Official app description reveals stock Android version of unannounced flagship
With many HTC Sense 6 apps now appearing on Google Play, further details of the HTC One (M8) features are starting to leak out through HTC's own app listings. Not least of which is the news of a Google Play edition M8, revealed in the description for the HTC Gallery app.
From HTC's blurb (emphasis ours) —
The HTC Gallery provides you with a range of fast and easy ways to locate your photos. With Image Match, simply choose a photo with the object or person you want to find and it will locate similar images for you. Timeline View allows you to locate images by day, month or year. And POI Location searches photos that have been taken at a particular place. Now it’s fast and easy to find all the photos you need to. Support for HTC One(M8) Google Play Edition is limited to HTC Photo Edit.
Of course that doesn't reveal anything about when the device will be available, but nevertheless this seems a pretty strong indication of the Google Play edition M8's existence. Stay tuned to Android Central later today for full coverage of HTC's launch.
