Sprint is running a promotion on its pre-order page for the HTC One where the handset will cost a mere $99 for customers new to the Now Network. The handset normally goes for $199.
New customers wanting to take advantage of this deal will be required to bring their own number, and, of course, sign a new two-year contract with the mobile operator. The device is set to release on April 19, and Sprint says that if you pre-order the device online today, they’ll do their best to get the HTC One to you “before others get a glimpse” on April 19.
The deal is here for a limited time, but if you were already planning on paying the ETF with a contract on your current carrier, switching over to Sprint just got a bit cheaper.
The HTC One has a Full HD 1980 x 1080 4.7-inch display with 468ppi. The device sports a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 2300 mAh battery, a rear-facing camera with 4 Ultrapixels and a front-facing 2.1MP shooter, which has 1080p video recording.
HTC’s flagship device comes in 32GB and 64GB models, the latter of which is exclusive to AT&T. On the software side, the One is running Sense 5 and BlinkFeed atop of Android 4.1.2. There’s been no official announcements from the Taiwanese company as to when the device will see Android 4.2 yet.
