Yes, the moment you’ve all been waiting for is finally here. The new HTC handset has been announced just ahead of Mobile World Congress. It is…. the…. HTC One M8 again.
This isn’t the handset expected to launch on Sunday and is instead an existing HTC One M8 which has been festooned with UEFA Champions League history on the back and an image of the trophy a bit further up.
As usual, you’ll get the 5″ screen, metal body, brushed aluminium, HTC BoomSound and the HTC UltraPixel / Duo Camera. Inside you’ll also have a HTC FootballFeed application to deliver all the latest UEFA football news and statistics.
HTC are promoting this as a “collectors edition” as it’ll only be available to competition winners via the “HTC Social Media Channels”.
If you’re interested in getting the “football free” version, have a read of our review.
Phew. I got all the way through that without mentioning the fact that we’ll be live on Sunday to cover the launch of the HTC One M9.
