All new HTC One leaks hands-on video before launch

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.

    • Abutroll says:

      Bakit bumili ka ba ng htc one? E nagbasa/nanood ka lang ng reviews online feeling mo meron kana rin nyan. So feeling mo naloko ka nila? #BasagAngTrip

    • Babuzalzal says:

      sir gano po kalaki mga bezels nito? Saka gano po kalaki bezels ng mukha niyo?

      Pakiconfirm po pls. As accurate as possible sana. wag po gumamit ng analogy pls??? Thanks sir Bezelzel!

    • Gaguzalzal says:

      sir gaano kalaki ang bezel mo sa noo? pasukat nga? :)

    • Ako says:

      Ung bottom speaker + HTC logo/bezel, epic ang laki kinain space hahaha. Buti na spoil kesa nagkaroon pa ng hype sa isang big disappointment.

    • Rockafella says:

      Haha sikat ka talaga dito Abu, pagbigyan mo na sukatin mo na bezel ng ano ng nanay nila

    • htconeuser says:

      wow ha? kung makapag comment ka?
      meron kabang HTC one? pano mo nasabing naloko
      kaming mga bumili nun? oo may problem nga sa camera yung purple tint pag sa dilim
      pero lagi ka bang sa dilim mag pipicture?
      other than that, its perfect boomsound sulit na agad kami eh. mapapahiya na ibang brand nang cellphone pag dating sa sound quality.
      genuine design? I compare it with s4 and xperia z1. nakopo wala silang sinabi.

      im proud to have my HTC one!

    Abe, i need to contact PLOGHOST. Down yung website and email namin. Ano ba nangyayari?

    that dumb kid had so much stupidity on his head. Got his father fired from HTC.

    • Ako says:

      Thanks to that kid for saving us from an incoming disappointment

    • Ex-Alodian Knight says:

      Let’s hope the kid gets community service or even life…just for leaking the surprise.

      He doesn’t deserve the respect of us techies or HTC itself.

  6. wew says:

    para san kaya ung 2 rear cameras?para makapagenerate ng 3D image/video?

    • Ako says:

      Isang bagong uri ng gimmick to gain some attention, hindi pa rin nadala sa ultrapixel nila hehehe

  7. Ex-Alodian Knight says:

    Roshan Jamkatel is the true identity of Abuzalzal.

    • Ex-Alodian Knight says:

      *not the true identity. but He is the uploader of the said video.

      Reddit also has posted a $10k bounty for Roshan to give the phone to a rival company

  8. Dindo says:

    Pwede rin ba magkaroon ng hands-on with the writer? =)

  9. Critic says:

    The hands in the video does not look like they’re from a kid. The video also came out during the Oscar’s with Samsung’s ad campaign for its S5. What’s up with the timing?

  10. kami says:

    after seeing various leaked photos, quiet disappointed sa navigation bar, laki ng kinain sa screen, hindi mo maapreciate yung laki at ganda ng screen. parang sony Xperia Z up series. pati yung nexus 5. kung sana soft keys na lang (sana tama) diba? no need to increase yung dimension ng phone.

    i mean, ano silbi ng 5.2 inch phone kung ang laki naman ng sakop ng software based keys?

    sana may point ako. hahaha
