HTC One M8 Release In March? New Case Design Leaked Early

The HTC One M8 (or HTC One Two or HTC Two) release is predicted to be announced next month at the Mobile World Congress event. Many believe the successor to the HTC One phone is coming by March.

Rumors concerning the HTC One M8, the top secret sounding design name for the next generation HTC phone, have been swirling since some of the specs for the new phone were leaked in November. The HTC One M8 is expected to feature a much upgraded camera. While many consumers loved the feel and design of the android run HTC One, they were largely disappointed in the weak camera.

Fans of the HTC One have nothing to fear with the new model. It is expected to reveal a 1440 x 2560 pixel (QHC) resolution display. The new case design that has been leaked to multiple media outlets also shows a second cutout for what appears to either be a secondary eyesight for a camera or a space for index finger print scanning. There are a number of questions regarding that second hole. It is very possible the HTC One M8 will feature twin UltraPixel cameras to improve autofocus, image quality, and depth of focus.

Also expected to be announced in February for the March release is a five inch screen. The larger display (probably not wraparound in case you were wondering) will have a 1080 HD display. But more than aesthetic upgrades are coming with the HTC One M8. Anchored by the Qualcomm snapdragon processor, possibly 3 GB of RAM, and running KitKat, the HTC One M8 is sure to be back in the mix for best handset.

From a marketing standpoint, the new phone is believed to continue a relationship with the popular Beats headphones produced by Dr. Dre. In a very difficult and competitive handset market, the HTC One M8 has their work cut out for them.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 is rumored to release in the first quarter this year also and is expected to have some outstanding features. Some even believe that it could have iris scanning technology. While the HTC One M8 has not hinted at anything as cutting edge as eye scanning, it sure to be in the running for best phone on the market. Watch how the previous model stood up to the competition.
