The price of the gold version of the HTC One M8 has dropped to $99 on contract with AT&T, Verizon and Sprint.
This is basically a 50 percent discount for those interested in getting their hands on the phone. The deal is being offered by HTC for the three carriers on its website.
The promotion will end at midnight tonight or until supplies last. This is the 32GB model with free shipping and HTC will also throw in the Advantage extended warranty plan that gives buyers a one-time free broken screen replacement during the first six months of ownership, free Google Drive storage for two years, and the guarantee of timely Android updates.
The HTC One M8 launched earlier this year. Specs and Sense 6.0 were all revealed at special unveiling event in New York City in March.
The company's CEO Peter Chou started off the event by discussing the success of the original HTC One M7 and commented on the strategy used to create the latest version.
"People are still saying the HTC One is the best, most beautiful smartphone," said Chou.
The device features a refined version of the all metal design found on the original One.
For the new HTC One M8 Chou stated that its "design is so pure and honest" and that HTC has "pushed the use of metal further than anyone in the industry." He also took a shot at some of his company's competitors, who use "too much plastic."
Other specs on the HTC One M8 include a 5-megapixel front facing shooter for video chatting and selfies that can be accessed with a swipe, a Snapdragon 801 chipset, an improved version of HTC Zoe, and a 5-inch 440 ppi display.
