HTC One 2 leaks with largely unchanged design

New HTC One M8 images have leaked ahead of the phone’s formal unveiling, with the second-generation handset tipped to feature a design markedly similar to the original.

With the HTC One 2 widely expected to launch at a post MWC 2014 press conference in March, the eagerly awaited handset has made yet another premature appearance. The latest claimed images have shown off a handset with a sleek, brushed metal finish largely similar to last year’s HTC One.

Leaking via Twitter and the HTCFamily account, the claimed HTC One 2 image, which we must stress should be taken with a pinch of salt, shows a handset with screen-bordering BoomSound speakers and a forward-facing camera mounted on the handset’s upper edge.

Backing up further HTC One 2 rumours and leaks, the teased shot has again suggested that the phone will lose its current soft-touch Android controls in favour of digital, on screen options.

Although not highlighted in the latest leaked shots, recent HTC One 2 images have also claimed the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 rival will sport a dual-sensor rear-mounted camera for improve image focusing and metering in low-light conditions.

Further HTC One 2 specs to do the rounds early have suggested the handset will boast a 5-inch, 1080p Full HD display alongside 2GB of RAM, a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor and Google’s latest Android 4.4 KitKat OS.

It's probably a good thing that HTC is sticking with a similar design. The HTC One was and still is one of the best designed phones around, and HTC badly need some visual continuity to build a brand from their design language.

I don't want to be one of those people, but I do sometimes wonder why we don't see a
"New iPhone leaks with largely unchanged design" articles...

Seriously though, I think HTC need to stick with the design they have. The HTC One was applauded for it's design, so why change it? It's recognisable and stylish, just what any brand ends for their top-end devices. Nowadays phones all look so similar that to have something like this on their hands is golden.

Why must they put that stupid HTC logo on the bottom front of the device? Such a waste of space. Could've been used to make the phone slightly smaller or make the screen bigger.

I highly doubt that's a real pic. There's no reason they would leave so much space on the bottom.

This is clearly not the final design, just some kind of attempt to slander HTC because the current One carries high premium design as a trademark, compared to the plastic others. Or it could be a boring but oh so common pr stunt.
