Carphone Warehouse is exclusively stocking the HTC One M8 in Blue for its UK release
HTC has announced the One M8 is now available in blue in the UK. It allegedly marks the first time the UK has seen the launch of the blue version and it will be exclusively sold at Carphone Warehouse - however, we have previously seen a blue version available via MobileFun, so we're not sure this is enitrely accurate.
Initially the HTC One M8 launched in grey, silver and gold. A couple of months later the UK received both red and pink versions of the handset. Blue now joins in the bold colour choices designed for people HTC calls “those who want their mobile to reflect their style and taste.”
The HTC One M8 launched back in March to mostly positive reviews by critics – we gave the handset a 4.5 out of 5 and praised it for a beautiful design and build.
The HTC One M8 comes with a 5in 1920 x 1080 pixel display at 440ppi. Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.3GHz backed up with 2GB of RAM.
The handset is available in either 16GB or 32GB internal storage options whilst there is microSD support up to 128GB for both.
It currently runs on Android 4.4.3 KitKat but HTC has confirmed it plans to update it to Android 5.0 Lollipop by the end of February 2015.
If you’d like a blue version of the HTC One M8 you can get it now from Carphone Warehouse. It is available on contract from £28 a month or SIM-free for £529.95.
Recently HTC released a version of the One M8 running Windows Phone software. It was made exclusively available on Verizon in the US and so far there has been no word of an international release for the handset.
