HTC is officially sending out press invites for a March 25th event — simultaneously taking place in both London and New York City — where they promise we’ll be seeing their flagship for the year ahead. We expect that phone to be the HTC M8 we’ve been hearing so much about, which is the direct sequel to the HTC One of yesteryear.

While we still don’t have a solid clue on what they’ll call this thing just yet, we do have a better idea of what to expect after a barrage of leaks. For starters, we know it’ll closely resemble the original HTC One, though users can expect a couple of key changes.

There’s an extra camera on the back, which rumors suggest will be used to facilitate some post-snap focusing features. Also noteworthy is the absence of physical navigation buttons, as HTC has seemingly settled on virtual buttons. Spec rumors have been a bit all over the place, though the latest say we should be seeing the following:

  • 5-inch 1080p HD display
  • Snapdragon 800 processor (more specifically, the MSM8974)
  • 2GB of RAM
  • UltraPixel camera on the rear
  • 2.1 megapixel camera on the front
  • WiFi ac
  • KitKat with Sense 6.0

It’s worth noting earlier rumors had the display anywhere between 5 and 5.2 inches, while we’ve also heard murmurings of 3GB of RAM instead of the typical 2GB. Whatever it turns out to be, though, we’ll be front and center come March 25th to take it all in. Be sure to circle the dates on your calendar!
