The HTC One M8 has just been announced here in London and at New York in a twin event.
Available from £38 a month and £49 upfront, the HTC One M8 is a premium phone in both design and features with twin cameras on the back, a 5 megapixel front facing camera which is great for selfie photos. It also has a MicroSD card slot for external storage if you want.
We have our very own M8 right now and will be putting this to the test, until then here is the professional, Brendan from Three to talk you through what to expect
The all new, powerful and stylish HTC One (M8) is now available on Three.
The hotly anticipated new flagship device from HTC, the HTC One (M8), is now available from Three in-store or online.
The successor to the highly acclaimed HTC One, the HTC One (M8) has a larger screen, greater processing power and longer battery life, all incorporated into one of the most beautifully designed, high-performance smartphones yet.
Made from a single curved block of stainless steel it has a premium and quality finish that is set to appeal to even the most style conscious. Combined with its capabilities and features, this attractive looking device is one of the most desirable phones available today.
The HTC One (M8) will be available for an upfront cost of £49 and a choice of four different 24 month price plans. These start at £38 a month for 600 minutes and 2GB of data, up to £44 a month for all-you-can-eat data and all-you-can-eat minutes.
HTC’s new innovative Duo Camera has various professional photography effects to enhance your images. Duo Camera enables you to take a photo and then choose where to focus, soften backgrounds or add seasonal effects, even after taking the shot. Plus it has a 5MP front facing camera that even has a countdown feature to make the most of the new selfie mode, so you can make sure you can always capture yourself in the best pose possible.
Another key feature, HTC Zoe, allows you to easily make mini-movies that combine pictures and videos selected from your gallery and then you can add a theme and a soundtrack. The mini-movies are simple to create and fun to capture silly stuff and memories alike. These can then be easily shared and now your friends can add to them with their content too.
Sylvia Chind, head of devices at Three, said: “We are excited to be ranging the latest flagship smartphone from HTC. It’s a really impressive, premium and beautifully crafted device that is perfect for those seeking one of the best handsets on the market today. Combined with our all-you-can-eat data you can make the most of all its features without worrying about bill shock.”
Amongst various other clever features is Blinkfeed™ that displays all the content from your newsfeeds and social media pages so you can easily glimpse at the information that matters to you most. There is also HTC Sense TV, which allows you to use your phone as a remote control for the TV, and HTC Match that transfers data and apps from your old smartphone even if it wasn’t previously on the Android operating system.
The smartphone is also available to buy with the additional HTC Dot View™ retro case that enables you to view or respond to a host of at a glance features such as the weather or who is calling, without even having to open it up.
