HTC India has launched the HTC One E8 in India at a launch event in New Delhi on 11 July 2014 along with the launch of HTC Desire 616 Dual SIM. The phone is a toned down version of the HTC One M8 which is the flagship which is among one of the best smartphones around in its price segment. The HTC One E8 is powered by a snapdragon 801 chipset which is clocked at 2.5 GHz which is same as the HTC One M8. The phone looks beautiful and nicely built. It comes with 2GB RAM, 16 GB Internal memory, 5 inch Full HD display, Dual SIM feature and Boom Sound. It also features a 13 MP rear camera and 5 MP front facing camera, both capable of recording full HD videos.

Specifications And Features
Major specs and features of the HTC One E8 include:
- 2.5 GHz Quad Core Snapdragon 801 Chipset based CPU
- 2GB RAM, 16 GB internal memory, Expandable memory support of up to 128 GB
- 5 inch full HD display
- Daul SIM- Nano SIM

- 5 MP front camera
- Both front and rear cameras with Full HD video recording
- Large 2600 mAh battery

We believe at the price under Rs. 35,000 and features which are at par with many other flagships (well-almost), the HTC One E8 can be seen as a budget version of HTC One M8. If you are a person who does not need 4G connectivity (not rolled out pan-India as yet), we believe that the HTC One E8 will be able to keep you happy ins most of the aspects. We find that in the price segment, it seems like a compelling choice.
