HTC’s newly announced One E8 poses for the camera in a series of detailed images

by: Andrew GrushJune 4, 2014


Yesterday HTC took the veil off the HTC One E8, which essentially is a plastic-clad version of the One M8 with the only other major change being the inclusion of a 13MP single cam instead of the M8’s 4MP Duo camera setup.

For those interested in the E8 but still looking for a closer look than we’ve seen to date, here’s your chance. Thanks to Chinese-based iGeek, we now have a series of new photos depicting the HTC One E8 in full glory.

While the HTC One E8 might only be available in China for the moment, it is a handset that is more than worth waiting for. What makes the E8 so special? It’s still unclear exactly when HTC will rollout the device to other markets across the globe, but when it does it will likely pack a price that is significantly cheaper than the M8.

As an example, the HTC One E8 is currently priced in China for $447, versus the $847 price tag of the metal-clad M8. That’s a pretty solid price for a handset that is almost identical to the M8 and even removes the less-than-popular Ultrapixel camera.

What do you think of the HTC One E8, intrigued or does the move away from metal turn you off on the device?

    Ewwww PLASTIC! But seriously, raise your hand if you don’t give shit. Assuming it is actually cheaper, I would take this over the metal One any day.

  • i hate the glossy plastic

    • K2

      Yes. They should have gone with matte plastic for the red and white versions too like they did with the grey version. Glossy plastic looks cheap and is more slippery than matte plastic.

        i hope the black/grey looks better and not so glossy on the back

        • K2

          The grey version is said to be matte plastic and not glossy plastic.

          • Harsh M

            that would be awesome then..

  • i_say_uuhhh

    I’d get this depending on how good the camera is compared to the 13 Megapixel camera in the HTC Desire.

    • shlk7

      Its probably the same, in respects to both the software and hardware used.

  • Jimmy Baez

    It also seems as if the power button is on the top-middle compared to the top-right.

  • The Muffin Man

    I would pay somewhere in the middle of the estimated e8/m8 price-point if HTC released this device with an aluminum body

  • Joseph Flanagan

    Woth good specs and a ‘competative price’ this should be worth the glossy slippery plastic

    Like that power button was not awkward enough…

  • MohdWahidi Rosni

    Plastic or metal as long as it doesn’t gets hot in my hand, i’m good.

  • Kabal

    I just bought HTC Desire 816 for around $400. Now I am feeling cheated.

  • s2weden2000

    Too bad it won’t fly…

  • Harsh M
