A well-known leaker of information on unreleased smartphones tablets has revealed key details on the HTC One M8 ime, supposedly an even fancier version of HTC’s flagship phone.

According to prolific ( highly accurate) mobile leaker Evleaks, the HTC M8 ime will have a waterproof design with an “exotic material” made from aluminum liquid silicon. This material is reportedly a just little heavier than aluminum, but stronger, with a similar ability to stay cool.

Evleaks also revealed some possible tech specs for the device. The One M8 will reportedly be the first HTC phone with a Category 6 E Advanced radio, a 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 805 processor 3 GB of RAM. The display could measure 5.5-inches, with a resolution of 2560-by-1440.

most as interesting as the details themselves is the way Evleaks went about disclosing them. On Sunday night, HTC spokesman ff fired a shot at Evleaks over Twitter, saying that “a well-known leaker has been completely wrong about at least two of his ‘leaks.’” over the past few days. “Be careful where you get your news,” concluded.

Evleaks, who’s been poked fun of by HTC employees before, then posted the M8 details as a series of responses to .

The details from Evleaks aren’t entirely new. evious reports from China have mentioned many of the same specs—but not the details on build materials— hinted at a September launch. Still, it’s always enjoyable when new product rumors come with a side of drama.
