Is this our first look at the HTC One M8 Prime? [UPDATE]

htc one m8 prime press render zoom crop leak

Revered Twitter leakster @evleaks promised that we were only just getting started with all the HTC One M8 Prime leaks, and he has come through with another — a very clean look at the upper-back portion of the device’s press render. It certainly does look HTC One-ish with that extra depth information camera and that iconic white stripe racing through it.

While this photo obviously doesn’t tell us much we can take a couple of things away from it. For starters, it seems HTC has elected to go with a raised camera sensor for the primary camera as opposed to the flush installation on the original HTC One M8.

And while it’s hard to tell from a cropped press render, the material doesn’t look quite as shiny as the original M8 did in its press photos. This could lend credence to the rumor from yesterday suggesting HTC has gone with a new material made of a composite of aluminum and liquid silicone. This would stand to give the device that same premium feel while giving it more grip for those who complained about how slippery the original M8 is.

And that’s all that’s new today. So far, we know that this thing could come in at 5.5 inches, have 2560 x 1440 resolution, a Snapdragon 805 chipset, 3GB of RAM and will be waterproof. Sounding like quite the impressive phone for sure, but we’ll have to wait for official word to see if this is more than just wishful thinking.

@evleaks decided to add another image after the buzzer, including a full, 360-degree GIF of the alleged One M8 Prime. Bask in its splendor.

      • IheartNexus

        Rumored specs aren’t worth much. I meant it as a hopeful “or GTFO”. ;P haha

        Haha, indeed. Although for $300 I say you get some leeway with regards to camera quality ;)

  • phinn

    When is there a Prime version of the LG Optimus? ;)

    • malcmilli

      These are probably all fall release phones… so the new Note, One Max/butterfuly, etc.

    • Tony Lai

      That would be called the G3.

      • ratnok

    • Durin123

      When the TARDIS exploded and he didn’t have a leaked shot of it.

  • lolwut

    “have 2560 x 1440 resolution”

    WHY!?

    • Derek Crawley

      Because who doesn’t want 2012 hdtvs’ resolution on their phone

      • Durin123

        Scumbag device user. Has HDTV resolution from 2 years ago on phone. Complains while millions of people in the US barely make enough money to stay alive.

    • Robb Nunya

      BECAUSE!

  • OMFCody

    Too. Much. Bezel.
    With a 5.5″ screen it’s going to be bigger than the Note 4 with it’s ~5.9″… It’s boomsound OR bezel HTC, not both. Other than that and the lack of a stylus, I’m still looking forward to this device.

  • Robb Nunya

    This is going to be a Sprint Exclusive: The New EVO. The Red/Orange ring on the camera proves it!

    (Kidding… I hope)
