HTC One Headed to AT&T, Sprint on April 19
AT&T will offer a 32 gigabyte version for $200 with a two-year contract, and an exclusive 64GB model for $300. Preorders start on April 4 at 11 am PT. Meanwhile, Sprint will begin taking preorders for the 32GB HTC One on April 5. Pricing is also set at $200.
HTC’s flagship phone will make the rounds to all four major U.S. service providers. T-Mobile said at its media event last week that the HTC One will be available with its new Simple Choice plans for $100 down and 24 monthly payments of $20. The handset is expected this spring, but a specific date has not been announced.
As we reported earlier, Verizon’s version is expected to come a month or two after the other carriers.
Announced back in February, the HTC One features a 4.7-inch HD touchscreen, a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor, and integrated Beats Audio technology. The smartphone also has what HTC is calling an “Ultrapixel” camera, which promises better low-light performance and has a built-in video editor, among other things.
Early impressions from tech reviewers have been largely positive, with many pointing out that the aluminum-backed design of the HTC One makes it feel better than the plastic body of the Samsung Galaxy S4.
