    Previously we reported a rumor on a device called the HTC One M8 Advance, which was supposedly going to be a cheaper plastic shelled version of the HTC One M8. It turns out the rumor was partially accurate. A less expensive plastic version of the HTC One has been officially outed, but it has a slightly different name. Instead of the HTC One M8 Advance, it is called the HTC One E8. It is first hitting the China markets for a price of 2,799 yuan (about $447 or €328).

    Functionally, it is nearly identical to the HTC One M8, although there are some differences. The big change is the camera, and of course the plastic body instead of the metal one on the M8. Here's a breakdown,
    • 5-inch 1080p Full HD touchscreen
    • 13 MP rear camera with single LED flash and 1080p Full HD video recording - (this obviously differs from the UltraPixel camera with Duo Camera and dual-tone dual-LED flash on the M8)
    • 5 MP front camera
    • 2.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 (which is clocked slightly higher than the 2.3GHz in other regions for some reason)
    • 2 GB of RAM
    • 16 GB of internal storage (around 10.6 GB of which is user-accessible)
    • A microSD card support
    • 4G LTE
    • Dual-SIM (some models)
    • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC
    • 2,600 mAh battery
    • Android 4.4 KitKat with HTC’s Sense 6 UI
    • Dimensions are 146.42×70.67×9.85 mm
    • Weighs 145 grams
    There's no word on whether or not this device will be hitting any other markets besides China. Of course, with this price, it is quite a bit less expensive than the Galaxy S5 or the new LG G3, so it could be a strong competitor even if it is only released in China.

    I'd give up the metal body for the camera...

    This is what the device should have been from the get go, also should have had removable battery, it's not like the M8 is selling like hot cakes, and this polycarbonate version is lighter, more durable and cheaper to produce, which in the end means more profits for HTC, and that is what they need, as they have been bleeding money for years now, too many bad decisions, and in the end it will be the downfall of HTC, just like it was for Motorola Mobility "Google tried but could not save them", so they where sold to Lenovo, I can see the same for HTC.

    HTC needs the business. I would think this variant will be available worldwide.
