HTC One 2 release date tipped for mid-April

Ahead of the phone’s formal unveiling, a selection of HTC One M8 cases have leaked, hinting that the HTC One 2 release date will be held in ‘mid-April’.

Although far from a formal confirmation – and we suggest these leaks are taken with a decent pinch of salt – the mid April leaked HTC One 2 release date would be fitting with previous reports.

What’s more, if accurate, the leaked launch window would see the eagerly awaited handset hit retailers within days of the rival Samsung Galaxy S5 (April 11) and Sony Xperia Z2 (April 10).

As well as teasing the HTC One 2 release date, the leaked cases have offered yet more confirmation that the eagerly awaited handset will play host to a dual-lens rear-mounted camera.

Showcasing a device with more rounded corners than last year’s original HTC One, the prematurely unveiled HTC One 2 cases have teased a handset with the innovative Duo snapper as well as a dual-LED flash.

Teased by accessory manufacturer Spigen, the cases are available for pre-order now ahead of the mid-April release priced $24.99 (£14.97).

The product listing states: “The Slim Armor case for the HTC One 2 (M8) is specifically designed to protect the device at all angles. The TPU case features improved shock absorption on the top, bottom, and corners to effectively protect the HTC One 2 (M8) from external impact.”

Far from the first time the upcoming phone has been teased, in recent weeks a range of HTC One 2 rumours have suggested that the handset will run a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 processor and Google’s Android 4.4 KitKat OS alongside a 5-inch Full HD display and revolutionary camera options.
