With the HTC One M9’s recent launch, you’d be forgiven for thinking that HTC has forgotten all about the HTC One M8.

Well, the Taiwanese brand has just announced the HTC One M8s; a repackaged version of the HTC One M8 that has less of an impact on your wallet. The cheaper handset will cost £379.99 SIM-free, which is much cheaper than the HTC One M8’s price of £549.99.

Has this price drop made one of our favourite phones of 2014 any different? The HTC One M8s ditches the HTC One M8’s premium processor for a mid-range version, whilst internal storage has has been limited to 16GB. You can, however, add up to 128GB of external memory via a micro SD card. The phone also comes pre-installed with Android 5.0 Lollipop.

Although the HTC One M8s has a lower quality, 13-megapixel camera on the rear, you should still be able to snap some decent quality photographs. The 5-megapixel camera on the front of the phone should also allow you to take some decent selfies.

Looks-wise, HTC hasn’t changed much with the price cut and the HTC One M8s looks almost identical to the premium HTC One M8. You can get it in three different colours; silver, gold, and gunmetal grey.

There’s been no word on a UK release date yet, but we’ll keep you updated as more details arrive.
