Budget Range HTC One E8 officially announced
Formerly the HTC One M8 Ace

There are two major distinctions between the recently confirmed HTC One E8 and its triple A sister – it now sports a polycarbonate chassis, in place of the M8’s cool metallic body, while the Duo Camera in the rear has been replaced by a solitary 13MP offering.

How big a sacrifice these features are is entirely a case of personal preference. However, internally, stuff’s pretty similar. The E8 still packs a quad core Snapdragon 801. It still has 2GB of RAM. Those 16GB of storage are still present. Android 4.4 remains the OS while Sense 6 augments the interface. That microSD slot and 2600mAh battery make a welcome return. Finally, the E8 retains its big sister’s five inch full HD display, front facing 5MP shooter and, importantly, those dual Boomsound speakers return, intact.

The HTC One E8 is set for a “early June in select markets” release. This translates to China only. Of course, it’s only a matter of time before the E8 hits more familiar shores. And stores.
