HTC One M8 plastic version to be called One M8 Ace

HTC One M8 AceThe rumoured plastic version of HTC One M8 smartphone, which is reportedly coming in May, can be dubbed as One M8 Ace. According to a report in Engadget, One M8 Ace will carry the same key specifications as One M8 but with a lower price-tag to take on Samsung Galaxy S5.

The phone will come with 5-inch full HD display, 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, and KitKat. There is however no confirmation on the presence of Duo Camera on M8 Ace, which might not appear on this comparably affordable smartphone.

Engadget notes that the phone will be priced CN¥3,000 ($480) in China, as was reported earlier too.

To remind you, @evleaks had shared an alleged image of the HTC One M8 Ace earlier this month, embedded above.
