With pre-orders of the HTC One just a day away in the United States, we know many of you are stills tuck debating if you should go for the One or get the Galaxy S 4 that includes all the expandable storage that you can’t get on the One, unless you’re on AT&T and get the 64GB model obviously.
On some interesting news today, it turns out that there is a model of the HTC One that doesn’t make that aluminum back a removable panel, but also has a microSD slot for expandable storage. Sadly this is an exclusive to China, so don’t get your hopes up. That’s the reason why you see two SIM card slots on it, since Dual SIM phones are “the thing” over there. And yes, we do know that the fact that we use LTE in the US makes a big difference to what they use over there, but doesn’t it make you wonder why HTC doesn’t figure out a similar solution for our market? For many, the debate over getting an HTC One would be over if this variant would make our shores, but sadly, it most likely won’t happen.
For those of you wondering how that removable panel works, try to remember how you could remove the metallic back on the HTC HD2, and that’s a similar solution to what you see here.
