HTC apparently has a new handset up its sleeve, tentatively, known as the HTC One M8 Ace. The company is no stranger to good looking phones. HTC's past track record says it all. Right from the first ever Android phone, the G1, to the very latest, HTC One (M8), the Taiwanese giant is well versed in designing premium handsets.
More often HTC has been tagged as a sophisticated brand, but the times have changed. Off lately, HTC has seen its market share dwindle in the face of fierce competition from Apple's iPhone and rival devices from Samsung and Sony.
In order to get the company back on track, HTC had no choice but to ape Samsung's strategy by producing a plastic made phone with all the bells and whistles of being a true mass oriented device, similar to the Galaxy S5.
Rumors are rife in the tech world that HTC may bring Samsung Galaxy S5 rival in the form of HTC One (M8) Ace. The device in question is tipped to be made out of plastic instead of metal casing, like the original HTC One (M8).
The phone, and its spec sheet have been extensively leaked over the past couple of months, and today we're looking at the HTC One (M8) Ace in full glory.
Even though HTC remained silent about the One (M8) Ace, the phone's images have been leaked by none other than Chinese authorities.

Not surprisingly, the HTC One (M8) Ace was recently approved by TENAA (equivalent to FCC). Going by the images, the phone isn't looking gorgeous at all, since it crafted out of cheap plastic. From the looks, the M8 Ace may not pack the dual-sensor UltraPixel rear camera of its flagship brother though, which may be one of the only differences between the two smartphones.
