By April 21st, 2014 AT 8:27 PM

HTC has gone all guns blazing today in India and has launched 3 new devices in the country targeted at different budget segments. It has launched its flagship device, the HTC One M8 for Rs 49,900 while the mid-range phablet Desire 816 for Rs 23,990 and the low-end Desire 210 for Rs 8,700. HTC seems to have gotten the pricing almost right this time around for all of its devices.
