The successor of the HTC One M8 features a re-contoured body shape and a trio of new two-tone color schemes, including a striking silver variant with gold edging. It also has a scratch-resistant coating to the metal shell.
In terms of what’s inside, HTC has improved the BoomSound speakers with the Dolby Audio enhancement as well as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor, and a 20-megapixel rear-facing camera.
The HTC One M8 is actually known as the second generation of HTC One or sometimes as the all-new HTC One.
It was officially unveiled in a press conference on March 25, 2014, simultaneously held in both New York and Londo but not before tons of leaks has already made the rounds on the internet. The HTC One M8 was released on the very same day by Verizon Wireless at retail, and also by other Canadian and American carriers for online orders prior to its wider retail availability in mid-April.
The HTC One M8 features a rounded chassis and has a 5-inch 1080-pixel display. It is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, a depth of field sensor which can be used to individually refocus and apply various effects to the foreground and background elements of photos taken from the smartphone’s higher-resolution front-facing camera.
