HTC One M8 Prime purportedly shows up flaunting a larger camera

HTC One M8 Prime

Rumors of a higher-end edition of the HTC One M8, the M8 Prime, have been difficult to pin down; we’ve seen little in the way of tangible evidence. However, things just got interesting.

Frequent tipster @evleaks has posted what’s reportedly a 360-degree render of the Prime, showing off a design with a few big differences from the current model. The most obvious may be the camera — it’s conspicuously bigger than that of the regular One, and it even juts out from the back. The phone also has a flatter, One Max-like body with a different surface than the current handset. According to @evleaks, the cosmetic change may stem from the use of an unusual aluminum and liquid silicone hybrid that would be both strong and heat-absorbing.

While the imagery doesn’t reveal much about what’s inside the device, rumored specs have hinted that it wouldn’t strictly be a One Max sequel. It would be the most powerful HTC phone yet with a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM and a 2,560 x 1,440 screen resolution, but its 5.5-inch display wouldn’t be quite so gargantuan as the 6-inch panel of the Max. That’s assuming the render and the hardware details are authentic in the first place, mind you. Although @evleaks has developed a reputation for mostly accurate scoops, HTC’s own Jeff Gordon has alluded to him getting a couple of elements “completely wrong” as of late.
