HTC One M8 launched

After months of waiting and rumours, HTC has finally unveiled the beautiful new HTC One (M8), the upgrade to the award winning HTC One.

The new phone has taken the stunning design of last year’s One and made it even better. It’s now even more metallic with a sleek brushed aluminium finish. Plus the corners have been rounded and the edges thinned, making the HTC One (M8) feel really nice in your hand.

On the back is HTC’s revolutionary Duo Camera. If you like to play around with photo editing, then this should make you really happy. As it has two cameras the HTC One (M8) has depth perception like we do, which means you can change what’s in focus after you’ve taken the photo as well as add cool 3D-like effects.

The front of the phone has some new technology too. The sharp and colourful 5” Full HD screen looks perfect and it’s framed by HTC’s iconic BoomSound stereo speakers, which are 25% louder than last year’s and still crystal clear.

The HTC One (M8) has been fully upgraded inside too. So now there’s even more speed to enjoy your favourite games and HD movies and enough power from the new battery to keep the fun going all day. The processor is now around 35 per cent faster and the battery is a little bigger and should easily last more than a day.

There’s even new software to help things run smoothly and make the HTC One (M8) a little easier to use. The new HTC Sense 6.0 has Motion Launch, which lets you jump into your most recent app, the dialler or BlinkFeed with just a swipe when the screen’s off. And with Android 4.4 KitKat, everything is extremely efficient, so your battery lasts longer and the phone runs faster.
