News on the release date for this new smartphone has been confirmed, it will be a Best Buy launch exclusive offered on September 15. It will be offer on Verizon Wireless, Sprint and AT&T with 4G LTE.
Best Buy will be stocking the vivid blue HTC One in 1400 Best Buy stores across the US and it will be available the Best Buy website, along with carrier options. Best Buy did not announce any pricing for on or off contract, with the launch a week away, we expect this news to come out soon.
The vivid blue HTC One has been on quite a journey, from the factory floor leak to the news that Verizon Wireless would pick this up as an exclusive color to combat Sprint picking up the red version of the smartphone, to HTC announcing the vivid blue HTC One at IFA a few days ago.
Specs-junkies that claim the HTC One is already outdated are wrong, the smartphone still has a lot to offer and HTC is expected to rollout Android 4.3 with a new version of Sense 5 in a few weeks, this rollout will include the US, Asia and Europe.
Inside the HTC One is a Snapdragon 600 CPU, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 4 Ultrapixel camera, BoomSound front facing speakers and the gorgeous 1080p display.
Prices on the HTC One have dropped down below the iPhone 5 price and it is easy to pick up an off contract smartphone on eBay and other websites. We would say if you are in the market for a high-end Android smartphone, the HTC One is a cheap and delightful package.
