Live: HTC One (M8) Event in NYC

We are finally here! After more leaks than anyone can possibly keep track of, HTC will take the stage at 11AM Eastern (8AM Pacific) at dual events in London and New York City and make the “All New HTC One” or HTC One (2014) or HTC One (M8) official. It has been quite the journey, leaving few surprises, but we are still looking forward to the show (and time with the device).

While nothing is confirmed yet, once this wraps, you will more than likely be able to order the phone from a variety of carriers at 1PM Eastern (10AM Pacific), with in-store exclusivity belonging to Verizon. And yes, Verizon stores will have the phone on-hand today if you want to go play with it. Pricing is looking like $199 on-contract for a 32GB variant, with full retail dropping in at a respectable $599.

We won’t run through the specs again, because you probably know them by heart at this point. We’ll have all of that official info ready for you shortly.

HTC will live stream the event, so should we happen upon a URL to embed, we will include that below. If they don’t make the stream embeddable, you can watch it here. We have also included a live blog, since our man Tim is on the scene in NYC, ready to take in the event.

    dafuq androidcentral already has their review up xDD man htc that’s bad

  • flosserelli

    The proof is in the hands-on experience, but from what I saw today, I think HTC just bitchslapped the S5.

  • Daeshaun Griffiths

    the music at the end was baws

  • WCM3

    Is this guy a horrible speaker or is that just me?

  • Milind Shah

    Went on android central for a bit and what kellen said was true :/// they already have the phone ://

  • Ryan N

    the Ufocus is the only feature I really can respect. Yeah, their presentation demo looked good but I wonder how well it will work in real world conditions…


    ANYWAY, this brings me to reflect on google’s project tango. Imagine the camera on a phone with that sort of physical environment awareness!

  • Miguel

    Please Google use the body of the HTC One as the next Nexus phone, thank you, sincerely, a lot of us.

  • panicswhenubered

    Does it have on-screen buttons and touch sensitive button next to the HTC logo? The chin seems ridiculously big.

  • CCCO

    Is it just me or does this guy look like a less troubled Dennis from It’s Always Sunny?

  • michael arazan

    Dat Bezel in Landscape mode?

  • pearllydan

    Sorry but the Galaxy S5 is better… EXCLUDING looks!!

    • The Narrator

      You mean the Sony Z2 and future G3*

    • WitnessG

      I agree with this. The S5 looks like a better phone overall, the One only has a better build quality.

      • Miguel

        You just replied to your self, you said better built quality/

    • Miguel

      In what shape, look or form???

  • BillySuede

    using a codename as part of the official name?!

    congrats on a slick looking phone but the powers that be at htc are in dire need of a marketing tutorial.

  • Rob

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

  • OneForTheGoodDays

    Wow… the stream isn’t even available?

    • michael arazan

      HTC’s webpage has the live event, wouldn’t work on chrome, does work on IE here

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Link is dead! HTC….Youtube live Stream exists for a reason!

    • michael arazan

      I could only get the event to work through IE at HTC live event US on their site, wouldn’t work in chrome

  • The Narrator

    “Dot View” case….dafuq

  • Minh Duong

    don’t see live stream

  • Daistaar

    Does this mean Viva Movil will have it in store as well?

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    “$199 on-contract for a 32GB variant, with full retail dropping in at a respectable $599” – Would you look at that $50 less than the S5 for double the storage.

    • The Narrator

      Somebody got it yesterday for $499 lol

    You guys should take the train to poughkeepsie, we’ll have some beers after 🙂

    • BMC123

      did you ever pick your feet in poughkeepsie?

  • Chris Allen

    In store exclusivity? You know, nevermind. I don’t think i’m interested anymore.

    • Chris

      because its soooo hard getting off that couch and going out in the daylight and interacting with actual humans rather then a computer screen….

      • Chris Allen

        Read the article douche. VERIZON in store exclusivity. Now I CAN’T go out to a store and “interact with actual humans” and buy one from my carrier’s physical store because Verizon is the only store that will carry it. And Verizon’s version is most assuredly to be different than everyone elses. I don’t buy phones without being able to touch it and use it.

        • Chris

          Chill out. I do the same thing.

        • The Narrator

          Don’t feed em

  • I just can’t believe HTC wouldn’t give you a phone early on for a proper review like other tech sites. Don’t they know how great you guys are??

    • ᕙ(⇀‸↼‶)ᕗ

      They’re probably jealous of the site’s name. Rename it HTC-Life and I’m sure they’d give Kellen the device to review 🙂

    • The Narrator

      Oh well, they’ll get it another way.

    • michael arazan

      Everyone look under your seats and pick up your review units!!

      Making BlinkFeed open for all developers, best idea so far.
