We know we’re only a few short months away from the HTC One successor being announced, given the original was released almost a year ago, it only makes sense. That being said, leaks have already begun seeping from the woodwork.

HTC M8 case

The latest is an image of a 3rd party case — discovered by the boys at GottaBeMobile — made especially for the upcoming HTC M8 (HTC One 2, or whatever you want to call it). While not revealing too much, we can see an extra cutout, plain as day, sitting right above where the camera/LED flash would be. This confirms 1 of 2 rumors: the first being a possible fingerprint scanner, the second being the rumored extra camera lens for improved low light shooting. You’ll also notice the extra space for the LED flash alongside the camera, indicating the M8 might have a 2-stage flash, ala iPhone 5s.

We’re expecting the HTC One 2 (M8) to receive an official announcement somewhere in late February, with a release shortly after. It’s also possible we’ll learn more during MWC 2014, if HTC doesn’t provide a separate press event. We’ll keep you posted.
