London, 1st March, 2015 – HTC Corporation, a global leader in mobile innovation and design, has today announced the HTC One M8s. Packed with a host of fantastic features that make it a joy to use, the HTC One M8s sports a beautiful all-metal curved body and a stunning 5” Full HD screen made from Corning® Gorilla® Glass to provide a tough, damage-resistant display.
“The HTC One M8s combines the quality ergonomics and design of the award-winning HTC One M8 with great sound and photo features to deliver an outstanding user-experience at a premium level,” said Peter Frølund, UK and Ireland Vice-President, HTC. “What really sets the HTC One M8s apart is its design and build. We created the smartphone with comfort in mind – it’s not only a pleasure to look at, but also feels great and fits perfectly into the hand.”
Next-level imaging and sound
The HTC One M8s features excellent imaging options, with a 5MP front facing camera built for brilliant selfies as well as a 13MP main camera that enables those with an eye for photography to capture shots in fine detail. Also included is HTC Eye™ Experience, which offers a host of tools to transform images and push the boundaries of the way people use their smartphone camera.
An outstanding audio experience is once again delivered through the well-known HTC Boomsound™, with two front-facing stereo speakers providing crisp sound to music lovers and movie buffs. These features are supported by a 2840 mAh battery and super-efficient Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 615 Octa-Core processor, ensuring impressive speed and long-lasting battery-life that allows plenty of time to browse, stream, listen, text and talk.
Running on the latest iteration of Android Lollipop 5.0, and HTC’s proprietary Sense 6.0 software, the HTC One M8s offers a slick and seamless experience packed with fantastic features. The popular HTC BlinkFeed™ returns, creating a live home screen where users can immediately access their favourite social content and the latest news all in one place. Adding even more to this ease of use is Motion Launch™, which intelligently provides instant access to the HTC One M8s – for example, users can answer a call simply by lifting the smartphone to their ear. Similarly, HTC Switch makes it quick and easy to move all content and information over from another Android phone or iPhone so you’re up and running in no time.
The HTC One M8s offers vast amounts of on-phone storage space for all your essential files and tracks thanks to its generous 16GB internal memory. This is boosted by a micro SD slot that allows users to add a 128GB microSD™ card, making the smartphone perfect for anyone with large collections of photos, music or videos.
The HTC One M8s will initially be available in Gunmetal Grey at mobile operators and major retailers in the UK, as well as htc.com from the beginning of April.
