With the wraps on HTC’s flagship smartphone of 2013 taken off at a simultaneous event in New York and London, the smartphone is now available for pre-order in the United Kingdom. Maybe sources have confirmed that the device would start retailing from the 15th of March. Several rumours before the launch suggested that the device would be available in the U.K. from March 8, but we suppose the Taiwanese manufacturer decided to delay the availability date by a week.
As for the price, Clove Mobile has shared the unlocked price for the HTC One. In addition, many technology sites are speculating that an unlocked HTC One would cost somewhere between 400-500 pounds – the same price an unlocked HTC One X was going for a year ago.
The HTC One boasts a 4.7-inch Full HD 1080p display, 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor along with 2GB of RAM. In terms of connectivity, the HTC One features WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, NFC and Infrared. Other than that, the One will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with a brand new revamped version of HTC Sense on top of it.
HTC has ditched the conventional and went with a rather interesting UltraPixel camera – at least that’s what they call it. There’s been a lot of buzz circulating regarding the 4-megapixel camera, but HTC said that it’ll produce images large enough to be used as posters and would be four times better in terms of quality when compared with conventional smartphone cameras. Other than the camera, there will be a 2,300mAh battery at the back and a 2.1-megapixel conventional camera on the front.
HTC One will be available in the 32GB and 64GB variants. However, there will be no expandable storage present on the device. We highly suggest you take this into consideration when buying the device once it becomes available.
