A more affordable version of the HTC One M8 may be on the way, according to a leak on a Chinese website. The device is slated for a June 3 release and could well be the rumored HTC One "M8 Ace" we've been covering. We've previously looked at what its next Android smartphone would be and this cheaper HTC One M8 would bring the company in line with what competitors are offering.
The leak details some specifications as to what we can see in this upcoming product, including a Snapdragon 801 processor, 5-inch 1080p display, 2GB RAM, Android 4.4 and HTC's Sense 6.0. There are some differences with this new M8, including increased use of plastic materials over metallic due to cost savings - but HTC seemingly isn't going as far as to make the device feel cheap. Also, the device will make do with a single rear 13MP camera.
The detail with this M8 "Ace" (or "Vogue") is in the price, whichis reported to be under $500. China is said to sport this new HTC Android smartphone next week and will be available in black, blue and red variants.
