HTC has launched One (E8), a new variant of its previous model One (M8).
Thanks to the new dual curve design, the new One (E8) fits naturally in the user’s hand in virtually any position, the company claims. A dual-SIM version is also available.
HTC One (E8) is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset and 2GB RAM. It comes with 16GB internal storage and a microSD card slot that supports memory cards of up to 128GB. It sports a 5-inch Full-HD, borderless display and dual stereo BoomSound speakers.
The smartphone runs Android 4.4 KitKat with Sense 6 UI running on top. It supports ‘Motion Launch’ gestures that were part of HTC One (M8).

One (E8) sports a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing camera for enhanced selfies. Both of the cameras can capture Full-HD video. It comes with a 2600mAh battery.
“The HTC One (M8) sets a new smartphone standard and now we’re taking it in another exciting direction,” said HTC’s CEO Peter Chou. “Combining style and substance, the HTC One (E8) represents the incredible experience people expect from an HTC One device with a look and feel that’s unlike anything else out there today.”
The One (E8) comes in four colors: Polar White, Electric Crimson, Maldives Blue, and Misty Grey. The phone will be launched in several markets including China, later this month.
Recently HTC also launched One Mini 2, a compact version of One (M8).
