According to a Twitter post earlier yesterday, Evleaks who's posts have been somewhat spot on most of the time, posted the following: https://twitter.com/evleaks/status/430100761783988224 This correlates with a post from Dan back on January 14, in which Bloomberg reported that sources close to a project consider the M8 to be the successor to the very popular HTC One, with a launch in late March.

HTC One, the so called HTC M8, would come with on screen buttons instead of the usual capacity buttons the company normally uses for its device lineup. As per the picture above, it shows the standard back, home, and multi-tasking Android buttons. This design fits with the Nexus 5 and Motorola devices like the Moto X and RAZR line which also exclusively use on-screen buttons. Having on-screen buttons instead of capacitive buttons would be a welcome break away from the norm for HTC's flagship...

We're starting to get a few leaks about HTC's upcoming successor to their 2013 flagship, which at this stage is only known by its internal name, the M8. One of the more interesting points is that the M8 would have no capacitive buttons, and notorious tech leakster @evleaks has backed up this rumour in a tweet this morning. https://twitter.com/evleaks/status/427783956495609856 One of the few criticisms that we had of the HTC One was the odd-button layout, and that HTC persisted in using capacitive buttons, which added to the already large bezel size of the device.

Evan is now reporting that he's aware the same render was sent to a number of publications, with different corroborating evidence, which he believes (and we'd tend to agree) is the sign of a not-too-elaborate hoax. Sorry folks. Nexus 10 update goes back to the rumour pile. We've seen some pretty terrible 'leaks/renders' over the last couple of months of supposed successors to the now 14 month old Nexus 10, but this morning we have seen a pretty credible leak from noted internet leaker @evleaks. While Evan Blass,... Continue readingUpdate: It looks as if this render might be a hoax.
CES 2014 now out of the way, the next big thing on the mobile devices landscape is Mobile World Congress at the end of February, and many had been anticipating a discussion of the Samsung Galaxy S5 at this event. It seems, however, that Samsung will be skipping an announcement at MWC, instead favouring an announcement to be held in London in March. https://twitter.com/flapic/status/422315349154213888 While we might have to wait a little longer for an announcement, the folks over at SamMobile have supposedly had confirmed a number of specifications for the upcoming 2014 flagship, as well as some...
