Last week we got what might be the biggest break so far in working-out the mystery behind the design of HTC’s M8, expected to be the company’s next flagship model. First one case design revealed a very unusual configuration for the phone’s back, either lending support to the idea of a One Max-style fingerprint scanner, or for that rumor that the phone could sport a pair of independent cameras around back. While the debate continues over which school of thought will prevail, some additional images of cases turned up on retailer sites, and this evening we get to check out some new shots of this gear.
These cases match those we saw in the second set of pics from last week, but rather than being prim and proper official images, these show the actual cases in the wild – or as near to that as we’re going to get at this point. We know they come from a source in China, which makes sense given the provenance of the pics we saw already, but that’s the extent of the info arriving alongside these new guys.
As we start closing in on when HTC will presumably launch this phone, we’re left wondering: when are we going to get a shot of the actual hardware – and hopefully with a rear view – so we can finally put this rumor to rest?
