With an upcoming announcement of the HTC M8 expected to be made soon, the leaks should start pouring in. The latest comes from @htcfamily_ru. We’ve gotten a couple of new shots of the device said to be the successor to the HTC One (which we still don’t have a market name for just yet).

The image shows us a couple of different interesting things. For starters, it looks quite similar to the HTC One. In fact, if not for the secondary camera it has alongside dual-LED flash, we’d probably mistake this for the 2013 flagship.

And yes, I did say secondary camera. While many have assumed that the second hole at the top of the HTC M8’s rear chassis is for the fingerprint scanner, a recent Bloomberg report suggests HTC is using a secondary camera to facilitate post-snapshot focusing. It doesn’t sound all that different from Lytro, though we’d have to see just how well this would work for ourselves.

That bit of detail joins long-standing rumors that the HTC M8 will come with a Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 5-inch 1080p display and on-screen buttons. We’re hoping HTC will launch this thing at Mobile World Congress later this month, though there’s been no indication that they will. Either way, it shouldn’t be long before we see the M8 unveiled once and for all.
