HTC fans in India may soon be able to get their hands on the HTC One (E8). HTC India has invited the press to attend a launch event on Friday, July 11 in New Delhi. While the HTC One (E8) isn’t specifically mentioned, we have a hard time imagining that HTC would send out invitations to the press so that they can get some quality hands-on time with the new HTC Desire 616.
The HTC One (E8) made its debut in China a little over a month ago as an alternative to the HTC One (M8) for those on a tighter budget. The HTC One (E8) loses the metal body of the One (M8) and the UltraPixel DuoCamera setup is replaced with a more traditional 13 megapixel rear camera – bringing the price of the phone down by over 40%. If HTC is able to get the HTC One (E8) in the hands of consumers in India more markets across Asia, the company may be able to boost its bottom line and pull off a profit in two consecutive quarters.
