HTC M8 Prime, 2014

  • Arthur

    Is that camera ring really going to be that orange color? Really ruins the back of the phone.

    • Manou

      I was going to say the exact same thing…

      • Amir

        it’s like they are intentionally want to ruin the phone design. they succeeded! not exciting.

        • Tosh

          Absolutely! I was sooo excited, and hoping that they would just do a pumped up version of M8 with a better camera but no… they just HAD to ruin something. M8′s immaculate design is lost.

          • dfsdfodsh

            Right. No matter what HTC does, theres always something to f*ck up.

          • Amir

            Wait and see xperia z3 design. it should have the most premium phone design in 2014 by reading rumors. sony has the most interesting designs imo. samsung is terrible. m8 design is great, this is just not good. g3 looks nice but plastic, meh, not premium feel.

        • John Cram

          what? do sit around all day looking at the back of a phone? what a bunch of turkeydks.

          • Amir

            no, not all day, but i know to appreciate good design. it’s an art. really.

    • Gamblor77

      Ya even if it was red like their Evo design that would have looked a lot sexier than orange. But still I like the look of this phone more than the current M8 personally. Mainly because it looks really slick and won’t be so slippery in the hand.

    • Ahmadovich

      It’s completely the opposite!

    • FishTire

      Are you kidding? Orange is beautiful and contrasted with black? Stunning,

  • 3arn0wl

    Hi evleaks,

    Do you know its dimensions?

  • Hugo Mathee

    Now we’ve got a useless black bar at the top as well? And on a 5.5 inch screened device?

    • Mike Gonzalez

      couldnt have said better myself… 5.5 inches display, size of a Galaxy Mega 6.3…

      • Romdude

        HTC really should sell the speakers and explain the obvious. If you want good front facing speakers, you’ll have to deal with a longer phone is all. Sell it like a media phone.

        • roberthenderson

          Anybody who has bothered to compare the speakers will be able to tell that there is a huge world of difference in the sound quality.

    • Kyle Laubscher

      You’re kidding right? Do you have any idea how a cell phone is internally packaged? Every phone has an area above and below the screen for componentry. Every single one. Cameras, digitizers, speakers. If you take an image of an M7, M8, M8 Prime, etc. and cover the extreme upper and lower portions that house the speakers the One family looks nearly identical to every other Android phone on the market. Those Boomsound speakers are nearly the entire depth of the body. That is how they get a great deal of their volume. There’s not much in the way of room to place anything behind them. The placement of the speakers and their front-firing nature is what draws attention to the “black bars” that everyone seems to be so worked up about. It is simply ignorance to say that they are useless and unnecessary however. Don’t believe me? Find any Android, Apple, Windows phone that does not have some space above and below the screen between the screen and the bezels. Otherwise, please stop with this ignorant nonsense over the One families bezels.


        Finally someone else who gets it and I don’t have to explain it to :-)

      • Romdude

        Which is why I prefer the capacitive keys of the HTC M7, at least you have more screen space and with the sense 6.0 update, it sports the same M8 look too without the black background for the docks.

    • Badcam3

      its not useless… the sensor’s are on in that black bar.

  • Halmat J. Saley

    wow wow, it reminds me the htc one x+, do you thing it will take so long to be released?!

  • Lauri

    So they’ve finally come to their senses and moved the power button to where it should be? Bravo.

    • Pradeep Viswanathan R

      What do you mean? the One MAX has the power button in the side.

      • Lauri

        Oh right. Didn’t realise that. But for whatever reason the m8 and the Desire 816 have it in a different locations which doesn’t make much sense to me.

  • Joe J

    5.5″ screen with those top and bottom black bezels. Hmm..

  • Paolo Ascani


  • Robert Edwards

    This reminds me quite a bit of the EVO 4G LTE. Even the camera ring is the same color.

    • Chris Chavez

      Such a sexy phone. Dedicated camera button, kickstand — why was there never another sequel? :/

      • Badcam3

        Still using mine :’)

      • Azareel Resendiz

        It was basically just a One X with a Sprint-exclusive shell.

        • weirdroid

          And button and kickstand… and SD Card slot and slightly better battery.

      • weirdroid

        Yes it’s the same as the One X but with the button and kickstand… AND SD expansion slot which I want and use all the time. I still like mine so much I don’t even want to change it, and I don’t like the current M8 all that much. I do like the look of this M8 “Prime” picture. The design is flatter and more symmetric. If the size is still pocketable I might buy it.

  • Rob Beijendorf

    I can’t help but to feel like this isn’t real. The design-language isn’t in the curvy dimensions of HTC and the colours aren’t what HTC usually do in their purist spirit.

    Also, that camera hump isn’t lying symmetrically flat on the back of the device. Bad render?

    • Jeans

      Yes you right Ivan and Igor was doing it in shed on knee then too few pictures.

      Soon Ivan said will cut better piece and now they went to Specsavers.

    • weirdroid

      I wouldn’t doubt any render from evleaks

  • MattB

    Does this phone have a quality camera, or the same pos camera as the M8?

  • Jeans

    The best phone so far and if you dont like it you more them welcome for Samsung.

  • bloodbond3

    I’d love them to eliminate the now-useless black bar and shrink the device back down to a sub-5-inch screen. I like what Sony did with the Xperia Z1 Compact. No shortcuts taken with the specs, just a smaller, equally-powerful device.

    • ciph3ro

      I second this

  • roger’d

    Hmmm, why would they move the power button to the side?

    • Rithvik Rao

      So you can actually use the gargantuan thing? :P

      • roger’d

        LOL probably right. I really like the current placement on my M8 though… ;)

  • Andres Galvan

    Looks way too much like the Evo LTE. HTC’s been trying to get away from it’s old design language, and I don’t think they would deviate that much from the M8′s looks, either.

  • Ahmadovich

    Looks stunning!

  • Pablo
  • Andy

    But will it keep the same great camera tech or will they join the pointless mega pixel war and remove the low light quality it has now.

  • LOLFanboysaredumb

    I’ve loved my Note 2 since I first got it and still do. However HTC, this device is my next phone.

  • Will S.

    It looks stunning! But they should have somehow covered those black bars with speakers…

  • Don Wingle

    I just picked up an HTC1M8 Harman-Kardon edition,anyone have any info on this phone? I’m not sure yet if I will keep it or get the S5 like I planned to do in the first place.This has a black back,and the area where the speakers are is gold colored,nice looking and the speakers are fantastic compared to the S4 I had.

  • Akshay Sharma

    super sexy phone , much good looking than m8.

  • great link

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
