HTC One U.S. Release Date Reportedly Won’t Be Delayed

The HTC One, which has seen its release date delayed until March 29th in the United Kingdom, will apparently not see its U.S. release date affected by the delay which could mean that the HTC One will arrive in the United States by the end of March.

In February, HTC announced the new HTC One, its latest flagship smartphone, and one that is set to replace the HTC One X+ and HTC One X on shelves in the United States. AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile, along with Cincinnati Bell, have thrown their support behind the HTC One and they were included in a list of global operators that were said to be getting the device in the month of March.

Yesterday though, a wrench was thrown into HTC’s global plans as the manufacturer stated that it “will start fulfilling pre-orders by end March in certain markets and will roll out to more markets as we approach April.” That likely means that some markets won’t see the device arrive until April. In the United Kingdom, the release, which was thought to be taking place on March 15th, has now been postponed until March 29th according to retailer Clove.

Those in the United States wondering if the delay might affect the release of the HTC One in the U.S. fortunately have some good news today as HTC Source, which has been accurate with HTC One details in the past, says that the HTC One U.S. release date will be unaffected by the delay since those models are on a separate timeline.

This means that there is still a good chance that the HTC One will arrive on AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile in March as expected. However, given that the information is not an official announcement, it also leaves the door open on releases during the month of April. We’ve heard that March 22nd is a possible release date in the United States but thus far, none of the carriers have confirmed that to be the HTC One release date.

One saving grace is the fact that the fine print on T-Mobile’s sign up page still points to a release by March 31st though that could change just as fast as the page appeared back in February.

The HTC One is HTC’s latest flagship smartphone and it will be offering a number of high-end features including a 4.7-inch 1080p display, quad-core processor, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Ultrapixel camera, and the new HTC Sense 5.0.

    they better not disappoint us again like they did with the one x. I am truly loyal to HTC and will give them another chance, but if they keep screwing around like they did in the past I am definitely going Samsung.

    Aren’t “the end of March” and “approaching April” the same thing? I got sick of all this beating around the bush that HTC is doing and bought a different phone. I needed a phone and these dudes can’t give us a definite date when we can go to the store and buy one of these phones. Like htc-believer, I love HTC phones, my last 2 phones were HTC but I needed one badly and wasn’t willing to wait and see if I would be waiting 2 weeks or 2 months. Bad, bad P.R. for HTC.

      SAGAR – one word to you man…GRAMMAR. Damn man, you say man to much man. Man you dont complete your sentences man. Man you sound and type like an idiot man. Look at your keys while typing and also slowly read over your post. By doing what i say, your life will be much better and maybe you would get lucky with a lady.

        Don’t be so harsh. He’s probably from a different country where English isn’t his native language and he’s still learning, which could be the reason why his grammar and spelling isn’t that great. You should think about that before you insult someone’s grammar.

      You’re gonna wait even longer if you plan on getting the S IV instead. The Galaxy S IV isn’t expected to hit the shelves until late April to early May, which by then the HTC One would have already been out. The latest we should be expecting the HTC One to release is late March to possibly the first week of April.

    If it weren’t for the Note line, I’d be all over this shit. Samsung’s build quality is complete garbage, and the S IV is full of gimmicky features. This phone looks clean and solid. If it had a decent s-pen style stylus it’d be no contest. For those who don’t care for that, it’s a no brainer.
