HTC in order to be able to compete with Samsung will soon release a plastic and much cheaper version of the recently announced HTC One M8 smartphone, G4Games reports. The cheaper version is seen by HTC one as “the same phone, but of different quality” as the change to plastic makes no difference as far as design. The device will become available next month if the rumors are accurate.
The price of the device will be 3.000 YUAN (which is approximately $483) and the current HTC One M8 is available for 5299 YUAN ( approximately $853) which is a huge price difference. As of now it is also unknown if the device will have a different name or what name this will be.
HTC’s flagship smartphone launched just a few days ago and was originally revealed on March 25th 2014 and features some impressive specs:
- Snapdragon 801 quadcore CPU at 2.3GHz
- 2GB of RAM
- Dual 4MP cameras
- 5″ 1080p display
- 2600 mAh battery
- Running on Android Kit Kat 4.4.2
