The New HTC One (M8) Caught On Video [Rather Poorly] – [Update: Video Private; Re-Uploaded; HTC Investigates]

M8

The new HTC flagship, the M8, also known as the One 2, One+ or All New One, whatever leak you wish to believe, has been caught in front of a video camera. The person filming it has gotten their hands on a unit early, and honestly, this kid (judging by the voice) has no clue what he is doing, which makes the video almost unbearable.

Anyway, take a look at the video below and let us know what you think eh? The M8 will be announced on March 25th. We will bring you coverage of the event right here, so make sure you keep an eye out for that.

Update: Seems the video has since gone private. Not surprising really given the uploader clearly has a unit he shouldn’t and also made the rookie mistake of showing off some IMEI numbers (easily traced back when these phones should only be in the hands of a select few).

Update 2: Its been re-uploaded by another user

Update 3: Well well. I wasn’t wrong. HTC are “investigating” the leak, and thanks to the rookie errors made, they have the IMEI and the means to track the uploader, Roshan Jamkatel. Jamkatel claims the phone is a “Fake” and that he bought it from a source that said it mimiced earlier leaks. Alright buddy, because the software can be easily faked when its not been leaked.

Jeff Gordon, better known as @Urbanstrata on Twitter, is a HTC communications exec that made it public they’re looking in to this. Tweets have since been deleted, but our friends at Ausdroid took a few screenshots of the exchange between Gordon and Jamkatel.
