At the MWC 2014, a plethora of new smartphones will go official and some of them might take quite a bit of time before they go on sale. Such is likely to be the case with the upcoming HTC M8 flagship that’s also known as the One 2. A new leak suggests that the device will arrive in the US soon after getting formally unveiled.
The source of the information is none other than EvLeaks. According to his tweet, HTC could be looking at a late March launch for the M8 smartphone. If so, the handset could go on sale around the same time as the Samsung Galaxy S5. The upcoming M8 flagship has been leaked to a great extent. We first received confirmation of its existence when a UK judge disclosed that HTC will launch a new flagship this month.

Specifications of the M8 were also divulged, courtesy of AnTuTu benchmark. A couple of days back, the smartphone was spotted with the One 2 branding on the New Caledonian Telecommunications Authority in France along with a dual SIM model. And a previous report suggested that HTC might drop off capacitive touch buttons in favor of on-screen ones, making the device the first from the company to officially have the feature.
Here are the leaked specifications:
– Platform: Android 4.4 KitKat with Sense 6 UI
– Display: 5-inch 1080p FHD
– Camera: 4MP UltraPixel
– Processor: 2.2GHz quad core Snapdragon 800
– RAM: 2GB
– Memory: 16GB
We still anticipate seeing the HTC M8 at the MWC 2014 later this month.
