiting for a phone with a huge, oversized, highly unnecessary black bar across the bottom. This phone is for me!

    It could just be a place holder for the Vz logo if they decide to feature this phone.

    This is making me sad. I really want to get this device when my contract ends in June, but if it’s as long as it looks like it’s going to be we could have a problem.

    Someone cue up “My Heart Will Go On”- I “sense” the end is near for HTC (pun completely intended).

    I was honestly looking forward to this new device, but after seeing this (lower bezel), I’m a little disappointed. I don’t think HTC gets it. You’ll see, most people on site like these (the one leaking and writing about their devices) are tech savvy, for most part, and although we are not you average consumer, usually we are the one who recommend phone to our family members, friends, and even strangers. HTC should start looking at site like this. They may learn a think or two. In the end I truly wish them the best of luck, as I am truly looking forward to the actual device. Here is to still Hoping this was an early prototype…
