HTC never shared any plans to launch the One (E8) outside of China, but apparently the polycarbonate sibling to the One (M8) is headed to the big yellow shelves of Sprint.
Sprint has posted a promo video to its official YouTube channel that highlights the HTC One (E8)’s design, the viewing angles of its screen, its front-facing BoomSound speakers and its 13-megapixel rear camera. As a quick refresher, here’s the full spec rundown for the One (E8):
5-inch 1920×1080 display
Quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor
13-megapixel rear, 5-megapixel camera
microSD slot with support for cards up to 128GB
2GB of RAM
Front-facing BoomSound speakers
The promo video also shows that the Sprint version of the HTC One (E8) will support the tri-band Sprint Spark LTE service. What it doesn’t show is when the One (E8) will launch or how much it’ll cost when it does, but here’s to hoping that the appearance of this promo video means that a release is near.
