The aluminium clad HTC One M8 is officially launched in Malaysia with the retail price of RM2,399. For now we are getting the 16GB version and it is available with a choice of Gunmetal Grey and Glacial Silver colours. The HTC One M8 is available through its authorised dealers nationwide and with Maxis as their exclusive telco partner. Despite being exclusive, U Mobile too is offering it on contract while DiGi has teased that it’s coming soon on their network.
To recap on the specs, the new HTC One M8 comes with a 5″ Full HD display which is slightly bigger than last year’s 4.7″ HTC One. In terms of pixel density, it still pushes a decent 440 ppi (pixels per inch). For Malaysia, the HTC One M8 runs on the latest Quad-Core 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor with 2GB of RAM. If the 16GB on-board storage isn’t enough, HTC has finally included a microSD slot which supports up to 128GB.
In terms of camera, the same 4MP Ultrapixel camera has been retained but they it is accompanied by a secondary camera for its extra UFocus depth-of-field feature. Powering the device is a slightly larger 2,600mAh battery and overall it weighs 160grams with a thickness of 9.35mm. If you’re planning to switch to the new One, do take note that it uses Nano-SIM which is the same SIM size used on the iPhone 5/5S and Nokia Lumia 1520. You can compare the HTC One specs versus other flagship smart phones here.
