Earlier this month we heard the first time about the HTC One release date, reports indicating, that the new flagship of the Taiwan-based company will be released internationally on March 8th. Today, the first leaks about the HTC One release date in The States surfaced, as well as the alleged pricing of the smartphone codenamed HTC M7.
HTCSource informs that the HTC One will hit the US Stores only a couple of weeks after the international debut, so the American fans will be able to get their hands on the smartphone on March 22nd. The same publication writes that the next-gen HTC flagship will be available for purchase at AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile, but everybody is expecting Verizon to sell the device, too.
The new flagship smartphone of the Taiwan-based phone maker will go on sale as HTC One at the three aforementioned carriers. As you probably remember, the HTC One X didn’t receive the same treatment as it was launched under different names on the US territory. Reports are also hinting that the Big Red will sell the HTC One branded as HTC Droid DNA Plus.
There will be two body color and internal storage options for the HTC One. The smartphone will come in both black and white liveries, with storage options of 32 GB or 64 GB. Sources claims that the 32 GB model will be available for $199.99, while the 64 GB HTC One will be $100 more expensive, of course on a two-year contract with any of the carriers.
Besides the release date and pricing details, HTCSource also confirmed, quoiting a source close to the matter, that HTC One will come with user-facing stereo speakers and an aluminium body.
If it is to believe the rumors, HTC One will come with a 5-inch full HD display, which is starting to become the standard in the high-end smartphone segment, plus a quad-core 1.7 GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, 2 GB of RAM, and an 4.7 ultrapixel camera, which, according to HTC will be capable of competing against Nokia’s 808 PureView sensor.
