The HTC One (not the old one, the new one) is being introduced tomorrow at an event in NYC that kicks off at 11 AM ET, but in case you weren’t yet tired of the steady stream of leaks that have ruined any possible surprises at the flagship unveiling, here’s a nearly 15-minute video look at HTC’s latest kick at the can.
The M8 (HTC’s internal code name for the new One) you see above is one of four rumored colorways for the smartphone, which also include gold, silver and black in addition to this sort of slate gray finish. You can see from the video that the finish is more brushed than the finish on last year’s HTC One, and the new metal edges surrounding the phone appear to have been polished to a mirror finish.
While this isn’t the first leak for the new HTC One, or even the first extended hands-on video look, it is a new perspective on this yet-to-be-announced hardware, and one that makes me even more excited to see the real thing in the flesh. HTC knocked it out of the park with the original HTC One, in terms of design and performance, and it looks poised to do it again. Hopefully this time around, consumers will take notice.
Rumored specs for the HTC One (M8) include a 2.3GHz Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, either 16 or 32GB of onboard storage with expandable micro SD memory up to 128GB, a 5-inch display with 1080×1920 resolution and 441 ppi display density, and the new Duo Camera which composes images from two separate captures for advanced editing features. Tune in here tomorrow as we bring you all the info about the new smartphone when it finally becomes official.
