HTC won’t be keeping people on the edge of their seats wondering if there will ever be a developer edition of the HTC One M8. The company has quietly listed the device online, and you can order it right now if you have $649 to spare.
It’s nearly the same as all the other HTC One M8 devices we’ve been talking about as of late, except it comes with an unlockable bootloader and no carrier bloatware. There is one weird exception, though —
the listing for the developer edition M8 shows Snapdragon 800 as the processor. The HTC One M8 is advertised with a Snapdragon 801.
We’re not sure if that is an intentional change or just a typo by whoever set this page up, but you know we’ll be knocking on HTC’s door to find out. In the meantime, know that the device is confirmed to be fully compatible with AT&T’s network here in the states, including HSPA+ and 4G LTE.
UPDATE: HTC has reached out to us, letting us know that this was indeed a typo. This phone is essentially the unbranded version as the AT&T model (just like last year’s), and HTC is working on updating the page to avoid further confusion.
Looking to take the plunge? You can find everything you need right here, but don’t expect it to ship for another couple of weeks.
