According to our earlier report, HTC will be looking to launch mid-ranged devices in 2014. In 2013, the Taiwanese company did not exactly focus on mid-ranged devices, unlike in 2012 where we had phones like the HTC One S and HTC One V which were low-mid ranged handsets. Well it seems that HTC will indeed be keeping to their words, thanks to a recently leaked photo from Chinese website, MyDrivers, which apparently shows off an upcoming handset from HTC called the New Desire 8. The folks at Engadget have also managed to get their hands on the alleged original image, thanks to their source which you can see in the image above.
In any case HTC has yet to make an official announcement regarding the New Desire 8 handset, but according to the rumors, the handset is said to sport a 5.5-inch display along with a 13MP rear-facing camera, a 5MP front-facing camera, and will be available in a variety of colors such as white, red, yellow, orange, and cyan. It also looks like the design of the handset has taken some cues from the HTC One as it appears to sport front-facing stereo speakers as well. Also based on what we can see, it looks like the device will also feature on-screen buttons just like the HTC M8 is rumored to have as well. In any case the device looks pretty sleek and elegant and could make a worthy mid-ranged handset, but until we hear from HTC, take it with a grain of salt for now.
