HTC has announced the launch of its latest flagship smartphone, the HTC One (M8). The phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC and comes with a duo rear camera setup, in line with the rumoured specifications.
The design and the rest of the specifications of the HTC One (M8) have probably been the tech world's worst-kept secret and will not come as a surprise to anyone that's been tracking this story. HTC One (M8) comes with a 5-inch full-HD display and will be available in 16GB and 32GB storage options, with support for expandable storage via microSD cards of up to 128GB capacity.

The HTC One (M8) comes with a body that's '90 percent metal' and exudes the same premium feel as its predecessor. The phone comes with 2GB of RAM.
The highlight of the HTC One (M8) is the dual camera setup that puts a 4-UltraPixel camera alongside a depth sensing camera that lets you do cool things like refocussing images after they've been clicked and other stuff. A 5-megapixel front camera is included as well.
