HTC One ‘M8 Ace’ leaked a few weeks ago and additional details have now surfaced. HTC will apparently launch this as a follow-up to the all-aluminum HTC One M8, but it’ll lack one of its trademarks – the aluminum unibody. Engadget is reporting that HTC will outfit the Ace with a plastic design and stack it with impressive specs that will rival other flagship smartphones, namely a 5-inch 1080p display and a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor.

There is no indication that the M8 Ace will hit Canadian carriers, perhaps the Fido, Koodo and Virgin Mobile brands. As for a price point, it’s expected that the plastic M8 Ace will come in around $500 no-term.

    Just because it’s made out of plastic it’s $200 cheaper?
    That’s amazing!

      Yeaaa man that’s how it is these days

      Now who would want to pay $200 more just for the aluminum body? I mean for most of people who buy phones outright.

      I would, I love the look and feel of the one piece aluminium body. I hate cases on my phone so the look is important to me. I have no worries paying a premium for a premium product.

    Considering I buy my own cases, I wish all phones were made out of plastic at a lower price point.

    One thing im wondering is, the lower tier HTC phones phones (Desire 816 for example) will it have the same ultra pixel camera or another camera. I have a feeling this phone will be similar to the Desire 816, but better specs. I think its fair if people want to pay the difference between plastic and Metal.

    With all the words available to use as names, HTC couldn’t come up with something that Samsung hasn’t been using for years? The Ace/Ace II/Ace IIx, etc. is a popular Samsung model series. Seems kind of odd…
