The Best Just Got Better
Last year’s HTC One delivered a wide range of innovative smartphone breakthroughs: beautiful all-metal design, an ever-changing home screen that streams customized online feeds, dual front-facing speakers and an amazing HTC UltraPixel camera.
But innovation doesn’t rest and neither does HTC. That’s why we’re introducing the HTC One (M8). With a full wrap-around, high quality, all-metal design with curved edges that naturally fit in your hand, significant enhancements to every breakthrough feature of last year’s model, as well as all-new innovations, the HTC One (M8) is designed to impress and built to perform.
With the HTC One (M8), we’ve refined this process and taken our award-winning design to another level. The housing is now wraps all the way around the sides and right up to the edge of the display screen, creating natural curves that fit snugly in your hand and make it easy to hold. It’s curved back and brushed, high-quality metal present an unsurpassed premium look for a phone that’s as easy to admire, as it is to use.
HTC DUO Camera
Some of the most prominent new features of the HTC One (M8) have to do with its ability to take truly stunning portrait photography and pictures with unique, fun and creative special effects. In a smartphone first, HTC’s Duo Camera features a dual lens that captures depth of field information and provides an entirely new set of editing tools.
UFOCUS: Never Lose Focus
The HTC One (M8)’s camera is 50 percent faster than before, with a top focusing speed of less than 300 milliseconds. After you take a photo, the UFocus capability uses the depth information collected by the dual lens camera to give you professional-looking portraits. You can easily add an artistic blur known as ‘bokeh’ around your subject with just a tap. You can also refocus the shot on any person in the photo.
ZOE VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS: Multiple Points of View
Now you can share your Zoe Video highlight reels with your friends and have them add their own photos, music or themes to create completely new highlights. Enjoy the same event photographed by different people from multiple angles for a true creative collaboration and a richer way to relive special moments.
Unlock your phone, access your home screen, and launch apps with Motion Launch. Built-in motion sensors detect when you pick up the phone, and with a single swipe or double-tap you can unlock your screen or launch an app, without even hitting the power button. Swipe left to access Widget Home. Swipe right to go to HTC BlinkFeed. Swipe up to launch the previous app. Or access the camera by holding the phone in landscape and pressing the volume down key.

Even with just 10 percent battery, you’ll have 30 hours of standby time with Extreme Power Saving Mode.
HTC BOOMSOUND: Parallel Speakers, UnParalleled Sound
HTC BoomSound boasts our signature dual front-facing speakers that project audio directly at you. The sound is crisper, richer, and fuller than competing smartphones.
The HTC One (M8) features a new multi-band amplifier that ratchets up the volume and sound quality, and boosts bass while keeping the mid/high frequencies clear. A new software balancing system optimizes bass and treble levels to ensure clear vocal and sound details. Redesigned speaker chambers result in sound that is 25 percent more powerful than the HTC One (M7). A new DSP constantly monitors the speakers to ensure the audio is never degraded by clipping or distortion.
You bought the best and HTC believes in keeping it that way. Be confident knowing your smartphone will always have the latest software updates. If your screen breaks it will be replaced for free within the first 6 months from purchase. HTC also offers free storage plus back up and restore so you’ll never lose your content.
