Whatever the reason, if all of this pre-unveiling excitement is turned into orders, HTC could have the hottest Android phone on the market this year. And it is not as though the competition is sitting still. The Samsung Galaxy S5 is expected to ring up some pretty big numbers despite the fairly tepid response to its unveiling. Unlike the HTC handset, the Galaxy S5 will include a heart rate monitor, fingerprint sensor and IP67 certification. LG will eventually introduce the LG G3, and Sony has the Sony Xperia Z2, both of which are also challengers to HTC's new model. And if Oppo can ever work out a U.S. carrier distribution deal for its Oppo Find 7, all bets are off.
If you've already decided on the all new HTC One (M8), we have some important information for you this morning. A tweet from master leaker evleaks reveals that the M8 will be priced at $600 sans contract. That matches the pricing for the all old HTC One (M7). And the tweet goes on to add that the gold colored M8 is a Best Buy only SKU.
Tuesday is right around the corner, and all of the hype will culminate in the unveiling of the all new HTC One (M8). After Tuesday, we will see if HTC has really learned how to market a phone.
