Looks like, HTC and Google will be releasing a Google Play Edition of the new HTC One (M8) smartphone as well. HTC today listed this unannounced smartphone in the official description of the HTC Gallery app on Google Play.
HTC is going to unveil the new HTC One later today and it could officially announce the Google Play edition as well but we can’t be sure right now.
If Google and HTC follow last year’s trend, the Google Play Edition will keep the same specifications but will sport the stock version of Android 4.4.2. Thanks to the Google Play availability of HTC apps, the buyers of Google Play Edition will also be able to access some of these apps like Sense TV or Gallery, although support might be limited, as HTC states in the Gallery app description.
“.. Support for HTC One(M8) Google Play Edition is limited to HTC Photo Edit.”
There is no word on pricing or exact release date of new HTC One Google Play edition.
