HTC One (M8) to be the 'official phone' for IPL 2014's Delhi Daredevils
HTC said on Thursday it has partnered with IPL team Delhi Daredevils to make the HTC One (M8) as the 'official phone' for the GMR Group-owned cricket franchise.

The Taiwanese firm recently unveiled the new flagship model in India with a price tag of Rs 49,900.

"The Cricket League has an incredible reach and its popularity cuts across demographics and geographies. Delhi Daredevils is one of the most youthful and exciting teams in the League with a good blend of international and Indian stars," HTC India Country Head Faisal Siddiqui said in a statement.

HTC and Delhi Daredevils share many common attributes and this is the beginning of a longer and bigger association with the Delhi Daredevils in the years to come, he added.

HTC One (M8) runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat with the company's brand new Sense 6 UI on top, which HTC is calling the biggest upgrade since Sense debuted. The phone is powered by a 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, alongside 2GB of RAM. The HTC One (M8) comes with a 5-inch full-HD display and will be available in 16GB and 32GB storage options, with support for expandable storage via microSD cards of up to 128GB capacity. It comes in Gunmetal Grey, Amber Gold, and Glacial Silver colour options. The phone comes with a 2600mAh battery.

The highlight of the HTC One (M8) is the dual rear camera setup that puts a 4-UltraPixel camera alongside a depth sensing camera enabling cool things like refocusing images after they've been clicked and other stuff. A 5-megapixel front camera is included as well. The phone packs a 2600mAh battery and supports Nano-SIM. The HTC One (M8) comes with a body that's '90 percent metal' and exudes the same premium feel as its predecessor, the HTC One.

The smartphone will be available from May 7.
