HTC One is now available in Canada from various carriers including Rogers, Bell, TELUS and Virgin. The release date of the handset comes as expected on April 19.
The Taiwanese smartphone maker announced its flagship smartphone HTC One at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) event in February this year, and now the smartphone will make its way to Canadian smartphone users beginning April 19.
Initially, the HTC One was expected to hit shelves in March but component supply issues circling over the HTC One's UltraPixel camera sensor forced the company to delay the launch of its latest Android handset to April.
The April 19 release date of the handset was confirmed by a few carriers and the wait for many smartphone enthusiasts have come to an end as the handset starts shipping to customers.
"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.
"Great news for all the #HTCOne lovers - your favourite device will be in store April 19. Pre order details to come http://ow.ly/jIe6m," tweeted TELUS.
All four Canadian carriers –– Rogers, Bell, Virgin and TELUS –– are offering the HTC One starting at $149 on a three-year contract, while all the carriers are also offering the handset for an outright cost.
The latest HTC One sports 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 measures 5.41 x 2.69 x 0.37 inches and weighs 5.04 ounces.
