It’s seeming more and more likely that HTC’s M7 will make its debut at the HTC One, and with just five days to go until the company’s press event, the full story on the phone will be available very soon. In the meantime, some new rumors have arrived to help give us an idea of just how the smartphone will ultimately go up for sale, where you’ll find it, and how much you could hope to pay.
Last week, we saw some evidence suggesting that the handset could come to Europe on March 8, but today we look at its US release. According to this new info, T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T could get the HTC One on March 22. There’s no mention of availability for Verizon, which we already heard might delay its adoption of the One, presumably due to the effect it could have on Droid DNA sales.
As for a price, on-contract the HTC One could sell for just about $200 in its 32GB incarnation, or around $300 for 64GB.
We also get some more support for the recently leaked render, with this source confirming the presence of front-facing stereo speakers. Additionally, it’s sounding likely that the handset will feature a metal construction, with previous rubberized images of the phone now reportedly just prototype designs.
Update: The T-Mobile HTC One will reportedly arrive already prepared for the carrier’s start of LTE service.
