New HTC One front and rear leaked photos

Jonesing for a peek behind the pixelation that obscured the new HTC One in that video teaser from last night? Well today's your lucky day, because a large batch of photos that show HTC's upcoming flagship in the wild have been posted to Chinese social networking site Weibo.

Shared by TD Beta, the photos show off a China Mobile-branded HTC M8 device from nearly all angles. We're treated to close-ups of its rounded corners, front-facing BoomSound speakers and dual rear cameras. Also included is a peek at the M8's lock screen and even some comparison photos that include the M8 and its older, bigger HTC One max sibling. Those shots show just how the M8's corners are indeed more rounded than those found on its predecessor.

While the new HTC One features a design that's similar to its predecessor, there are some notable changes that separate the new device from the old. Those include the aforementioned rounded corners, dual rear cameras and the switch from capacitive navigation buttons on the original One to on-screen keys with the M8. We'll get a better look at those features and more at an HTC event on March 25. Until then, you can hit up the gallery below for a close look at HTC's next big thing.

UPDATE: A new video that shows a T-Mobile version of the HTC M8 has been posted to YouTube. The clip is a bit on the dark side, but it does give us another look at the M8 and also confirms a few details about the device itself. We're shown that the M8 sports 32GB of built-in storage as well as a microSD card slot for additional memory and that it's powered by a combination of Android 4.4.2 KitKat and HTC Sense 6.0. The brief video is embedded below.
