Want a plastic HTC One M8? Me neither, but according to the latest rumors we could be getting one sometime soon. TMT Post is reporting that HTC is planning to introduce a plastic version of their 2014 flagship smartphone.
What will the differences be? Well, it’ll be the same exact phone, except without all that plastic that makes it feel like something that costs a whole lot of money. The new version will apparently be lighter, cheaper and should quell the fears of anyone who thinks metal hampers the mobile experience.
Apparently the device will sell for the equivalent of about $483, whereas the original is about $700. Those are pretty steep savings indeed, though it’ll be up to you to decide if that extra wadge of metal is worth another $200.
