Buyer seemingly nabs 32GB M8 for $499.99, specs on box confirm earlier rumors
Just a day after a purported set of new HTC One (M8) specs emerged online, we have further evidence of the phone's high-end internals, along with a cheeky look at its retail packaging. The device pictured above — apparently a 32GB Verizon version of the still unreleased, unannounced new HTC One — went up for sale on eBay today, where it was snapped up for a relatively low $499.99. And while the phone itself isn't pictured, the images in the listing seem to confirm many of the hardware details coming from the rumor mill.
Here's how this apparently official spec list breaks down...

|SIM card type||nanoSIM|

That certainly fits with previous M8 leaks, in particular the Australian carrier leak and sales guide leak which appeared yesterday. So we now have a reasonably clear picture of the M8's hardware, it would appear. But for the full details — including news of pricing and availability — we'll have to wait until the launch events on March 25.
