HTC to release cheaper plastic version of the one M8

According to a rumor we read earlier today HTC is supposedly ready to start selling a plastic version of the one M8.

If the rumor turn out to be true, we will be able to buy the cheaper version of the premium M8 as soon as May month.

Supposedly the cheaper version will have the same hardware as the original. The only difference between the two will be the outer casing and the price.

It is thought that the reason behind the new and cheap version is to be able to better compete with the flagship model from Samsung, the Galaxy S5.


How cheap is the plastic M8 going to be.

At 483 dollars this is a significant price drop from the 700 dollars or more price of the original. We think this would be a smart move by HTC if their true aim is to compete with Samsung.

The impressive HTC one M8 was launched on march 25th. A few key specs that it is likely to share with the plastic version.

  • Snapdragon 801.
  • 2GB of RAM.
  • 5.0 inch, 1080p display.
  • 2600 mAh battery.
  • Android Os version Kit Kat 4.4.2.
