Usually reliable source @evleaks has tweeted that the M8, the internal codename for HTC’s new top-of-the-range handset, will be launched in NYC in March. It had so far been expected that HTC would officially launch the handset at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February …

The M8 is the heir apparent to the HTC One, which was codenamed the M7. Earlier leaks suggest that it will have a 5-inch 1080p display and be powered by a Snapdragon 800 processor. It’s expected to be available on all four US national carriers.

Poor-quality photos of the claimed casing appeared in China back in November.
