During a press conference today in New York, HTC took the wraps off its powerful One M8 smartphone which is equipped with a quad-core processor, two rear-facing cameras, and an updated Sense 6.0 user interface.

Like its predecessor , the handset will come to all four major US carriers: AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, and T-Mobile. Carrier customers (except those belonging to T-Mobile) can place orders for it beginning today at 10am PT (1pm ET).

Verizon customers can walk into a physical store today and walk out with the M8 in hand (at least until April 9; afterwards, other carriers will have it in their stores). Unlocked and developer editions will sell for $649.99 through HTC, and the Google Play Edition will retail for $699 (32GB). In addition, Best Buy will exclusively stock the amber gold color variant of the phone.

Prepaid carrier T-Mobile said its consumers can purchase the phone online and in retail stores starting April 11 for $0 down and for 24 monthly payments of $26.50, which totals to $636 altogether.

Globally, the One M8 will be available in 230 carriers around the world in over 100 countries. Besides the US, it will launch by the end of April in Australia, Taiwan, the UK, Germany, France, and China.
