The HTC M8 Ace will likely be a phablet-sized version of the One (M8).
Serial leakster @evleaks revealed a new HTC handset that will be called the HTC M8 Ace. An earlier tweet from @evleaks suggested that the M8 Ace would be a phablet-sized version of the M8. Other than the blurry render and the red color scheme, there is no information as to when this handset will launch and what hardware it will feature.

HTC is said to be focusing on additional devices this year as the manufacturer looks to turn things around from a dismal 2013. There will be renewed focus on entry-level and mid-range devices, but it is likely that HTC will also launch versions based off the One (M8), similar to what it has done with last year’s HTC One. However, the One Max was fairly lacklustre as far as hardware is concerned and lost out to the Galaxy Note 3, so it should be interesting to see the direction HTC takes with the HTC M8 Ace.
