HTC One (M8) is certified with IPx3 rating, confirmed by Jeff Gordon

The HTC One (M8) was announced few days ago, although HTC didn't mentioned that the device is certified with any rating, but there's a video shows the device is waterproof. As for this matter, Jeff Gordon, Senior Global Online Communications Manager at HTC, has confirmed that the device is certified with IPx3 rating on his tweet.

The tweet has been removed, however we got a screenshot from ePrice. Jeff has stated that the HTC One (M8) is certified with IPx3 rating, which means the device is protected from water spray up to 60 degrees at 10 litres per minute with the pressure of 80-100 kN/m2 up to 5 minutes. Note that the device is not waterproof like the Xperia Z2 or Galaxy S5, it is just protected from water spray.

The HTC One (M8) sports a unibody made of 90% metal as opposed to 70% for its predecessor. As usual the device has the same dual frontal stereo speakers, BoomSound, as the 2013's One but it does not support Beats Audio music enhancement.

The device is powered by Snapdragon 801 processor with 2 GB of RAM, our region will be getting the unit with 2.5 GHz clock speed instead of 2.3 GHz which found in the US version. The device has 16 GB and 32 GB internal storage and it is expandable via microSD card up to 128 GB.

The One (M8) has Duo Camera at the back with UltraPixel tech. The sensor is the same 4 MP BSI one with giant 2┬Ám pixels, but there's a new imaging processor attached and HTC has ditched the optical image stabilization tech. The second camera is actually a depth sensor. It allows the One to perform all sorts of neat tricks especially in post processing, such as blurring backgrounds or changing the focus point just like Nokia Refocus app. It has also 5 MP front-facing shooter too.

Juicing up the device is a 2,600 mAh battery with the promised of 20 hours talk time. It also comes with Extreme power saving mode, which maximise the standby time up to 40 days.

The device will enter Malaysian market by April and it will available to four major telcos which are Maxis, DiGi, Celcom and U Mobile.
