Verizon may have the One M8 for Windows for its very own, but Sprint has managed to lay its paws on something that’s equally great – the HTC One E8 or the model we all know as the cheaper version of the Android flagship dressed in a polycarbonate form factor. The device which was expected to be flying to Asian countries only until now, has officially reached the carrier and is already on sale.
You can now purchase it through Sprint’s telesales channel or at its website where the HTC One E8 is tagged at $0 down with monthly payments of $20.84 for 2 years. This is of course with the Easy Pay plan, while a 2-year contract will cost you $99.99 for the handset and you probably know the rest.
The smartphone is as mentioned above, a plastic version of the M8 flagship. It flaunts a dual-curve unibody design with tapered edge. In fact, it looks more like last year’s model, but features the same high-end specifications. There’s a 5-inch 1080p display on the front with a 5MP snapper and dual BoomSound speakers.
Sadly, the Duo Camera setup has been excluded and replaced by a single 13MP sensor. The Asian model has dual SIM slots, but this one has been altered to carry just one. Additionally, the phone is lighter than the original weighing 5.8 ounces.
Here’s an overview of the HTC One E8 handset’s specifications:
– OS: Android 4.4 KitKat
– Display: 5-inch 1080p LCD
– Processor: 2.5GHz quad core Snapdragon 801
– RAM: 2GB
– Storage: 16GB internal, 128GB expandable
