Taiwanese mobile phone maker HTC has just taken the lid off its new HTC One (M8), as the 2014 flagship mobile phone – with a similar design to the original HTC One, from 2013.
It comes with a larger 5-inch full high definition 1,920 x 1,080 screen, than the 4.7-inch display of last year’s model.
Powering it is a quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, which matches the CPU models found in the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2.
On the rear is a new introduction to the series, Duo Camera. This allows for more depth to pictures, along with offering the ability to refocus the shot, after it is captured.
The front sports a 5MP snapper, capable of 1080p video recording, as is the rear.
There is also the HTC BoomSound, dual, stereo speakers, at the top and bottom of the screen.
2GB of RAM is onboard, along with 16GB of internal storage, where the capacity can be expanded.
That is thanks to the inclusion of the microSD card slot, with support for 128GB cards.
Android KitKat runs the mobile, with the new HTC Sense 6.0 overlay. That has seen some enhancements around BlinkFeed, and colour customisations to its sections.
Sense 6.0 will be rolling out to the HTC One, One mini and HTC One Max.
HTC One (M8) will be available Amber Gold, Glacial Silver and Gunmetal Gray – from today, onwards.
