After months of rumours and leaked photos, HTC has finally made its new flagship -- the One M8 -- official. This 5-inch beast sports an updated metal design, a quad-core 2.3GHz processor, Android 4.4.2 KitKat and a host of cool camera tricks.
The phone is due to go on sale globally this week, although specific pricing hasn't yet been discussed.
Physically, it's not difficult to spot the family resemblance to its predecessor. The One M8 has a 5-inch display, making it marginally bigger than the 4.7-inches of its predecessor. Both displays have full HD resolutions.
Not quite. The lower lens is the main camera. It has the same 4-Ultrapixel resolution as before -- HTC claims its pixels are physically larger, allowing them to take in more light and therefore produce better quality shots. Apparently the software has been tweaked too to increase clarity.
HTC's Zoe mode is on board still. It takes multiple pictures in a burst mode, letting you remove moving objects -- like a stranger walking through your shot -- or edit them together into an action sequence.
