Introducing the HTC One M8, an upgrade to what many say is one of the most underrated phones on the market. Aesthetically, not much has changed from last year’s model, as it still features a metal body, but sees a slight increase in screen size to 5 inches from 4.7, while still keeping full HD resolution. The shell’s gunmetal finish is newly designed especially in-house for HTC’s new One M8. Inside, the One M8 is powered by some new technology that delivers power and convenience, all managed by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor and 2GB of RAM on Android’s 4.4 “KitKat” OS. It’s offered up with either a 16 or 32GB storage alongside a microSD card. The Duo Camera gives the One M8 two cameras on the back, allowing users to capture depth information that will make way for enhanced photo editing like a refocus effect that can blur parts of the image. BlinkFeed, HTC’s single ever-scrolling feed on the home screen, gets a massive upgrade as it’s been opened up to developers via an SDK. The manufacturer is also working with key partners like FitBit and Foursquare to enhance the content you see in BlinkFeed.
The HTC One M8 is available now one to US customers in silver, gunmetal gray or gold on Verizon, AT&T, Spring and T-Mobile. The phone should hit stores in the US by April 11th, while the UK will start getting it on March 27th. Europe, the Middle East and Africa can expect to have their go at the HTC One M8 starting April 4th.
