Though we were quite smitten by leaked photos of HTC's upcoming mid-range Desire 8, it's always prudent to hold out for something that's actually official. Now HTC has all but confirmed the phone's existence on its Weibo page with the same image, but a different announcement date of February 24th in Beijing. So far the rumor mill has pegged it as a 5.5-inch handset with on-screen buttons and 13-megapixel rear/5-megapixel front cameras, which seems to jibe with a "super-super" camera tease (after the break). There's no pricing or arrival date outside of China, but at this point, each new product seems critical for the beleaguered company.
