HTC announced its flagship smartphone HTC One in February, and now the smartphone will make its way to Canadian smartphone users beginning April 19 as expected.
Initially, the HTC One was expected to hit shelves in March but component supply issues circling over the HTC One's UltraPixel camera sensor led to HTC being forced to delay the launch of its latest Android handset to April.
"We had an inkling the One would be coming to Canada around this time," reports Mobile Syrup.
The HTC One sports high-end hardware specifications and software features. HTC is hoping that its new flagship handset appeals to customers looking for a top-end smartphone.
Till now Canadian carriers TELUS and Rogers have confirmed that they will offer the handset from April 19 onward. Bell and Virgin will also offer the handset but have not confirmed the release date of the smartphone.
"The #HTCOne will be arriving at Rogers April 19. Reserve yours on the Rogers Reservation System or pre-order now http://roge.rs/13SfeMd ^SM," tweeted Rogers.
The latest HTC offering sports a 4.7-inch Super LCD 3 capacitive touchscreen display with a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. A quad core Qualcomm APQ8064T Snapdragon 600 processor clocked at 1.7GHz powers the smartphones. The HTC One also touts a 2-UltraPixel rear-facing camera.
The HTC One also has 2GB of RAM, 32GB/64GB internal storage, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, 4G, high speed HSPA+, micro USB and a 2,300 mAh battery. Recent reports confirm that the 64GB variant of the handset will be exclusive to AT&T in the U.S.
The handset measures 5.41 x 2.69 x 0.37 inches and weighs 5.04 ounces.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is also expected to release soon, so it will be interesting to see if HTC is able to attract customers to the latest HTC One.
