There’s just sixteen days left until HTC should be unveiling their new flagship device for the year, and there’s all kinds of interesting things we’ve just found out or seen in the last couple of days. We saw an image pop up of an all new flip cover case for the HTC M8 that has an LED viewing of the time, and the weather, and we learned that the device may be launching in over 110 global markets just two short weeks after the phone is set to be unveiled in New York and London on the 25th of this month. So if the launch is to be believed, than we should see this phone available for purchase on, wait for it… April 11th, which is interestingly enough the same day that Samsung is said to launch the Galaxy S 5. We’ll touch base on why this might be a mistake later, but for now we’ll just ponder the notion.

In addition to the new Black Flip view cover that we saw thanks to infamous leaker evleaks, it seems that there may be a slew of different color options available for this particular case. Our own Alex Maxham has said that the case reminds him of a light bright, which he have to agree with because it certainly takes us back to the days as kids where we would create all kinds of pictures using those little colored pegs on the light board. These new leaked press shots also come to us from evleaks, and show three additional colors. An Orange, an Aquamarine, and a Blue. These cases show the same time and weather as the black case, but we wouldn’t be surprised if other information like the date and notifications show up on them.
So far all the information we have on these cases is what we see, which is the four color options(so far) that we know will be available, and some of the data that shows up on the front of the cover. There hasn’t been any mention as of yet on how much the cases will cost, or if they will be available at launch with the phone, or where you’ll be able to get your hands on them. More info will probably pop up the closer we get to the launch date, which we’ll also probably learn a little more about as the unveiling approaches.
