Introducing the new HTC One E8, which is a modified variant of One M8 for China, it was just made official on HTC’s web site in China. HTC One E8 very well may be its rumored HTC One M8 Ace variant. The device is a limited edition (100 units only) that HTC will giveaway to users to provide their feedback.
Unfortunately, we can’t bring you as many official details about the One E8 as we wish we could. What we can tell for sure, however, is that the HTC One E8 sports a Snapdragon 801 SoC with a quad-core 2.5GHz CPU. As a reminder, the One M8 has the slightly slower, 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 variant. Also, instead of an Ultrapixel camera, on the E8’s back resides a 13MP shooter with a single LED flash.
The front-facing one packs 5MP of resolution, in case you’re wondering. 4G LTE connectivity with China Mobile is also on board. Like the M8, the HTC One E8 boasts a pair of BoomSound front-facing speakers. Interestingly, the phone’s packaging appears to double as a 5W mood light.
Further specs and details aren’t 100% clear, but it is believed that the HTC One E8 has a plastic housing instead of a metal one. The 1080 by 1920 pixel display is said to measure 4.7-inches in diagonal.
