In February, HTC announced the new HTC One, a flagship smartphone that will replace the HTC One X and the HTC One X+ as the company’s flagship smartphone. The device was originally scheduled to touch down on U.S. soil in March, but due to a delay, HTC was forced to pushed the U.S. release date back into April.

The HTC One will arrive later this month to battle other Android phones like the Nexus 4.

A short time ago, two of the three carriers that have announced the HTC One, AT&T and Sprint, revealed their plans for launch. While Sprint will be taking pre-orders tomorrow ahead of its April 19th HTC One release date, AT&T announced that it would begin taking pre-orders today for the HTC One, kicking off pre-orders in the U.S.

At 1PM CST, AT&T will become the first carrier to start taking pre-orders for the HTC One in the United States and it will be doing so ahead of its April 19th release date. However, unlike Sprint, AT&T will be taking pre-orders for not just one model, but two different variants of the HTC One. AT&T currently has an exclusive on the 64GB HTC One and it’s unclear if Sprint or the device’s other confirmed carrier, T-Mobile, will be carrying the 64GB model at any point in the future.
