HTC One M8 Eye

HTC, the brand that was regarded as one of those which sells its devices at sky-high prices, has brought in some surprises this time, with the new HTC One M8 Eye smartphone being launched in India for the price of Rs. 38,990. The original M8 was launched for a price of Rs. 49900, while HTC decided to replace the 4-megapixel UltraPixel camera of the HTC One M8 with a 13-megapixel shooter in the Eye.

Nothing else is different in the One M8 Eye, except for the rear camera because this has the same 5-megapixel shooter on the front. The Desire Eye smartphone that was recently announced, has a 13-megapixel front facing camera.

The One M8 Eye has a 5-inch 1080p display on the front, and internally, it is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor (clocking at 2.5 GHz) along with Adreno 330 GPU and 2GB RAM. The device runs Android 4.4 KitKat with the HTC Sense 6 UI layered over it, and while HTC promised Android Lollipop update for the One M8 and M7, the update rollout to the One M8 Eye is almost confirmed as well.

On the camera front, the device has a 13-megapixel camera on the rear side with dual LED Flash, f/2.0, 28mm lens and there is a secondary camera as well on the rear side, to capture the depth information.

The One M8 Eye has 16GB internal storage, and users can expand the storage to 128GB using a MicroSD card. The device has a 2600 mAh battery, and a plethora of connectivity options – 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11 a/ac/b/g/n (2.4 and 5GHz), Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS with GLONASS.

HTC is making the One M8 Eye available with Gunmetal Gray and Glacial Silver color options, and the price set for it is Rs. 38,990 with a single storage variant. It will be available from Oct 18th, across both online and offline retail stores.

    13mp camera which takes good photos

    • yeah the 13 mp shooter will take some nice photos but you can definitely get a better camera on the market


    I like dis one for strong Camera n beautiful display.

    • yeah there are many options out there at the same price range and they should be looked at too. Which is your favorite flagship?

  • Shashank Chourey

    I’d still choose G3 over M8 anyday

    • Android

      Mee tooo!!

    • yeah me too the g3 has better specs and a much better ui. And htc isnt really good with cameras

  • Shashank Chourey

    Cool specs though

  • Joshua Akinsola

    grey silver are seemingly the same thing so im not sure which model is in the pic. Htc rolling out another nice 70+ rating phone with good specs. If it can bring something incredibly new to the table at and affordable price, that would be impressive

  • Android

    The 13 megapixel camera is pretty good but how does it copare to LG’s 13 megapixel camera. I am pretty sure LG’s will be better. This phone looks nice from the outside and is decent on the inside but it is not flagship qaulity. This phone should have included more new things and camera features because that is the most important feature of the whole phone. This phone also should have been cheaper so then people could actually buy it and then soon after 3 years or so they can actually get HTC’s flagship device because they know HTC is a good company
