In a recent development, HTC has officially announced the dual-SIM variant of its latest flagship - HTC One (M8) Dual SIM. As expected, the Dual SIM variant of the HTC One M8 will come to select markets including Austria, Germany and Switzerland by as soon as next week.
Reportedly, HTC will announce availability in other markets including India in the coming weeks. The move was already anticipated as HTC has a track record of releasing the Dual SIM variant of its flagship handsets. We have seen the original HTC One's dual SIM version before this, so the news don't come with a surprising element in it.
The information comes from a official press release issued in Germany. According to the company, the HTC One M8 Dual SIM will be available at a suggested retail price of €799 (approx. Rs. 64,941). This one is pretty expensive compared to the original HTC One M8 which is currently retailing in India at the price of Rs. 48,600.
Moreover, HTC One M8 Dual SIM will be available in only one color version i.e. gunmetal grey.
