HTC One Price Drops to $1, M8 Selling for $150

The price for the original HTC One has dropped to just $1 for customers purchasing the device through Best Buy.

In order to access the discount, users must sign a new two-year contract through AT&T, Sprint or Verizon and must purchase it before tomorrow.

The retailer is also offering the brand new HTC One M8 for just $150 with a new agreement.

The HTC One M7 comes with a 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 CPU with 2GB RAM, a 4.7-inch display with 1080 resolution, 32GB storage, a 4-Ultrapixel camera, and a 2300 mAh battery.

The HTC One 2 M8 release date, specs and new features were all revealed at last week's special unveiling event in New York City.

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."

Some of the new features on the HTC One M8 include a dual camera, the updated Sense 6, and a new version of BlinkFeed that can be customized to bring in feeds related to just about any particular topic.

The battery life has been greatly improved on the new model as it is said to last 40 percent longer than the original and can work for up to 2 weeks without being charged on standby mode. The speakers on the new model are 25 percent louder and new sensors that run in low power allow for single gesture unlocking. Users will be able to check the time without having to hit the power button and unlock, and to answer a call all one must do is hold the device up to their ear.
