Continue HTC One flagship family's Design and Technology
Hong Kong, July 31, 2014－HTC, a global leader in innovation and design, today unveiled the HTC One (E8) smartphone, the latest addition to its renowned HTC flagship series. Spotlighted in four key areas, the HTC One (E8) features an impressive high-definition camera, vivid visual display quality, 4G/3G seamless connectivity access in both Hong Kong and China, and the iconic ergonomic design and detailed craftsmanship that are signature to HTC smartphones. With the addition of HTC BlinkFeed™, Smart Sensor Hub with Motion Launch ™ controls, and HTC Dot View™ case, HTC One (E8) extrudes intricacy and refinement in both external and internal design.
"HTC One (E8) captures the essence of the HTC One series," said Cedric So, General Manager of Hong Kong and Macau at HTC. "With powerful internal specifications packed in an elegant and lightweight build design, the HTC One (E8) is a great choice for users in the current market. In order to further meet the needs of users, we at HTC have created an exclusive version just for Hong Kong market. The Hong Kong version focuses on taking selfies and enhanced powerful support for 4G and 3G networks in both China and Hong Kong. We hope to bring users a unique and comprehensive smartphone experience.
High quality camera with built-in Touch Up selfie enhancement
The HTC One (E8) is the ultimate selfie smartphone. The 5MP front facing camera captures detailed selfies with numerous camera modes, and its wide angle view makes it easier to capture all the smiles of loved ones. Built-in Touch Up software enhances skin tone and optimizes facial details, and the display-side countdown timer prompts everyone to strike the perfect pose for each unique moment.
Aside from the high quality front camera, HTC One (E8) is also equipped with a 13MP high-definition main camera, allowing users to capture life-like vivid images.
The ultimate music enjoyment
HTC BoomSound™ technology delivers powerful, crisp and clear audio through the dual front facing stereo speakers at either side of the screen. Through HTC BoomSound™, users can experience rich tones from bass through to treble, through headphones or speakers, for a high-quality and immersive sound experience. The volume can also be pumped up to be more powerful and louder than most average smartphones.
With a 5" full HD 1080p display, and a narrow screen edge, HTC One (E8) provides a complete immersive video and audio experience.
High speed internet connection, 4G and 3G support for both Mainland and Hong Kong
HTC One (E8) supports both Hong Kong and China FDD/TD-LTE 4G networks, allowing for download speeds of up to 150Mbps LTE CAT.4 quality. WCDMA/TD-SCDMA 3G networks are also supported, allowing frequent travelers between Hong Kong and China to access to high-speed data services at all times regardless of where they are. Stay close and connected with friends and family even when travelling.
Dual curve design
With a new ergonomically enhanced design, HTC One (E8) is vertically curved to fit naturally no matter how it is held. Tapered sides, edge-to-edge display and a slim, lightweight unibody frame ensure that the HTC One (E8) is built to perform and designed to impress, letting users express their individuality and personality through even their smartphone.
HTC Signature smartphone features
HTC BlinkFeed™ turns the home screen into a live stream of the latest news and social updates. Users can enjoy a customized newsfeed to include the latest information in personal social networks, music, science and technology, and more.
The built in Smart Sensor Hub gives HTC One (E8) an almost sixth sense function to the phone. Intelligently designed, low-power motion sensors anticipate user needs and can activate phone functions through Motion Launch ™ controls without even turning on the screen. A simple swipe will activate the device, Auto Answer allows calls to be answered just by putting the phone to the ear, and a gentle double tap is enough to turn the lock screen on and off.
Motion controls are available even while the phone is protected within the HTC Dot View™ case. Check the time, weather, texts, emails, and call information all without touching or revealing the screen. Customized wallpapers can even be set to be displayed under the protective case.
