Chinese site MyDrivers recently leaked a photo and some specs for a new HTC handset called the Desire 8 – and now the Taiwanese smartphone maker has all but confirmed its industrial design.
On its Weibo account, HTC has published a teaser image for what rumors have described as a new, mid-range Android handset with a 5.5-inch display, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5.5-megapixel counterpart fitted on the front. While those specs are still unconfirmed, the digital poster does feature the same handset photo originally leaked by MyDrivers.

The Desire 8 also has front-facing grills – six holes for each – both on the top and bottom of the device, making a ‘BoomSound’ dual-speaker set up a distinct possibility.
