The M8 Google Play Edition will support HTC's proprietary DuoCamera technology, which makes it possible to refocus photos after they have been saved.

This is the second Google Play edition smartphone to come from the company after demand from customers led to the release of the HTC M7 Google edition.

More details regarding the Google Play Edition of the HTC M8 will likely be revealed at Google's I/O conference in June.
