A series of image leaks have purportedly revealed the design of the HTC One (M8) Ace, HTC’s upcoming plastic flagship phone that’s supposed to directly compete against the plastic Galaxy S5. The upcoming handset will sell at a significantly lower price than its Korean rival’s flagship phone, according to report. Now, @evleaks has apparently found official Ace images one Chinese regulator TENAA’s website.
Pictures showing both the front and back side of the device have been published by the Chinese FCC equivalent, suggesting that recent leaks showing the handset have been authentic.
Apparently, the HTC One (M8) Ace features two BoomSound speakers on the front side, while on the back it appears to have a regular camera rather than the Duo Camera found on the HTC One (M8). These details have been revealed in previous image leaks provided by @evleaks and a different source, and seem to be confirmed by the Chinese telecommunications regulator.
While it’s not clear when the HTC One (M8) Ace will be launched, HTC has teased the handset on Twitter recently. A report from Taiwanese website ePrice says the device will be available in the region starting with June 3, which would mean a proper announcement is due. The device is expected to cost around 3,000 yuan in China, or $480.
