The chipset employed is 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 801 processor paired with 2 GB RAM and 16 GB/ 32 GB storage options. MicroSD support is also present for up to 128 GB expansion. HTC will also offer 65 GB of Google drive storage bundled with the camera is the same 4 MP ultrapixel camera, powered by refreshed algorithms which does make it better. The pixel size for 1/3” sensor is quite large at 2 micrometer. We still love the HTC One 2013 camera and this one is notch higher in every aspect. The only thing that we would miss is the OIS, that has been taken away from the M8.

The camera on the HTC One M8 can record videos at 1080p at 30 fps and 720p videos at 60fps. The front 5 MP selfie camera can also shoot 1080p full HD video.

HTC One M8 also incorporates some fitness features similar to all other flagships from tier 1 manufacturers. The phone is integrated with fitbit app for fitness tracking and comes with built in always on power saving activity tracking sensor. Your scores will be displayed in a blink feed widget and you can also compete with friends.

The 2600 mAh battery will offer 14 hours of talk time and 271 hours of standby time. Connectivity features include 4G LTE, WiFi ac, USB OTG and NFC. HTC One M8 Google play edition will also be available soon, but since HTC Sense UI adds to the USP of the device, its going to be a tough call to make.
