HTC launched its latest flagship smartphone, the HTC One, in February 2013 and now the handset is available from UK carrier Three.
"With over 300 remarkable new features, a completely new live home screen, first-of-its-kind living photo gallery and dual frontal stereo speakers. All encased in a beautifully crafted, full aluminium metal body with zero gap construction that took 12 years to perfect," says the product description of the HTC One on Three's website.
Three is offering the HTC one for free on a two-year contract. Customers can opt for a £34 per month price plan, which offers unlimited data, 500 cross network minutes and 5000 texts. For £36 per month you'll get Three's "One Plan," which gets you unlimited data (with tethering included), 2000 cross network minutes, 5000 Three-to-Three minutes and 5000 texts. The phone is also being offered on Pay As You Go for £479.99. The handset is available in silver and black color options.
The HTC One sports top-end specifications and the company is hoping that its flagship smartphone entices customers looking for a high-end handset. The smartphone has a 4.7-inch Super LCD 3 capacitive touchscreen display with a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
A 1.7 GHz quad core Qualcomm APQ8064T Snapdragon 600 processor 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.
The handset weighs 5.41 x 2.69 x 0.37 inches and weighs 5.04 ounces.
As per a recent report, Samsung will price the Galaxy S4 for £600 on Pay As You Go, which may sound quite steep to many smartphone enthusiasts.
With Galaxy S4 on the anvil, it will be interesting to see if the HTC One is able to bring high demand in the competitive smartphone space.
