Earlier this week, a number of leaks on Twitter gave us our first look at the HTC One successor – the HTC M8. The new device is expected to look a lot like the HTC One, but will be upgraded with much better specs. Now a new leak has given us a better look at the new home screen.
The ever reliable @evleaks has shared what appears to be the home screen for the HTC M8. It’s readily apparent that HTC won’t be making any significant changes to its software with its newest hardware as BlinkFeed looks largely the same. In fact, the only real difference is that the HTC M8 will be the first HTC device with on-screen navigation buttons.

According to Droid-Life, it appears that the HTC M8 is running Android 4.4, or KitKat. They say it’s none too surprising considering that the HTC One has already been upgraded to the latest version of Android on a number of carriers.
So, when can we expect to see the HTC M8 or even learn its real name? According to @evleaks, HTC will be holding a New York launch event in late March. That puts the HTC M8 about one year and a month after the reveal of last year’s HTC One. The One didn’t make it to carriers until April though so a March reveal may push the M8’s launch into May.
