The smartphone came with a design similar to its predecessor and numerous improvements, with one of the most visible being new dual-lens “Duo Camera.”
The camera has two sensors on the back of the unit that help to capture bright pictures even in very dark environments but also to edit photographs.
The new HTC retains the aluminum unibody construction of the previous HTC One and offers three different colors: gun-metal gray, amber gold and glacial silver.
The handset features a 5-inch 1080 display with a Gorilla Glass 3 sheet protection.
The device is barely heavier than the previous model one (160 g with 146.36 x 70.6 x 9.35mm dimensions), but its handling remains excellent and pleasant with a brushed finish.
Two speakers are placed on the front to deliver stereo sound when watching a video, for example.
The HTC One M8 comes with a capacity of 16GB or 32GB and a microSD slot for up to 128GB, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 2.3GHz quad core processor, 2GB of RAM, LTE support, Bluetooth 3.0, 802.11ac Wi-Fi and an IR blaster.
The 2600 mAh capacity battery, which is expected to provide 40% more runtime than the previous model, can support up to 20 hours of 3G talk time, or up to 496 hours of standby on a 3G network connection.
Android KitKat associated with the Sense 6 UI brings new functions including ‘Motion Launch’ gesture with which the user doesn’t even need to touch the screen.
