As the official release date of HTC M8 is getting closer, more and more info on what the device might sport in terms of hardware and features is emerging online, and some new details on the upcoming flagship device are now available.

According to info coming from Twitter user @Shen_Ye, the smartphone will be released in no less than five different color versions, including Silver, Dark Grey, Red, Blue, and Gold.

For what it’s worth, the tidbit does not come as a surprise, given the fact that HTC has already launched last year’s HTC One flagship in these color options.

However, the one thing that remains to be seen is whether the company will announce all color versions of the device at the same time, or choose to make some of them official at a later date, as it happened with HTC One last year.

Another interesting detail on the yet unannounced device is the fact that it will come to shelves with support for NanoSIM cards, as HTCSource notes.

Provided that the info pans out, the upcoming flagship will become the first handset in HTC’s lineup to be able to accommodate the latest type of SIM cards out there.

HTC M8 is also said to feature a microSD memory card slot inside, something that was rumored before as well. HTC One did not include the feature, but it appears that the handset vendor has decided to bring it to this year’s model.

For those out of the loop, we should note that HTC M8 was also rumored a few times before to arrive on shelves with a twin-camera setup on the back, and recently leaked photos with the device did appear to confirm this.

The handset was expected to sport the same 4MP UltraPixel camera as the HTC One last year, but leaked info coming from HTCFamily.ru suggests that it will be a 5-megapixel one instead.

Unfortunately, no official confirmation on any of the above has been provided as of now, and we’ll take the info with a grain of salt, but stay tuned for more on the matter.
