New HTC One (M8) 2014 price in UK
Price is one thing which hasn't been revealed ahead of the M8's launch so we're speculating here and feel free to make your predictions in the comments section below.
The successor to the HTC One will be a premium high-end device, so we expect it will gain an appropriately matched price tag. The original started at around the £500 mark, SIM-free, and quickly dropped lower to a very reasonable £450. Take a loot at our HTC One M7 vs new HTC One M8 smartphone comparison review too.
We're going to put our bet on the £550 mark for the 'The All New One' and we'll see if we're correct.
