HTC's M8 Rumoured for "Late March" Announcement Instead of Debuting at MWC?

By Gary Cutlack on at

The 2014 HTC flagship smartphone may skip the usual launch at Mobile World Congress in February, with sources claiming HTC's going to go it alone, Samsung-style, and demonstrate is next model at a standalone event in March. Which suggests an April launch is on the cards as ever.

The news comes via usually-right Twitter news source EVLeaks, which uploaded the short message: "Starting to look like a late March, NYC launch for HTC M8." We've previously seen benchmarks suggest the M8 will arrive powered by an extremely capable Snapdragon 800 chipset, with version 6.0 of HTC's Sense user interface atop the usual Android base layer.
