All New HTC One (M8) detailed in hands-on video leak

“Today is February 19th, Wednesday, and … this phone is not out yet. But I get the phones early because I’m … sponsored.”

So begins the most lengthy, in-depth, and thoroughly shady phone-leak video we’ve ever laid eyes on, and it stars none other than HTC’s as-yet unreleased flagship, the All New HTC One (previously known as the M8). In addition to an up-close-and-personal view of a star-spangled comforter, we’re treated to a full tour of what appears to be a black All-New HTC One for AT&T’s network.

Included in this tour: a side-by-side comparison with last year’s HTC One, questionable assertions regarding Beats Audio, and some pretty entertaining speculation regarding just why the phone might have “protected” software. (For the record, the opening chorus to “Crank Dat Soulja Boy” is equally startling on both old and new HTC Ones.)

Contacted regarding this video, HTC declined to comment.

Check out the video below before it’s pulled (again), and sound off with your speculation on just how this leak came to pass in the comments below.

(Thanks, @AlexanderGrenon!)

Update: UnleashThePhones is reporting that HTC has already commenced an investigation into the matter, citing tweets (since deleted) between an HTC exec and the suspected leaker. We’ll bring you more on this as it comes to us.
