The rumoured HTC One M8 Ace has finally made an official appearance on the Chinese HTC website, with a launch date of June 3.
Although the Chinese HTC website calls it the HTC One Vogue Edition, it is expected to launch in the UK next week as the One M8 Ace.
At first glance, this plastic bodied HTC One M8 looks a lot like last year’s HTC One M7 but just in a more affordable body. It looks like it is going to come in a range of colours too, with blue, red, black and white shown.
Despite that new plastic body though, the One M8 Ace still packs high-end specs including the same 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor.
It has a 13-megapixel rear camera like the HTC One Mini 2, rather than the dual-sensor UltraPixel of the One M8. This is paired with a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for video calling.
The BoomSound stereo speakers are of course there, but there’s no mention of a screen size as yet.
Earlier rumours tip the display to be the same 5-inch 1080p HD panel found in the One M8.
It doesn’t look like the M8 Ace will come with an IR blaster though, if you were particularly hoping for one.
Official pricing for the One M8 Ace has yet to be revealed, but it is expected to be a mid-range affair, thanks to that plastic body.
However, we’ll hopefully find out at the official launch next week on Tuesday June 3.
