Giving rest to the rumors, the company has now finally revealed all the specs and features. HTC had impressed everyone with the all-new elegant design of HTC One and is carrying it forward with the new flagship. HTC One M8 carries the same amazing design of the older HTC One with the front-facing Boom Sound stereo speakers, which are said to be 25% louder than the older. The One (M8) sports a 5” screen with a resolution of 1920*1080 and a pixel density of 441 ppi.

There are two storage options - 16GB and 32GB, both of which are expandable up to 128GB via microSD card slot. The device will be running on the latest android version KitKat with HTC’s Sense 6 UI on top of it. Many gestures are added to the phone so as to handle it without unlocking it with the hardware key. Such as, in landscape mode, pressing volume button launches camera or double taping the screen unlocks the phone. Also, while the phone is locked, swiping left on screen launches the widget panel and swiping right launches BlinkFeed.


The rear camera of the HTC One (M8) is the same 4MP camera seen in older HTC One with 1/3” sensor, 2 micron sized pixels, f/2.0 aperture and fast focus(0.3s).

The front camera is 5MP with wide angles and is an improvement over previous 2.1MP. The One (M8) has digital stabilization unlike optical stabilization in the previous One. A dual toned LED flash – one cold and one warm is provided with the rear camera which helps produce more accurate colour tones in low light conditions. In Zoe mode, the camera can take 20 full resolution images coupled with video in only 3 seconds.
