All New HTC One (M8): Full Specs, Pictures and Videos Surface
The All New HTC One (or HTC M8) will officially be unveiled on March 25th, but there won't be much left for the Taiwanese company to unveil after full specs, images and even videos of HTC's smartphone have surfaced.
An Australian operator (Telstra) has spilled the beans on the specification of the All New HTC One. Revealing that the smartphone has a 5-inch 1080p display with dimensions of 146.36mm x 70.6mm x 9.35mm and a weight of 160 grams.
HTC's new flagship is powered by a Snapdragon 801 Quad-core processor running at 2.3 GHz with 2GB of RAM. It comes with 16GB of onboard memory (with microSD support), has a 2600mAH battery and uses a nano-SIM (like Apple's iPhone range).
The listing also revealed that it comes with a Duo Camera on the rear with an Ultrapixel sensor and it also has a front-facing 5 mega-pixel snapper. While, the All New HTC One will come with stereo HTC BoomSound speakers and HTC Sense 6.0.
We also got an idea of the price with the smartphone costing $840 (Aus), which equates to around £450. It'll be available in a choice of Gold, Grey or Silver.
We've been intrigued by the All New HTC One's Duo Camera ever since we first heard about it. Why do you need two sensors? What will they be they used for? The mystery was also unravelled by the smartphones appearance on the Australian operators website.
HTC's Duo Camera will be used to choose the focus point of an image and to add effects to images, including 3D effects. You'll be able to adjust the focus, which is already possible on other smartphones) - but the addition of a second lens means you won't need to take multiple shots in order to so.
Presumably, you'll also be able to shoot 3D videos and take 3D pictures. Some questions still remain: What type of effects can you add, can it record 4K video and do you get optical-image-stabilisation? We'll find out more on March 25th at the smartphones official unveiling!

HTC themselves have also posted official teaser videos for the All New HTC One confirming that feature improved HTC Boomsound speakers, an Ultrapixel camera and a unibody aluminium design. You won't learn a great deal from the videos, but they are a lot of fun.
