Google brings HTC One variant (M8) with stock Android from




Google has released a version of the HTC One (M8) with stock Android. This Google Play Edition is currently only available in the United States and costs a little more than the version with HTC Sense which is available from providers.

Google asks for the release of the HTC One (M8) converted just over 500 euros, while the version for U.S. providers without subscription fetches around 460 euros, U.S. prices are without VAT and therefore are lower than those in Europe. The phone in the Netherlands would be able to 2g and 3g, but support for Dutch 4G networks is missing in this version.

The hardware of the phone is the same as the version of Sense, but running stock Android, as for example the Nexus 5 state. However, HTC has added some Google features, such as the software implementation for retrospective focusing the Duo Camera. Moreover, many of the HTC apps are put into the Play Store, thus users would include the infrared transmitter and remote control can be used with Sense TV app, something that in the standard version of HTC Sense can anyway.

Google will send the Play version, with 32GB of storage, about two to three weeks. The One (M8) with Sense comes just over a week in the Netherlands. Google tells Tweakers that it does not know when or if the Google Play editions devices would offer in the Netherlands. HTC presented the phone Tuesday at a private event in London and New York.
