New HTC M8 Leak Shows Off Device In Protective Case

February 18, 2014 - Written By Justin Diaz

The mobile world has already been flooded with rumors surrounding HTC’s next big device, with no signs of slowing down. Up to now we’ve had screenshots of the M8 UI showing off the new Blink Feed with updated Sense, and a myriad of leaked images all claiming to be the M8 in all it’s glory. We’re still a little over a month away from the supposed launch of the phone, and with all that time between now and March 25th when HTC is holding it’s press event, there’s plenty of room for another leak or two. @evleaks is happy to oblige and hand us something else to ponder over while we await any official announcements from HTC. This new image leak is of the alleged HTC M8 inside a nice new protective case, and we see the same look of the home screen shot that was leaked sometime last month with the Sense and new Blink Feed styling. This new image of course also shows off the phone’s full front face, so we see the Boomsound speakers on the top and the bottom just above and below the screen bezel.

The top Boomsound speaker is a tad bit shorter just like we’ve seen in some other leaks, to allow room for the front facing camera and sensors that we see just to the left of the camera lens.We can also see from the image that the volume rocker is on the right hand side, with the case having been molded to cover the buttons. It looks like the power button is also on the right hand side just above the volume rocker, although with no case molding. Instead there seems to be an opening for the button there, perhaps making it easier to depress. you can also see the navigation buttons are on screen and part of the UI as past leaks have stated. What some of you may or may not have noticed is the Date, and the Location listed under the time, which says March 25th, New York. March 25th is of course the date that HTC is supposed to unveil the phone, and just like past leaks have stated, New York is where the press event is supposed to be held. If it pans out and the phone is actually unveiled on the 25th of next month in New York, putting that information in this leak is truly sneaky. What do you all think about the look of this phone in it’s case?
