The alleged HTC M8, aka the purported successor of the current HTC One flagship smartphone, has leaked in another shot, showing its front panel with on-screen buttons.

The purported HTC M8 has leaked extensively as of late, with anticipation building up ahead of its expected unveiling sometime in March.

Just a few days ago, an image allegedly showing the HTC M8 has surfaced online. The photo in question emerged from Twitter user HTCFamily.ru, showing the back of the handset with dual-sensors for camera and flash. While there were suspicions regarding the legitimacy of the image, some subsequent leaks seemed to bolster those claims.

Fast forward to present date and we now have another leak from the same HTCFamily.ru tipster, this time showing the front of the purported HTC M8, complete with on-screen buttons for extra screen real estate.

The legitimacy of the images still remains unconfirmed, but the new leak does fall in line with previous reports that claimed the HTC M8 would sport a similar design to its predecessor, but incorporate on-screen buttons.

The language on the main home screen in this image seems to be Taiwanese, i.e. HTC's mother tongue. The handset appears to be larger and a bit more elongated than the HTC One, and there's also an LED notification light right between the camera and the top speaker on the front of the device. This LED light notification is something new, as the HTC One doesn't have this detail. On the other hand, this image may well turn out to be fake, as there's no way to confirm its validity at this point.

Based on reports and speculation so far, the HTC M8 is expected to sport a 5-inch full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB or 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage capacity, and a microSD card slot for additional memory. The next-generation HTC flagship smartphone is expected to come with Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box, complete with HTC Sense 6.0 UI, and feature on-screen buttons.

With no official confirmation, however, it's highly advisable to take this leak, and all others, with a hefty grain of salt. As previously mentioned, HTC is rumored to unveil its HTC One successor in March at a press event in New York City, but nothing is for certain at this point. We'll make sure to keep you up to date as soon as we learn more, but maintain a healthy dose of skepticism for now.
