HTC just introduced the HTC One (M8), the company’s brand new flagship smartphone and the successor to the original HTC One M7 that launched last year. The device has a larger screen, a faster processor, optional microSD storage, Sense 6, a Duo Camera setup, improved front-facing BoomSound speakers and more.
It also carries a similar all-aluminum unibody design, though HTC removed the plastic strip running down the sides of the original HTC One, creating an even more unified design where the aluminum creeps right up to the sides of the display. The phone is also larger, and beefier, thanks to the improved internals – though the heft makes it feel even more premium than last year’s model – no easy task.
As for the internals, well we’ll let the specs speak for themselves. You can see how the two phones stack up side-by-side here. We’ll have plenty of additional coverage, so keep it locked to TechnoBuffalo for more.
