Now that HTC M8 is a reality after around three months of leaks, looks like HTC have not enjoyed the quiet week where there has been no leaks or news about new HTC devices. There were some suggestions that maybe an HTC M8 Mini or Max could be on the way, a bit like the strategy that HTC followed last year, but nothing more than passing news that just about nobody took very seriously. However, according to the trusted Twitter account @Evleaks, there maybe more to come from HTC this calendar year and its not a Mini or Max version of the popular HTC M8.

According to the tweet sent, the device would be called the HTC M8 Ace, which sounds a bit odd given that Samsung already has an Ace line of devices. Anyway, looking at the device closer from the leaked image, you see a patterned red front, and according to this report in Pocketnow, the phone is pretty much same size as that of the M8. The edges are a bit straighter on the Ace and apart from the strange box like pattern from the front, there is nothing really significant different that we can find out. So, what could it be? Here are the three wild guesses that we would make:
1) It is a dual SIM variant of the same HTC M8. We saw HTC release the dual sim version of the HTC One in countries like India and parts of South America, where the device actually became very popular. There is a strong possibility that the M8 Ace could just be a dual sim version of the same awesome M8.
2) It may be the 2K variant of the M8. It was a bit of a surprise, that neither the M8 nor the Galaxy S5 bought the 2K display which is the next curve for mobile displays on board. There are suggestions that maybe Samsung is already working on a 2K variant of the S5, and maybe that HTC is doing to same, and the device will be a bit more powerful variant than the M8 is.
3) It just is a special colored variants of M8. We have seen the Lumia line gain popularity for its bold colors. HTC tried the move with a blue and red HTC M7 last year and it kind of gained popularity too. So could it be, the Ace be just new color variant?
Whatever it is, obviously, nor we, nor anybody else has a clue. We can all just wait and watch. What do you think the HTC M8 Ace is? Do let us know by dropping a comment or catching us on our social networking profiles.
