The HTC One release date for T-Mobile has finally been announced for April 24.
The carrier confirmed the April 24 availability date this week on its Twitter account. The announcement is specifically for the LTE version of the HTC One, which will help excite T-Mobile customers about its new LTE network.
T-Mobile will offer the HTC One for $99 down, with the rest of the price being paid off on a monthly plan. Sprint's model is expected to cost $199.99 with a new 2-year contract.
The HTC One will also launch on AT&T and will cost $199.99 with a new 2-year contract, according to the company.
This will be the price for the 32GB model of the device, according to Engadget. The 64GB version will end up costing a bit more and will take a little more time to be released.
The 64GB HTC One will launch on AT&T as an exclusive when the smartphone finally is released.
This variant of the device was revealed by a recently uploaded video to the service provider's YouTube channel. The 32GB version will also be offered by the carrier, but will not be an exclusive.
Despite some major setbacks, reactions to HTC's One smartphone have been good as pre-orders for the device in the U.S. have exceeded the smartphone maker's expectations.
After some issues with components, HTC had to push back the device's release in order to meet customer demand. And even with those problems, the HTC One was still able to stir up a huge buzz throughout the U.S., according to the company.
HTC is also expected to launch a red variant along with a special Developer Edition on April 19.
