Among the number of rumored handsets that are supposedly set up for launch this year, HTC's One M8 Prime has been one device which has been leaked online several times. Moreover, leaks and rumors surrounding the device are ample as it started surfacing online since couple of months.
Now, vivid press images along with a full 360 degree GIF render has arrived online showing the handset in its full glory. But that's not the only news. Unless you have been living under a rock, there were also mild rumors suggesting that the HTC One M8 would have two variants. Obviously one is HTC One M8 Prime and now the other variant has also been leaked. It comes dubbed as HTC One M8 Ace.
HTC One M8 Prime is, as you now know, an improved variant of the One M8, although the HTC One M8 Ace is going be a cheaper variant of M8. Moreover, it is said to come with a plastic-build. Take a look at the alleged image of the handset above.
The Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC will use the same Duo camera on Prime. But as you can see in the image, there is a protruded camera module in this variant which was unexpected and looks somewhat odd in the even HTC One M8 body.
If you are worried about the specs, culminating all the leaks and rumors, the HTC One M8 Prime would come with a 5.5-inch QHD (2560x1440p) display. It would be powered by a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM, water/ dust resistance, Cat 6 LTE, and Sense 6.5 with Android. Moreover, as the recent leak suggests, the HTC M8 Prime is made of unique aluminum-silicon material.
When it comes to the cheaper variant of the One M8, it evidently looks like more curved than the HTC One M8 Prime. The design is somewhat similar but it lacks the signature Duo camera module of the One M8. Instead, it has only one camera on the back with LED flash and the power button has been moved to the center, at the top.
Both these devices are expected to get launched this year itself. However, there are not much information pertaining to the exact date of launch, while the pricing of the devices are still something which are yet to be disclosed.
Obviously, the upcoming HTC One M8 Prime will battle against upcoming monster devices like Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime and LG G3. Moreover, it will also stand against the rumored Xperia Z3 from Sony.
