HTC One (E8) available in Singapore from July 26 for S$658

 

Just as expected, the HTC One (E8) will be available for purchase in Singapore from this Saturday, July 26 at three telcos and selected retailers. 

Priced at S$658 (without line contract and inclusive of GST), the One (E8) comes in three colors: polar white, electric crimson and misty gray. All three colors will be available at StarHub and M1, while SingTel will sell the phone in polar white and electric crimson. 

The One (E8) was announced two months ago in China. Unlike the One (M8), the One (E8) sports a polycarbonate chassis and replaces the UltraPixel rear camera with a 13-megapixel camera sensor. One crucial difference between the China version and the local model in Singapore is that the HTC One (E8) will not have dual SIM support. With that, here's a quick overview of the One (E8) and One (M8):
