Though we did receive a picture of the HTC (M8) Ace's front but it was quite blurred to make out anything of it. However, we can now decided whether we like the looks of it or not because we have received a very clear shot of the phone's back panel, courtesy of the Chinese news outlet ifanr. Thanks to them, we can now have an idea what the plastic variant of HTC One M8 looks like.
For the costs to be cut down, the phone has been made out of polycarbonate and it can still compete with the Samsung Galaxy S5. Though the phone resembles a lot with the original HTC One M8, it lacks the premium dual-camera setup which might be a big turn off for a few of you. There is also another major change – the phone will have an LED flash instead of One (M8)'s 4MP sensor. We are not yet sure about the camera and the phone will either feature an UltraPixel sensor or a regular 8MP or 13MP camera.
Apart from this, there is little to talk about regarding the phone and so far we only have the rumors most of which are suggesting that the phone will sport a 5" 1080p display and will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC with 2.5GHz quad-core CPU. This cheaper version of the HTC One is said to be priced at CN¥3,000 (around $480).
