In celebration of the US holiday in which a groundhog predicts global weather patterns, HTC is launching two pretty nifty deals. One will take place on Groundhog’s Day, Tuesday, February 2, 2016, and the other one will happen the day after… Almost as if we got a second Groundhog’s Day two days in a row.
The deal that goes live at 12:01am ET Tuesday morning encompasses getting a free Jabra headset whenever you buy an HTC One A9. No word yet on which particular headset will be packaged with this offer, but no matter which it winds up being, Jabra is pretty good about offering high-quality sound from sturdy, well-constructed designs.
The HTC One A9 is a pretty solid device. Although the battery doesn’t pack much of a punch, you still get QC 3.0 capabilities thanks to the Snapdragon 617. It runs Marshmallow right out of the box, and even though the speakers aren’t anything to write home about, that Jabra headset seems like it could pick up the slack in that department.
The Wednesday deal is a little bit more straightforward: get 60% off the RE camera. This nifty little live-streamer looks like a toy with its periscope-esque design, but it’s actually a pretty serious little device. It pairs with your smartphone to let you livestream your experiences from just about anywhere. The pocket-sized design makes it incredibly portable, and everyone from soccer moms to video journalists will get a kick out of this tiny tool.
The deal hasn’t gone live yet, so when midnight rolls around, you’re going to want to go ahead and head to the HTC “Hot Deals” landing page to take advantage of these offers. While we wait, tell us what you think about these deals. Worth springing on, or are you going to pass? Let us know in the comments below!
