Sprint basically just confirmed that they are going to be carrying the HTC One E8 soon. They’ve posted both a video and a graphic of the HTC One E8 with Sprint branding around it. As you can see in the image above. There’s no Sprint branding on the One E8, but there is one the graphic. The HTC One E8 was announced a few months ago, and is basically a plastic One M8, which is cheaper and was launched in markets that aren’t as developed as the US, namely India. The HTC One E8 features a 5-inch 1080p Display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. So as you can see all the specs are the same as the HTC One M8. Aside from the metal casing. Instead we have a glossy plastic casing, unless it’s the black version then it’s a matte finish.
We haven’t gotten our hands on a HTC One E8 just yet because well it wasn’t announced to come to the US. And it still technically isn’t, but with these images popping up on Sprint’s site, it all but confirms that it’s coming to Sprint. The HTC One E8 should be a bit cheaper on contract from Sprint than the HTC One M8, due to the device being cheaper for HTC to make. Even though it is plastic, I’m still a fan of the device, I think it looks really nice, especially the black and gold one. Hopefully we can get our hands on one after Sprint makes it official soon.
Sprint does have an event next week, so they could throw this in that event and announce the device. Which we’ll be covering that event as you’d expect as well. How many of you are interested in the HTC One E8? Let us know in the comments below.
