HTC One (M8) Launched In India For Rs 49,990
In the month of March, HTC had showcased its new flagship smartphone - HTC One (M8). Now this smartphone is available in India for Rs. 49,990 (Market Operating Price) from May 7, 2014.
HTC has joined in on the ever-creeping size of Android phones, with a new five-inch 1080p screen, a slight jump from last year's 4.7-inch device. The last year's HTC One had won many hearts with its design and this one too manages to do the same.
The HTC One (M8) has an impressively sleek metal unibody backing, with an edge-to-edge screen. It is available in three colors: Metal Grey, Gold, and Silver.
The most notable feature of the HTC One (M8) is its camera. The device packs in what the company dubs as the HTC Duo camera.
