Chinese ifanr has released a report suggesting the HTC One (M8) "Ace Vogue" (possibly a local version of the "Ace") might launch as soon as June 3. Additionally, the price of the plastic HTC One (M8) alternative is dubbed at approximately $481 (RMB3,000), placing it right under the Samsung Galaxy S5.
As far as specs are concerned, the plastic HTC One (M8) Ace will have a Snapdragon 801 chip (8974AC) with 2GB of RAM and a 2.5GHz quad-core CPU. At the front, there's a 5" 1080p Super LCD 3 display and a 5MP camera. The BoomSound stereo speakers will also be present.
The battery of the One (M8) Ace is believed to have 2,600mAh capacity, while the phone sports a 16/32GB internal memory that's expandable with an additional 128GB.
There's also a new alleged picture of the phone. Just like the previous one, the phone sports a curvy design and an LED flash right above the 13MP camera. Sadly, the Power/Lock button is still at the top of the device. As we found out in our HTC One (M8) review, that's not really an ideal location.
The report suggests we should expect the One (M8) Ace to launch next week in China in black, red, blue and white variations.
