HTC One successor may sport two rear cameras

A tweeted photo allegedly of the HTC M8 reveals dual cameras in back, a setup that would offer better picture-taking prowess.

The successor to the HTC One may offer not one, but two rear cameras, at least according to an alleged photo tweeted on Tuesday.

Served up by a Twitter account called @HTCFamily.ru, the photo purports to show the rear casing of the HTC M8 with two camera lenses clearly on view near the top. Assuming the image is accurate, this means the upcoming new phone, codenamed the HTC M8, should be more adept at keeping your photos in focus.

Another image tweeted by the same account shows an outline of the front of the M8, revealing onscreen buttons in place of the usual physical or capacitive keys.

We'll know if these images are on the money when HTC unveils the next generation of the HTC One. But we may have to wait a while. A recent tweet from renowned leaker @evleaks suggests that HTC won't take the wraps off the phone until late March .
