htc-one-m8-eye-leak

According to the rumor mill, HTC is supposed to be introducing an HTC One M8 with a souped up camera at next week’s New York City event. That phone is said to come alongside the HTC RECamera, an activity shooter that’s akin to head-mountable action cams like the GoPro.

A new render of the former device has leaked, and it doesn’t really give us much to talk or think about. This thing is an HTC One M8 through and through, down to its exact looks and most of the specs of the original. The only difference will be the introduction of a 13 megapixel camera sensor on the rear as opposed to HTC’s oft-criticized UltraPixel sensor.

The rest of the specs are poised to remain the same, including a 5-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM and more. We’ll have to see if those extra megapixels in the rear end up making this a necessary launch for HTC, but there it is anyway. Be sure to circle back next week for the official announcement details as we get them.
