Exactly one week ago we’ve heard rumors that HTC might ditch the current capacitive button approach, find on its devices, and use on-screen buttons for the upcoming M8 instead. We’re now seeing how these might look on the screen of the HTC One follow-up, as per the image above. Needless to say that, if true, such a placement will free up some bezel space on the device which might end up either smaller, or, at worse, the same in terms of dimensions, despite the rumored larger, five-inch screen.

Of note is also the fact that the back button above seems to be different than the < arrow HTC used on its recent models. As a matter of fact you can see the Back buttons for the most recent HTC devices in the image below. It wouldn’t be the first time a company changes the aspect of its Android buttons, so this alone shouldn’t make you wave this off.

@evleaks hints that HTC will not show off the M8 at MWC in Barcelona, which isn’t surprising, as the One wasn’t an MWC phone either. Instead, we’re should probably expect a late-March unveiling at a special New York event, just like in 2013.
