A couple of weeks ago, Sprint teased the arrival of the plastic sibling of the HTC One M8 known as the One E8. However, there was no clarity on when the handset will be officially available for purchase. That changes today as the carrier is now taking orders for the smartphone, with a price tag of $499.99 up front or $199.99 with a two year contract. The smartphone is also available through the carrier’s monthly installment plans at $20.84 per month for a period of two years.
The smartphone is very identical to the One M8 as far as inner hardware is concerned, but with a few distinguishing factors. The change that’s immediately noticeable is the plastic body in favor of metal to cut down material costs and also the weight to a great extent.
Also, there’s a solitary 13-megapixel camera on the back with none of the Duo Camera brouhaha. Barring that, the smartphone packs exactly the same feature set as the One M8 including the 5 inch 1080p display, the Snapdragon 801 SoC, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, Android 4.4.2 KitKat and a 2,600 mAh battery.
Customers can buy the smartphone through Sprint’s online or retail outlets immediately. Head over to Sprint’s listing from the link below if you’re interested in snatching one up.
