The HTC One (M8) was just announced a few weeks ago, but today we’re seeing what looks like the first of several M8 variants HTC has planned for the rest of 2014. A blurry photo of the device, allegedly called the HTC One (M8) Ace, was posted online earlier today by @evleaks, who has a solid track record when it comes to leaking new devices. Soon afterward a second picture of the same phone from HTC tipster @HTCFamily_RU appeared, this time without the blurred screen and clearly running Sense 6 software.
Unfortunately, today’s photo doesn’t tell us much of anything about the M8 Ace. The device apparently comes in red and boasts extremely thin bezels. It also appears to feature massive speaker grilles along the entire top on bottom of the front panel, though that could just be the poor image quality we’re seeing.
Last month when HTC announced the One (M8), @evleaks hinted that the company was also planning an M8 Mini and M8 Ace. Based on that lineup we’d guess the Ace is probably a super-sized version of the flagship phone, similar to last year’s HTC One Max. It could also be a cheaper full-sized version of the M8 or something else entirely. There’s no way to know for now, though hopefully HTC will make another announcement soon.
