Adding to a slew of rumors surrounding the HTC One successor, a new press render claims to show the next-generation HTC flagship smartphone in a protective case.

The much-rumored HTC One successor has been referred to by many names, including the HTC M8, HTC One 2, HTC One 2014, HTC One+ or, more recently, the "all new HTC One". The HTC M8 moniker is the most widely used, and the device has leaked on several occasions so far.

One of the most reliable tipsters, the well-known @evleaks, has now posted a new image that is purportedly a press image of the HTC M8. The newly-leaked photo shows the alleged smartphone in a protective case and comes with the description "HTC M8, protected.

As you can see above, the image shows the purported HTC M8 with a front-facing camera (likely a 2.1-megapixel shooter, based on reports), complete with flash. The handset pictured here also sports dual speaker grills on its front. The user interface is believed to be the new HTC Sense 6.0 UI, which is expected to come on top of Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box when the smartphone makes its debut.

According to rumors so far, the HTC M8 will feature a 5-inch QHD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 and come with dual UltraPixel cameras on its back, as well as dual LED flash. The twin UltraPixel cameras will reportedly enhance the camera's autofocus, image quality, as well as depth of field, allowing for higher-quality photos. It remains unclear at this point, however, just how many megapixels and what resolution the cameras will offer.

At the same time, previous information from @evleaks claimed that the HTC One successor will come with a 5-inch 1080p display, not QHD. The same tipster said the HTC M8 will pack a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 processor with 2GB of RAM, as well as Sense 6.0 on top of KitKat.

The company has recently hinted that its highly-anticipated HTC M8 handset will make its official debut on next month, as HTC has posted a "Save the Date" announcement for March 25. On the other hand, nothing is for certain at this point and it is advisable to take all such news with a grain of salt until the company officially unveils its HTC One successor, whatever it may be called.
