Just before being announced to the public, a leaked hands-on video of the new HTC One (M8) showed every side of the new flagship device and even demoed a run-through of its Sense 6.6 UI atop KitKat.
This 12-minute video was apparently recorded last month but was only released last Sunday. According to the source, the original video was taken down but a copy has managed to stay online. The hands-on look at the new HTC One was neither clear nor structured (but we’re still thankful!) and we’ve only managed to gather few hard facts regarding its specs. Here’s the video:
Recap of the video for the all new HTC One:
Similar physique as its predecessor
Bigger screen size
Dual rear cameras
Different flash (looks dual flash)
Headphones moved to the bottom
Sensor moved beside front camera
Absence of physical buttons
Now has microSD expansion
Runs Sense 6.6 on top of KitKat
Beats Music app
“It has really nice cameras”
Although not everything was discussed in detail, at least we’ve seen it in action, held by someone, and not just in pictures. Also, it’s just a few more weeks until March 25 comes and the new flagship gets official.
