The new and updated version of the HTC One, known to us Mobile Geeks of course as the HTC One (M8), was launched in New York and London last night to great fanfare by the company’s CEO Peter Chou. Thankfully our man Roland was on hand in London and managed to get his Geekly paws on the full retail box to show us exactly what end-users will enjoy when the device hits stores next week.
HTC have almost taken a march on their competitors, as the new The HTC One will be available from April 4th throughout Europe, initially its ‘Gunmetal Gray’ iteration with ‘Glacial Silver,’ and ‘Amber Gold,’ to follow, with a US release promised for April 11th, around the same time that the Samsung Galaxy S5 is expected to arrive. As you can see in the video below, the ‘Gunmetal Gray’ version looks fantastic, as does the entire package. I personally cannot wait to get some genuine hands on time with this device.
