Earlier this month, Sprint announced that it would offer the HTC One (E8), without saying exactly when. Well, the handset is available to buy starting today, being offered in two color versions: polar white, and misty grey.
Essentially a cheaper version of the One (M8), the One (E8) has a body that’s made out of plastic, not metal - though it retains the overall design of the One (M8). Sprint is selling the new smartphone for $99.99 on contract, or $499.99 off contract. Customers can also choose Sprint’s Easy Pay plan ($0.00 down, and $20.84 monthly payments for two years). As you may know, the One (M8) is offered by Sprint for $199.99 on contract, or $649.99 sans any agreement, so getting the E8 will allow you to save precious bucks.
The One (E8) runs Android 4.4 KitKat with Sense 6.0 UI, and has a 13 MP rear camera instead of the Duo rear snapper of the One (M8). But the rest of its features have remained unchanged.
