While the carriers in UK like Carphone Warehouse along with a couple of carriers have announced that they will receive the stick minutes after the handset’s launch, Welectronics website is beating them all by selling the All New HTC One (HTC M8) at $999.99 (Rs. 60,400 approximately). We assume the handset is being sold at this huge price tag because of its availability before the official announcement.
The Welectronics store has also posted an unboxing video proving that they actually have the HTC M8 or HTC One 2014 in stock.
In the video, the retailer is seen opening the HTC M8’s Verizon branded box that might be region specific. The box includes the HTC handset, AC charger, Micro USB cable and a quick start-up guide.
Furthermore, the retailer gives us a glimpse of the HTC One 2014’s specifications listed on the box. The HTC M8 retail box in the video shows the inclusion of a 5-inch Full-HD screen besides Android and HTC Sense(the version of both remains undisclosed). The retail box notes the smartphone to be powered by a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC clubbed with a 2GB DDR3 RAM. The particular handset comes with 32GB of onboard storage, which can be expanded up to 128GB via microSD card. The camera front is seen sporting an Ultrapixel technology on the rear shooter and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter.
The leak is not new to HTC as a similar Verizon branded HTC M8 or HTC One 2014 was spotted online for sale earlier this month on eBay for a brief period. The HTC smartphone was listed for $499 (roughly Rs. 30,500). The retail box showed similar specifications for the handset.
