Release date details have come out for the US version of the HTC One. The carrier will have the device by the middle of April.
The HTC One should have been released in March. However thanks to delays with components there have been delays. However a reliable source has said that the handset will be on track for arrival by the middle of April.
The source has provided information that has been reliable in the past and so we could see Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile offering the handset by the time your taxes are due.
HTC said “will start fulfilling pre-orders by end March in certain markets and will roll out to more markets as we approach April.” We have also heard that the release of the device in the US has not been affected by delays.
Of course there has been talk of shortages and this has led to a lack in faith and uncertainty about the speed of a release date in the US.
It seems that HTC may be calling in favours to ensure that they get enough stock to release the handset in the US without there being shortages.
If HTC want to get a head start over the Samsung Galaxy S4 they will have to reveal the handset soon onto the market. It has been said that the Samsung Galaxy S4 could be released internationally in April and in May in the US.
The new flagship device, the HTC One, comes with a metal design that could compete with the Apple iPhone 5. HTC are putting a lot of faith into the launch of the handset being successful so that it will return the failing company to their big time Android status.
There is also a rumour that the Verizon version of the HTC One will be released around one to two months following the primary release within the US.
