Twin cameras touted on back of new HTC flagship
The HTC M8 may have two camera sensors on the back, if a new photograph of the device is genuine. An image of what appears to be a complete back of an assembled smartphone shows a possible pair of camera sensors in positions revealed in an earlier rumor, rather than a fingerprint sensor, along with a dual-LED flash to the side of the main camera lens.
Aside from suggesting the potential for Lytro-style post-photograph refocusing the two camera sensors could offer, the image leaked from the @HTCFamilu_RU Twitter account also shows HTC is not straying far from the design of the original HTC One. The same account is also claimed by The Verge to show an outline of the front of the device, with the same software buttons in another rumor being shown instead of the normal capacitive or physical buttons.

Earlier rumors claim the HTC M8 will have a five-inch 1080p-or-greater display, housing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM. It is unclear if HTC will use Mobile World Congress to launch the device, or if it will opt for a later, self-contained event.
