So here is the ultimate combination of everything leaked so far, since we have finally seen a glimpse of the front

HTC M8 mockup v2a

I think I'm getting pretty close

The only thing to keep in mind is the the corners are almost surely more rounded than my renders

Since the capacitive buttons are gone, i thought we should also see how it looks with the screen off

Full Size v2a_on

Full Size v2a_off

Sense 6 mockup with one of the leaked wallpapers and the new notification icons

Keep in mind the actual size of those wallpapers is 2160x1080 which must mean the background is again scrolling

All the leaks and some explanation:

here we notice the new top camera hole which is machined like the One Mini, also only one flash in this early prototype or actually its one hole for both but too small to notice, the metal unibody now extends to the sides

In this 3d print (which is mostly used to make covers) we notice that the dual flash ring is one and has a unique curve-in to the right in parallel with the camera ring, we also notice two faint additional camera rings one on top and another to the right of the main camera, this same confusion is also repeated in one of the alibaba covers, we have a clear view of the front, the speakers grills, how the front camera and sensors are next to each other they share the same space of the top speaker grill, we can also notice a very wide opening to the right of the device this is where the volume buttons and SD slot must be, to the left we notice the SIM opening a little lower than the M7 (parallel to the camera) of course the SIM and SD might be flipped as well but there is no way to confirm this yet, finally the corners are definitely more rounded on this one

we notice the left and right ports in this cover with the volume buttons below them to the right, two mystery holes on this one maybe suggesting different prototypes

here we can see it a little bigger than the M7 in height, probably like the Butterfly S

and this cover reveals two volumes buttons like the Mini and Max, while the power button is on the top right a little further to the center

Finally the weirdest and final leak, so much is not shown in these photos, but we can notice the two flash and camera holes are machined with the diamond reflective edges increased over the M7 especially since the NFC white ring is gone, the flashes are included in a single hole with different colors ala iPhone 5s (remember the cross license between Apple and HTC), finally the front shows more rounded corners, the same speakers setups as we saw in the 3d print and finally it confirms the metal speaker covers are still there, however the front camera hole doesn't seem to be machined, we can notice a white frame surrounding the entire front similar to the Max / Mini and for some reason the speaker grills are blurred by the leaker but we saw them more rounded in the sides from the 3d print which leads me to assume they might be similar to the thinner new speaker covers on the Desire 700

here is how the covers looks on the M7

and how it should look on the M8 once the proportions are corrected

the corners are definitely more rounded
