There's plenty of speculation as to what the M8 will pack, including a 5in screen, a Snapdragon 800 processor and Android 4.4 KitKat.

Leaked documents also show that the new HTC One M8 will have twin rear cameras, and these are thought to allow you to choose the focus point after the photo is taken, similar to a Lytro camera. Images, purportedly of the M8, also appear to show a flash similar to the iPhone 5S, which could aid colour accuracy in low light. Visit: New HTC One (m8) 2014 price and where to buy in UK

Software-wise, we're likely to see an update to HTC's Sense overlay, and on-screen rather than physical buttons at the bottom.
