All New HTC One stars in lengthy hands-on video ahead of official debut [UPDATED]Alex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
The follow-up to the HTC One won't be officially announced until March 25, but we've already got a pretty good idea of what the upcoming Android flagship is all about thanks to a flurry of leaks that've surfaced in recent weeks, including spec reports and official-looking renders. I'm not one to ignore early peeks at unannounced smartphone hardware no matter how many times we've already seen it, though, and I'm betting that you feel the same way. That's why I'm betting that you'll want to be aware of a 12-minute hands-on video with an AT&T version of the HTC M8 that was posted to YouTube tonight.
Shared by YouTube user "GadgetReviews," the clip is 12 minutes and 19 seconds of pure HTC M8/All New HTC One goodness. The video includes a number of comparison shots with the HTC M8 and the current HTC One as well as peeks at the M8's rear cameras, on-screen buttons and microSD card slot. We're also given a good look at the new handset's refreshed camera UI.
Unfortunately, and unsurprisingly, the original video has been pulled. I've included a handful of images from the clip below, as well as an embed in case it somehow gets activated one again. The HTC M8 shown in the video looks similar to the device that's appeared in all of the recent image leaks, showing a nice evolution of the original HTC One with rounded corners and a microSD slot, the latter of which is something that I'm sure many folks will be excited about. There's no word yet on when we'll be able to spend some hands-on time with the M8 like the kid in this video, but the good news is that March is here and we're only a few weeks away from HTC's big reveal. Get excited!
UPDATE: The video has been reuploaded to YouTube by "Nicky Perdaen." You can check it out below.
