T he HTC One M8 is the ultimate evolution of the award-winning HTC One (M7). Launching with the all-new HTC Sense 6, the new HTC One M8, boasts a high quality metal unibody with a Smart Sensor Hub that anticipates your needs and uses Motion Launch controls to make everyday tasks easier. Achieving another breakthrough in design and quality with the new HTC One M8, the phone’s body has been re-crafted to create an even more stunning yet approachable look. The beautiful, durable, high quality metal unibody flows right up to the 5-inch, full HD (1080p) display, tapering to thinner edges, with softer curves for a smooth, more natural grip.

HTC One M8

 

HTC One M8 Android smartphone

Supported by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor with 2.3 GHz quad-core Krait CPUs and fully integrated 4G LTE, and running Android 4.4, KitKat, the latest version of the Android OS, the new HTC One M8 features the all-new HTC Sense 6, available on the device and as an upgrade from the Google Play store. Completely redesigned with a cleaner, more striking visual style, HTC Sense 6 features bold, customisable colour themes and delivers a more intuitive, personalised user experience. For those who prefer the stock Android experience, the HTC One M8 Google Play edition is available for purchase on the Google Play store.

Take photos and videos with the HTC One

The new HTC One M8 brings a totally different dimension to mobile imaging by combining the world's first smartphone with a Duo Camera that features HTC's innovative HTC UltraPixel module, a dual flash and full 1080p HD video recording, producing incredible images in all lighting conditions and rich, high-quality video. A 5MP wide-angle front facing camera also captures superior selfies with ease. With so much scope to create exciting imagery, Gallery organisation has also been a priority for the designers of HTC Sense, who have introduced Image match, a visual search tool that intuitively moves all the photos containing a particular subject into one album.

 

HTC Sense 6 with Motion Launch

With the introduction of HTC Sense 6, the new HTC One M8 boasts capabilities that give the product a sixth sense. For example, Motion Launch is immediately able to detect its position and movement, thanks to built-in motion sensors that allow you to interact with the phone without turning on the screen. A simple swipe will activate the device, Auto Answer allows you to answer a call by putting the phone to your ear without touching the screen - a handy tool if the phone rings when you are digging the garden or washing the dishes - and a double tap turns the lock screen on and off.

Extreme Power Saving Mode

The innovation doesn't end there, as we are also changing how people use their phone battery. With the original HTC One (M7), HTC optimised power consumption so that you could get the most out of your phone. The new HTC One M8 takes this to a whole new level making the battery power last 40% longer. Whilst normal power saving mode delivers a great experience, we have also included an Extreme power saving mode that makes your battery last even longer. Fully charged it will deliver 14 days' worth of battery power, whilst still allowing you to receive calls, texts and emails - perfect for when you are travelling. Activated either manually or automatically, it delivers 60 hours of extra standby time at 20% power, 30 hours at 10% power and 15 hours at 5% power so, whether you are out late at night or hiking in the mountains, you never have to worry about running out of battery again.

HTC BoomSound on the One M8

The new HTC One M8 again takes the smartphone audio experience to new heights. The latest HTC BoomSound technology creates an immersive, powerful, crystal-clear sound with rich tones from bass through to treble. Delivering sound that is 25% louder than the HTC One M7, without compromising quality, the new HTC One M8 has dual frontal stereo speakers with a new amplifier, redesigned speaker chambers and a tailored audio profile for a truly high definition experience.

 

HTC One M8 offers a preloaded fitness app

With the new HTC One M8, you can get healthier and stay motivated by combining its power-saving sensor hub with the preloaded Fitbit app. Alternatively, use the phone in conjunction with one of Fitbit's range of trackers to access advanced features such as sleep tracking and smart alarm or to capture data when exercising without your phone. Set your fitness goals and see your achievements brought straight to your HTC BlinkFeed home screen with no additional effort. Fitbit is the top downloaded app for connected fitness devices on the Google Play store.
