Plastic HTC One M8 Ace leaks again in promo images

28 May, 2014

More images of the HTC One M8 Ace have found their way on the net before the official unveiling of the phone on June 3. These appear to be official promo images that tout the key features of the new phone.

First off, it's similar to the HTC Butterfly S. The HTC One M8 Ace has a plastic unibody instead of a metal one and moves some things around. The biggest change is that the dual camera setup has been dropped in favor of a single 13MP camera with single-LED flash on the back and a 5MP front-facing shooter, the same combo as on the Desire 816 and One mini 2.

The power key appears different from the vanilla HTC One (M8), but the One M8 Ace still supports double tap to wake, so you won't have to reach for it that often. And it's a reach across the 5" screen and two front-facing speakers.

The HTC One M8 Ace has a faster version of the Snapdragon 801, the one with 2.5GHz CPU clock speed. The promo images also seem to boast about efficient power usage with the Extreme Power Saving mode.

There's also an image of a very odd box, though considering the size it looks more like a promo thing than the actual retails box. If those are bubbles, this would make the phone water-resistant like the original Butterfly was.

The HTC One M8 Ace will be available in four colors White, Black, Red and Blue for a reported price of RMB 3,000 ($480), which matches up what we've heard before.

If the only downgrade is the plastic body then I can live with that. As far as I am concerned, the removal of the ultra pixel camera is a major upgrade.
