HTC has finally announced the availability and picing details of the HTC One (M8) for the India market. The company’s new flagship phone will go on sale in India from the first week of May. It will be available for Rs 49,900.

The HTC One (M8) has a 5-inch, full HD (1080p) display. Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor with 2.5 GHz quad-core Krait CPUs and fully integrated 4G LTE, the phone runs Android 4.4, KitKat with its Sense 6 layer atop.

It is claimed to be the world’s first smartphone with a duo camera that features HTC’s UltraPixel module, a dual colour flash and full 1080p HD video recording. Its camera is touted to bring a new dimension to mobile imaging. It has a 5 megapiel wide-angle front facing camera.

The duo camera is said to have a depth sensor in addition to the main HTC UltraPixel module, capturing detailed depth information from a scene and enabling a range of effects that allow you to do more with your images.

For instance, its duo camera lets you alter the focus of your image after it has been clicked.

The phone will come in 16GB and 32GB versions; the company says the 16GB variant will be initially launched in India, while the 32GB version may come come later.

Unlike the previous-generation HTC One that did not allow users to expand memory, the HTC One (M8) supports a microSD card of up to 128GB for additional storage.

It has 2GB of RAM and 2600mAh battery. The HTC One (M8)’s battery is claimed to offer 40 per cent longer battery life than the previous model. The phone takes one hour to charge 80 per cent of its battery, claims the company.

It comes in three colours - Gunmetal Grey, Glacial Silver and Amber Gold. In India, it will initially come in the first two colours, while the gold-coloured variant will be launched later.
