Contrary to speculations, Verizon did not unveil its own HTC One version during its media event at CTIA 2013, introducing instead J.Lo’s Viva Movil mobile experience of which Verizon is an exclusive partner. In addition…
A few weeks ago the international release date for the HTC One (M7) was leaked – March 8 – and now it looks like we have a launch date for the U.S. market as well.
U.S. HTC fans will apparently get the phone a couple of weeks after international buyers, with March 22 being the rumored launch date for the HTC One. The device will be available with all the four major carriers in the country, although HTC Source only mentioned AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile in its report.
The three carriers will launch the device under the same name, HTC One, which must certainly be great news for the company considering that the its predecessors didn’t have the same luck in the region. At the same time, Verizon could sell the device as the HTC Droid DNA Plus, or something like that, if a recent report is to be believed.
The HTC One will be available in two color options in the U.S., black and silver/white, and in two capacity versions, 32GB priced at $199.99 and 64GB priced at $299.99. Naturally, these are on-contract prices, so you can expect to pay more for the HTC One outright.
In addition to release dates and pricing, the source speaking to the publication also confirmed that the HTC One will feature a metal case and front-facing stereo speakers.
U.S. Android fans, are you buying the HTC One? What carrier will you be choosing?
