Alleged images of the HTC M8 get leaked, show metal body

The M8 has been rumored for months and appears to feature a design that mimics that of the HTC One.

HTC could be working on a new handset code-named M8, according to recently leaked images.

TechRadar published on Thursday photos first uncovered on Taiwan-based site ePrice showing what the leaker says is the case for the HTC M8. The images show a design that's similar to that of the HTC One. However, unlike the HTC One, the M8's metal body extends beyond the edges. The HTC One has a break in the metal.

In addition to posting images on the M8, ePrice claims the handset will feature a 5- to 5.2-inch screen size and 3GB of RAM. It'll also have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.

Rumors have been swirling around the M8 for months. Some reports suggest it's a standalone device, while others say it's the code name for the next HTC One model. Whatever the case, HTC has remained tight-lipped on any plans for its next smartphones, so it's important at this point to take the leaks with the proverbial grain of salt.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
