HTC One (E8) is the cheaper, plastic alternative to the HTC One (M8)

HTC logoIf you like HTC’s One (M8), but don’t want to cough up the money for its premium construction, there’s a [nearly as capable] alternative to satiate your appetite. The new One (E8) forgoes the premium, metal construction of its older brother in favor of a more mainstream polycarbonate body.

The switch in build materials means that the One (E8) is slightly thicker (9.85 mm vs. 9.35 mm) and lighter (145 grams vs. 160 grams). Also gone are 802.11AC support and the 4MP+2MP Duocam, which has been replaced with the same 13MP rear shooter found in the recently introduced One mini 2. The One (E8) does, however, pickup dual SIM support.

Other than those major differences, the specs between the two smartphones remains the same. That means that a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor (with 2GB RAM) still powers the smartphone and you’ll be staring at the same 5” 1080p display. Likewise, the 2600 mAh battery is retained along with Android 4.4.2 KitKat (with Sense 6 tacked on).

HTC plans to release the One (E8) in select countries starting this month.
