HTC will offer a live stream of its upcoming event where it will unveil its next-gen flagship device known as the HTC One 2 or M8.
The company currently has a countdown for the event posted up on its web page to build up anticipation for the handset. Once the countdown is finished, HTC will transform it into the actual live stream. Find it here.
The All New HTC one is expected to begin shipping in April.
Spigen, an accessory manufacturer and retailer recently posted up screen protectors and cases that will be available for the All New HTC One starting in the middle of next month. This could point to the device shipping around that time.
The site will be offering four different versions of screen protectors for the handset. They will be priced anywhere from $9.99 for a package of three, to $39.99. Spigen is currently offering pre-orders for them.
The device's price leaked on eBay last week.
A Verizon branded 32GB version of the HTC One 2014 model was sold on the site for $499.99. The post showed the new box and it also confirmed the phone's specifications.
The box label does not feature the "All New" name anymore that was originally announced. Instead, it seems like the company will brand the next-gen device as the HTC One 2014.
The specs leaked on the box include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 CPU, nanoSIM, 2GB RAM, a 5-inch 1080p Full HD display, HTC BoomSound and a 4-Ultrapixel camera.
Anticipation for the upcoming HTC One 2 is being stirred up by all of these recent leaks, according to HTC Americas President Jason Mackenzie.
He appeared on CNBC's "Fast Money" earlier this month to discuss the HTC One's status as phone of the year for 2013 and the company's future plans.
The interviewer brought up the frequent number of leaks regarding the HTC One 2 and Mackenzie followed it up by stating that he wouldn't comment except for acknowledging the leaks as a clear indicator that people are really interested in the next-gen model.
