HTC One E8

We often forget about how big the smartphone market in China is. Here's a little reminder courtesy of HTC's own Jeff Gordon.

50,000 of anything in 15 minutes is pretty damn amazing.

Glad to see HTC starting to do a little better on sales of late - by far my favorite cell phone manufactorer

Yeah.

I hope this phone comes to the USA.

They should bring that phone to the States.. If the price is good ppl will buy it. Let's face it, the M8 will not make them #1 no matter how great it is.

Even in plastic it's teh sexy. Still happy with my Droid Mini though, but it could probably sell in the States.

If they send it to the US and stick it at a lower price point, they'll have a real winner!

OnePlus could have accomplished the same thing...IF they had 50,000 phones to sell.

You mean if they were not a shady scummy company that should have stick to Blu Ray players?

How are they shady and scummy? Did they rip you off? Call your teddy bear a bad name?:(

Well on their way to 144,000,000 this month. I would laugh a lot if they kill the M8 sales with a plastic phone. Will go a long way to listening to nerds about phone specs/wants.

Same specs as the M8 except single 13 Megapixel instead of duo UltraPixel on back. Polycarbonate instead metal with HTC's great build and design and $200 less expensive than M8 and S5.

DroidOn says:

If it has a removable battery and storage, I would probably prefer this phone to my HTC One M7.

It does have SD card support - but only has 16gb of on board storage. That is still pretty good. This phone is a spec beast with the Snapdragon 801, 13 mp rear camera, 5 mp front camera, 2 gb RAM, etc.

48,000 were to Foxconn workers

Dizfunctions says:

Foxconn also makes chips for other phones, so I'm not sure what you're trying to get at...

Was that an attempted joke or..?

Posted from my TARDIS!

I absolutely love my m8 but even in Polycarbonate, it still looks Gorgeous. - D

deuceja says:

Why not the M8 Prime I was suppose to get that phone... not depend on Samsung Galaxy Note 3

That's brilliant!

If this goes on, things might hopefully turn things around for HTC.

jrb363 says:

Wow, that's great for HTC! Hopefully this can help them get back to profitability.

rampage1979 says:

The main thing about this phone is the price, similar specs to the s5 and m8 but $200 cheaper.
