HTC M8 Ace shows up in possible render with new launch name suggestion


Over the course of the past week, a bunch of new information has arrived concerning rumors of a new HTC One-series model, the M8 Ace. First we got a render that was supposedly confirmed by a second source, and then we saw China’s TENAA publish official pics of a phone that sure seemed to match the initial leak that arrived all the way back at the start of April. We start this week off with a new render, but this time it might be the source of more questions than answers.

The rear of this silver phone you see up above is a dead ringer for last week’s render of the back of the M8 Ace – same angle and everything, just in a different color. But this time we also get a front shot… and it doesn’t look like that TENAA pic at all. Gone is the expansive speaker grille, in favor for a cookie-cutter copy of the One M8.

So which is the real M8 Ace? Is this new pic just a fan render, cobbled together from multiple sources? Perhaps, but that rear shot really looks the part, leaving us a little unsure where to place our bets.

As if that uncertainty wasn’t enough, we also pick up a new candidate for the M8 Ace’s launch name: the One M8 “Vogue Edition.” Like similar reports of a One Style or Fashion Edition, we wonder if this is some artifact of a poor translation, but it’s worth keeping in mind, all the same. According to this source, the phone could launch as soon as June 3, just over one week from now.
