HTC One E8 revealed as M8 with plastic casing, 13MP rear camera
HTC has <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/311056==http://www.electronista.com/articles/14/05/29/report.updates.rumored.extra.htc.one.m8.models.wit h.higher.resolution.screens/" rel='nofollow'>confirmed rumors</a> of a cheaper version of the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/311057==http://www.electronista.com/reviews/htc-one-m8.html" rel='nofollow'>HTC One M8</a>, by launching the HTC One E8. The cut-price smartphone is functionally similar to the flagship in the majority of cases, though the biggest of relatively few design changes involves the use of a polycarbonate shell instead of metal, something which reduces the weight down to 145g (5.1 ounces) from the M8's 160g (5.6 ounces). <br />
<br />
Using a 5-inch 1080p display, the E8 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, expandable by microSD. Running on Android 4.4 with Sense 6.0, it also has a 2,600mAh battery, BoomSound speakers, and a front-facing 5-megapixel camera, though the rear Duo Camera has been replaced by a more standard 13-megapixel version. Other changes include the removal of the infrared blaster and the addition of an extra SIM card slot. <br />

Initially shipping this month in China and selected markets, the HTC One E8 will be priced at 2,799 RMB ($), though there is no current word of it spreading to other markets.
