While India is yet to see the official release of the new HTC One M8, the company is reportedly working on a plastic version of the smartphone.
This phone, that seems to go agains the company policy of high quality builds, will be considerably cheaper as not only will it save on material costs, but also machining costs and time which is associated with the manufacture of the current One M8.
