First Look of HTC One M8

Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC will be launching its new flagship smartphone, HTC One (M8) in India in April. The smartphone maker has not revealed the price of the smartphone.


HTC’s 2013 flagship, the original HTC One (M7), defined “successful” in nearly every way. But it’s been a year. Pushed along at the tech world’s harried pace, the Android market has evolved rapidly – even as HTC’s financials stumbled. The company’s situation is far from desperate, but its fortunes still depend heavily on the success or failure of this much-anticipated sequel.

HTC One M8 is powered by a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor and 2GB RAM. The phone will be available in 16GB and 32GB internal storage variants with a microSD card slot that supports cards of up to 128GB capacity. HTC will also offer 65GB of cloud storage space on Google Drive.
