Ever since Taiwan-based HTC launched the One (M8), the company has been making constant efforts to stir up the high-end smartphone market.
Not surprisingly, HTC continues to divert media attention from the Samsung Galaxy S5 by using their unique tactics, which is fair in this fierce battle to win market share.
It's been only less than two months ever since HTC introduced the HTC One (M8), and now the company is readying yet another high-end handset. Yes, you heard it right!
Not long ago, a leaked picture from earlier this month was enough to speculate that HTC would reveal an affordable version of the HTC One (M8) sometime in May, dubbed the HTC M8 Ace. Multiple reports in the past had suggested that the HTC M8 Ace could be a replica of the HTC One M8, but it might not be crafted out of aluminum chassis.
Now more alleged details around the HTC M8 Ace have made it to the web. According to a new leak from Engadget, the HTC M8 Ace is indeed coming, and will be directly used to crush the ever growing stature of the Samsung Galaxy S5.
The HTC M8 Ace will reportedly feature plastic design, and is said to cost CN¥3,000 (about Rs. 29,000). That being said, it is tipped to arrive with a 5.0-inch Full HD display and a 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor under the hood. For the time being, other incremental details (Camera, RAM and internal memory) about the device have not come in open.
Going the leaked info, the HTC M8 Ace will be a monster phone with specs at par with the Samsung Galaxy S5. HTC's decision to launch a plastic version of the One (M8) could be a game changer decision and it may help the company in long run. HTC is reportedly planning to launch three more handsets by June 2014. The makers behind the HTC Butterfly have yet to reveal whether the device in question (referring to the HTC M8 Ace) will be made by June or not. Watch this space for more action!
