T-Mobile USA will officially start selling the new HTC One M9 flagship smartphone today, March 27, the carrier announced.
The HTC One M9 made its official debut as the company's latest flagship smartphone earlier this month, at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015. While last year the One M8 went on sale immediately after its unveiling, however, this year's One M9 did not get the same treatment.
The handset is set to hit retail on April 10 in the U.S., but T-Mobile has now announced an early launch. The carrier will have the HTC One M9 available for purchase starting today, March 27, through its online store.
"If you love to be first, love a great value - and don't mind being stared at - T-Mobile has news for you. The Un-carrier's offering the crave-worthy new HTC One M9 for purchase at T-Mobile.com starting tomorrow at 6:00 a.m. PDT for $0 down (and $27.08 a month for 24 months). Which means you could order HTC's latest beauty and have it delivered to your door weeks before it's available for everyone else. For those who want to see, hear and feel the device firsthand, the HTC One M9 will be available at most T-Mobile stores nationwide on April 10," the carrier announced in a new press release on Thursday, March 26.
"The HTC One has built a fanatical following, and the M9 will be a favorite whether you're a fan boy or soon-to-be convert," further touts John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. "And with Carrier Freedom, there is absolutely nothing stopping anyone from picking up HTC's latest at the Un-carrier."
At the same time, HTC also has the latest One M9 in stock starting March 27 through its online store, and notes that standard shipping will take three to eight business days with no shipping charges. The company also offers next-day or two-day shipping options at a cost. The unlocked model of the HTC One M9 costs $649, but HTC is also offering a 12-month financing option with no interest fee.
Other retailers and carriers, meanwhile, are expected to start offering the new HTC One M9 powerhouse on April 10.
