A second leaked image of what appears to be HTC's latest flagship Android phone has again been published on Twitter account @evleaks.

The latest leaked press image is almost identical to the one that was published last week, but shows a black device instead of a white and silver one.

The evleaks Twitter account, which has a solid track record when it comes to publishing correct rumours, suggests the picture could be a US press image as it displays New York as the city on the home screen. The image of the white and silver HTC device leaked last week displayed London as the city.

The as-yet-unreleased device is being referred to as the HTC One but was previously rumoured to be codenamed 'M7'. It appears to be a large phone with a strange button layout — a back button on the left and a home button on the right are flanked by a rather large HTC logo. The absence of a multitasking button, a traditional feature of HTC Android phones, is striking.

HTC is expected to unveil the rumoured phone this week, after it sent invitations to Australian technology media to attend an "exclusive HTC product launch" scheduled for Thursday 21 February in Sydney.

The invitation, which was addressed to various technology media outlets in Australia, invites attendees to "explore HTC's newest and most anticipated device".

Interestingly, the Sydney product launch will see two bands playing. HTC published an infographic last week suggesting it will "kick off a new sound and camera experience in 2013." The leaked images of the HTC device suggest the phone could have dual speakers.

In addition to the Sydney media event, HTC will hold a press event in New York tomorrow. The event is scheduled a few days before the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2013 event kicks off in Barcelona, Spain.

MWC is the world's largest mobile trade show and traditionally sees most major mobile manufacturers release new smartphones.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
