    The master tipster himself @evleaks has shared something cool regarding the M8. Supposedly, the above pic is the home screen of the upcoming HTC M8. If it is real, it gives us the first glimpse of the newest version of Sense, complete with KitKat style translucent bars. It also happens to confirm on screen buttons, instead of HTC's usual capacitive keys. This seems to confirm earlier rumors indicating HTC was planning on moving in that direction.

    Overall, it's a pretty slick looking screen front. Let us know what you think.

    The HTC One has 2 buttons (with a hack for the htc logo to make 3)
    This M8 has 3 buttons, all of which are standard.

    I would have to say this is good, as it's more in line with the new Android standard way of doing things. Back to the left, open apps to the right, and home in the middle.
