HTC One (M8) in Singapore

HTC One (M8), the new edition of one of the most successful Android smartphones of last year, is official. HTC One (M8) will be released in Singapore in April 2014. Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 2.3GHz quad-core processor (the model for Asia is clocked at 2.5GHz), new HTC One's price is not known yet but expected to be in 800 - 1000 Dollars range. Sintel, StarHub and M1 HTC One contract rates will be announced closed to the launch date in Singapore.

HTC One M8 has several improvements compared to HTC One M7 such as bigger screen, better software and a better camera and imaging experience. HTC One M8 weights 160 grams and comes in Gunmetal Gray, Glacial Silver and Amber Gold colors. Amber Gold color will not be available in Singapore during launch in April.

HTC One has two lenses in the rear (a primary camera and a secondary camera). Second lense collects depth information and HTC One M8 is equipped with a software which allows users to pick different points of focus in the final photo taken. The depth data captured by second camera also makes it possible to give images 3D look.

HTC One, which was announced almost a year ago, was the best selling phone ever for Taiwanese handset maker HTC.

We will be looking forward to be spoilt for choices in Android phones domain. Sony Xperia Z2 will be released in the first week of April 2014 in Singapore with the price tag of S$998 without 2-year operator contract. And Samsung Galaxy S5 will be also launched in Singapore around that time. Samsung Galaxy S5 price in Singapore is not revealed yet.
