TAIPEI--A flashy pink version of HTC (宏達電) Corp.'s latest flagship phone, the One M8, will expand color options beyond the already available grey, silver, gold and red when it hits local shelves next Monday, the company said Friday.
The new color will be available at HTC stores in Taiwan Monday Aug. 11, and at Taiwan Mobile Co., the country's second-biggest carrier, Aug. 16.
Since the metal-bodied phone was launched on March 25, the One M8 has received rave reviews across the world and even helped the company turn a profit in the second quarter of the year before it slumped again in July.
The M8 is equipped with a 5-inch 1080p full-HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 2.5GHz quad-core processor, an "ultrapixel" rear camera, a 5-megapixel front camera, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of built-in memory and a 2,600 mAh battery.
Selling at a price tag of NT$21,900 (US$725.33) for the 16GB model, the smartphone supports full-spectrum 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) connectivity in Taiwan including the 700 MHz, 900 MHz and 1800 MHz frequency bands.
