HTC One (M8) Google Edition

HTC's new flagship smartphone has barely hit the shelves, but the company has already announced that it will be releasing a stock Android version of the handset.

The Google Edition of the smartphone will come in silver and set you back around £500 and supports wireless bands like GSM, WCDMA and LTE.

People who opt for the vanilla version of the handset will be able to take advantage of the M8's Duo Camera, although they won't be bogged down with HTC's Sense 6 interface.

The HTC One (M8) Google Play edition is now available for pre-order with people being able to buy it from the Google Play store "in the coming weeks", according to the Taiwanese manufacturer.

The new flagship brings a five-inch full-HD display, 2.3 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor and comes running Android 4.4, KitKat. It also sports a number of new exciting features like Duo Camera tech and Motion Launch controls.
