Was this morning’s HTC M8 leak just a really good Photoshop job?

Early this morning we got what many believed to be a rare glimpse at the back of the upcoming HTC M8 ( HTC One 2, One Plus, or whatever you’d like to call it). The photo, which began making the rounds on popular tech sites, showed what appeared to be dual-rear facing cameras, lining up with rumors that HTC’s upcoming flagship could use a second camera for either higher-resolution stills, or post process focusing (ala Lytro).


It wasn’t long after the photo went public that HTC Netherlands’ “Regional Director HTC Benelux” posted a mysterious subtweet mentioning all the Photoshopping going around these days. While this morning’s HTC M8 “leak” was never specifically called out (that’s kind of how subtweets work), many are left wondering if this guy doesn’t know a little more about the M8 than most. Here’s the tweet:

So, does this mean one of today’s leaks was just a really good ‘shop job? There’s no saying for sure, but it shouldn’t be much longer before we find out.

Thanks, Gerdardo!

    That girl is clearly just McLovin’s Hawaiian wife

      I think you used the words “Hawaiian wife” when you really meant “his wife from Jersey”. That’s what I thought based on her tan, in any event.

    I have to say, those don’t really look like cameras. It’s just a black disc. Normally a camera has the little hole inside the surrounding black bezel where the actual sensor and lens are.

      At that angle, you’re right. I was just moving my phone around, and the only way you won’t be able to see the inside is if the outside light got too bright. My laptop light is in front of me and my room light is on.

      I was barely able to see the discs when I aimed the lens more towards my laptop screen. You should be able to see them, as you said.

    At first I was a little excited but I quickly realized it was fake, so no surprise here at all.
