The HTC M8 is no longer a mystery to us as numerous leaks have given away every detail we wanted to know about the smartphone. One of those rumors also claimed that HTC will ditch the capacitive navigation buttons usually found at the bottom of the screen and make way for onscreen navigation keys, which is how Google wants every future smartphone to be launched. A new leak coming out of Weibo has now revealed the layout of these onscreen navigation buttons resembling stock Android smartphones (back, home and menu keys).
This could mean that the M8 will sport a slightly narrower bezel as HTC doesn’t need extra space for the buttons anymore. So expect the HTC M8 or the One+ to have a similar size as the HTC One, despite sporting a bigger display. We are yet to get a glimpse of the smartphone, so we don’t know if the design is all that different from the HTC One. The HTC M8 is rumored to pack a 5 inch 1080p display, a quad core Snapdragon 800 SoC, a fingerprint scanner, 2GB of RAM and Android 4.4 KitKat. The announcement should take place by the end of February which is when the MWC event kicks off as well.
