HTC has finally announced the price of its flagship phone HTC One M8. The new HTC One will cost you 49,900 INR, which is in line with the expectations. The phone flaunts the top notch high end hardware coupled with innovative software and duo cam, which gives it a very high desirability score. HTC One M8 will be available on the shelves in the first week of May, 2014.
The HTC One M8 features a slightly bigger 5 inch SLCD display with 1080p resolution. The HTC One was one of the brightest ppi busting display of its time and the HTC One M8 unfurls the same magnificence to a large 5 inch panel.
The chipset employed is 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 801 processor paired with 2 GB RAM and 16 GB/ 32 GB storage options. MicroSD support is also present for up to 128 GB expansion. HTC will also offer 65 GB of Google drive storage bundled with the device.
The camera is the same 4 MP ultrapixel camera, powered by refreshed algorithms which does make it better. The pixel size for 1/3” sensor is quite large at 2 micrometer. We weren’t blown away with HTC One 2013 camera but it was definitely an improvement
The second camera present at the back is a depth sensor which enables you to click images and Re-focus them later. The camera can record 1080p videos at 30 fps and 720p videos at 60fps. The front 5 MP selfie camera can also shoot 1080p full HD video.
HTC One M8 also incorporates some fitness features similar to all other flagships from tier 1 manufacturers. The phone is integrated with fitbit app for fitness tracking and comes with built in always on power saving activity tracking sensor. Your scores will be displayed in a blink feed widget and you can also compete with friends.
The 2600 mAh battery will offer 14 hours of talk time and 271 hours of standby time. Connectivity features include 3G, WiFi ac, USB OTG and NFC. HTC One M8 Google play edition will also be available soon, but since HTC Sense UI adds to the USP of the device, we don’t see many takers for it.
