HTC One (M8) Available in Singapore from April 5

Following the official announcement of the One (M8) in New York and London on March 25, HTC Singapore today announced that the 16GB model will be available for purchase from April 5 at S$998. It will be available at all three telcos and authorized retailers.

The 16GB One (M8) will come in two colors: gunmetal gray and glacier silver. The amber gold model is not available at launch. There is also no indicative timeline on the availability of the 32GB model.

As a quick recap, the One (M8) is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core 2.5GHz processor, 2GB RAM and Sense 6. It sports a 5-inch 1080p display reinforced with Corning Gorilla Glass 3, and has a microSD memory card slot that supports memory cards up to 128GB. Other specs include a non-removable 2,600mAh battery, two rear cameras (also known as Duo Camera) and a front-facing 5-megapixel camera. 

The One (M8) will go up against the Sony Xperia Z2 (16GB), which is also available on the same day at the same price. The S$1,068 Samsung Galaxy S5 (32GB) is expected to be launched on April 11.

*Update at 11.30PM: The Dot View Case is priced at $59, but will not be available at launch.
