The All New HTC One with a special flip cover leaks, GPE variant also on the way


Here is a rather large leak for a Saturday afternoon. Courtesy of @evleaks, you are looking at a The All New HTC One’s very own flip cover. What is very interesting about this one is that the flip cover utilizes the holes in it to light and display information. So, for example, the time and weather can be displayed. And I think it is safe to assume that it can do plenty of other things like text and email notifications. It is very unique when compared to Samsung’s as this one does not require a cutout to see a portion of the screen when information needs to be displayed.

The other end of this leak involves the device having a Google Play Edition. Just like the HTC One, @evleaks says to “look for M8 to arrive as a Google Play Edition.” When will it arrive in the Play Store as a GPE device? I would say a few months after launch. So it is likely by summer we will have The All New HTC One in the Play Store as a Google Play Edition device.

    Im liking the sound of the new HTC. Im very disappointed with the s5 design and can see me moving away from Samsung. I wanted metal but didn’t get it. The s5 look is ugly like the s4 that I had and I sold. Moved to a note 3 but might downsize to this HTC. Looks can be everything Sometimes!

    This is definitely one device to look for

      Agreed. Looks to be a really, really respectable device. And this flip cover is a great idea to make something unique for it.

    I currently own the first generation HTC One and couldn’t be happier. I wish that they wouldn’t have omitted the micro SD capability. So the smartphone I’m going to pick up is none other than the HTC One Max. You just can’t beat the looks and build quality.
