HTC One to be available soon at a Best Buy near you

by: Ankit BanerjeeMarch 11, 2013


This week is going to be known as the Samsung Galaxy S4 week, as we build up to the launch of the Samsung flagship on March 14. But difficult to ignore is another absolutely stunning device that will be making its way to Best Buy store shelves near you very soon, the HTC One.

According to a tip received by Phone Arena, Best Buy has put up signs teasing the launch of the highly-anticipated HTC One, which also says that the device is up for pre-order in stores now. In the US, he HTC flagship device will be available from network carriers AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint, with the smartphone expected to be released later this month. In case you need a reminder, here’s a quick look at the amazing specifications of the HTC One –

  • 4.7-inch Super LCD 3 display with 1920×1080 resolution
  • 1.7 Ghz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor
  • Adreno 320 GPU
  • 2GB RAM
  • 32/64GB internal storage, no microSD expansion available
  • 4 UltraPixel rear camera with HTC ImageChip 2, 2.1MP front camera
  • 2,300 mAh battery
  • Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with HTC Sense 5 and Blinkfeed

One of the biggest problems HTC has faced in the last two years is a failure in marketing and advertising, but HTC now has plans to rectify those mistakes, and will be more aggressive in raising consumer interest in some of the great features the device has to offer, including Blinkfeed, the new UltraPixel camera, and BoomSound.

HTC has fallen a long way from the being the top Android device manufacturer only a few years back, and hopefully this time around, the company will enjoy the comeback it so richly deserves.

Will you be buying the HTC One? How do you think the device will do against the likes of the Sony Xperia Z and the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.

    I just left Best Buy after reading this article and although the sign is in the store, the phone is not available for pre order. The reps didn’t even know the sign was there! They also did this when I went to pre order the Evo 4g LTE. I called another BB and was told that it should be available for pre order on Wednesday.

    By chance stopped by the local BestBuy this morning, but they werent taking pre-orders yet, nor did they know when they would. After seeing this, I called two other local stores, but got the same thing…no pre-order yet, nor a date that they would. Guess I’ll try back Wednesday.

        I just checked best buy . They are not taking pre orders yet. They don’t know when either. It might Be delayed due to shortages in parts

  • Mike Reid

    Some O2 customers in Germany have had their One’s for a few days now.

  • I would love to get this phone but we still don’t have any release date yet for this here in the US. I know of the shortage issue but no date means I have to think of another phone. That is sad

    • You do now. It will be Released on 4-19, first to those that preordered it.

    A friend of mine knows some people and said that they’re having some issues(we’ve all read about this elsewhere) so they probably won’t ship to the US till april :[

    Already told my ATT salesperson to hold two for me – one for my better half! This is the One! Can’t wait to dump our iPhones.

  • HTC makes the best Android phones hands down.

    Htc has always has been the best in making solid phones. I hope they can be back on top again with the htc one.

  • Went in to Best Buy and pre ordered my HTC ONE in silver this morning. It will be at the stores on 4-19. You can go to Best Buy and pre order the HTC ONE in your choice of carrier and Black or Silver.
