Latest HTC One M8 video leak compares it to original HTC One

The latest HTC One M8 video leak has provided a full comparison to the original HTC One.

It seems consumers are eager to sneak their HTC One M8 video leaks out before the official launch this afternoon, March 25.

This new 10-minute long video shows the differences between the original HTC One and the 2014 flagship, laying the phones side by side.

Following extensive leaked information that has already emerged, the video actually offers very little new information, but provides a fantastic look at the key differences between the two devices.

The video also offers a near complete specs sheet for the original One and the new HTC One M8, which makes it easier to see where internal hardware upgrades have been made.

According to the voiceover from TechSmartt, the HTC One M8 “has more of a polished design” and its rounded edges give it a “more comfortable and premium feel” than the original.

Earlier leaks suggest the One M8 will be available in three colours from launch – grey, silver and gold – with the grey version shown off in this video against the silver HTC One.

The video leak also goes through the new HTC Sense 6.0 software in quite some detail, suggesting the new BlinkFeed 2.0 home screen is compatible with more apps than ever before.

The HTC Zoe photography software has also been improved, especially with a new Selfie mode taking advantage of the upgraded 5-megapixel front-facing camera.

A quick summary of the HTC One M8 specs include a 5-inch full 1080p HD screen with a 440ppi image density powered by a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 processor with 2GB of RAM. It runs the new HTC Sense 6.0 UI over Android 4.4.2 KitKat and is powered by a 2600mAh battery.

Around back is a dual-sensor rear camera, with a main 4-megapixel UltraPixel sensor and dual LED flash, similar to the TruTone flash of the iPhone 5S.
