Last week we learned that the HTC M8 may be the first device from HTC to feature on-screen buttons. Thanks for an anonymous email, we now have an image which may show what those on-screen buttons will look like. The image above shows the standard back, home, and multi-tasking Android buttons. While the back button doesn’t match HTC’s current capacitive equivalent, the home and multi-tasking designs do. If HTC does choose to take the on-screen button approach with the HTC M8, it’ll be interesting to see how the app dock will look like in Sense 6.
As with all rumors and leaks, we encourage you to keep an open mind.
HTC M8 on-screen buttons compared to HTC capacitive buttons
As we noted a few days back, if the HTC M8 does feature on-screen button with a thinner bezel around the display, the phone could be slightly smaller than the HTC One despite the fact that the M8 is rumored to sport a 5-inch display. Do you think moving to on-screen buttons with the HTC M8 is the right decision?
