Over the last few weeks, especially after the launch of Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC has trolled the smartphone leader for its inability to give a true marquee phone; the company took to Twitter to mock the rival.
One of the messages said, "Buyer's remorse: Coming soon to S5 owners. March 25" followed by another tweet - "Hope they're ready to be One-upped. See it. Hear it. Feel it. March 25".
Samsung Galaxy S5's features may have been tad disappointing for some tech enthusiasts, but, now the focus would be on HTC, which produced the 'Best Smartphone' of 2013 (awarded by consortium of GSM association at Mobile World Congress 2014); Will the company re-create newer and worthy successor to its flagship phone, we just have to wait few more hours.
HTC M8 aka All New HTC One is expected to come with all-metal (airplane grade Aluminum) uni-body with zero-gap design and run on the latest Android KitKat OS with custom Sense UI powered by the latest 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 series CPU.

As per the leaked images (courtesy, @evleaks), HTC M8's rear-side is seen flaunting two-cameras, one with wider circumference having metal ring, and a Dual-LED flash light at the side and a second snapper sitting atop the bigger camera module.
