Is the better-than-Galaxy-Note-3 HTC One Two (M8) benchmark fake?

Is the better-than-Galaxy-Note-3 HTC One Two (M8) benchmark fake?Samsung and Sony revealed their latest smartphone flagships at Mobile World Congress (MWC) last week (the Galaxy S5 and Xperia Z2 respectively), so it’s all eyes on HTC and its March 25 launch event.

Over the past few months we’ve had leaked specs and pictures, and here we’re getting a look at a purported HTC One Two (M8) benchmark. Hmm.

The picture appeared originally on Chinese social networking site Weibo, and was imported to the west by G for Games.

What we’re seeing, supposedly, is an HTC One Two benchmark result, with the phone pipping top performers like the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and even the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

We all know to take benchmarks with a pinch of salt, and that they can be faked – yadda yadda yadda.

But even putting the actual benchmark results to the side, there’s something that doesn’t sit right about the picture, particularly in terms of the HTC One Two's display. To me it looks as though it overlaps with the bezel at the top left.

Is the better-than-Galaxy-Note-3 HTC One Two (M8) benchmark fake?Indeed, I’ve zoomed in on the HTC One Two pic above, and my suspicions are apparently confirmed.

What do you think? Am I a paranoid android (pun intended), or bona fide smartphone detective in the making?

In any case, HTC One Two specs are tipped to include a 5in 1080p display, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage (with microSD), KitKat Android 4.4, and two camera sensors on the rear for enhanced zooming and depth of field effects.
