HTC One

HTC"s plopped up its U.S.-specific HTC One specs list. Of particular interest to us here, of course, are the U.S. carrier radio frequencies. (OK, of interest to those of us who worry about such things.)

So, without further ado, here are the radio frequencies for the HTC One in the United States:

GSM/GPRS/EDGE

  • 850/900/1800/1900 MHz

WCDMA

  • AT&T: 850/1900/2100 MHz
  • T-Mobile: 850/AWS/1900/2100 MHz
  • Sprint: 700/AWS MHz

CDMA

  • Sprint: 800/1900 MHz (BC0/BC1/BC10)

LTE

  • AT&T: 700/850/AWS/1900 MHz
  • T-Mobile: 700/AWS MHz
  • Sprint: 1900 MHz

It's great to see multiband radios starting (emphasis on STARTING) to catch up to the proliferation of frequencies in use.

ExtremeNerd says:

Will this support ALL bands in the same device? Or will this be carrier specific much like the GS3?

movielover76 says:

It'll be different models I'm sure.

doomstang says:

No Sprint 800 for LTE? :(

digmys says:

Sprint is no where near deploying LTE on 800mhz as they are still in the process of decommissioning nextel. You will see it start to be deployed and in phones late this year, early 2014.

hotbbq says:

Yeah I was pretty bummed about that too. I keep my phones for quite awhile so I've been hoping to pick up a phone with 800Mhz LTE support.

mech1164 says:

LTE for Tmo in the 700 frequency? I thought they were rolling out LTE first on the 1700 frequency. This should be interesting.

doomstang says:

Looks like it could be a typo...they may have meant 1700 and just forgotten the 1 in front.

movielover76 says:

AWS contains 1700 Mhz/2100 Mhz
I wonder if possibly they included 700 for LTE roaming on AT&T or smaller GSM regional services, may sound crazy LTE roaming but who knows.

Channan says:

Yeah it looks like T-Mobile's One (if unlocked) will run on AT&T's HSPA+ and LTE network.

xBIGREDDx says:

I don't remember for sure, but wasn't part of the failed merger some sort of free roaming deal?

kindaskimpy says:

1. No Sprint 800MHz for LTE is sort of understandable given that they're not even done clearing the 800MHz band of Nextel waves yet but still disappointing that the phone won't be future-proof for it. Very disappointing.

2. The Sprint version will have a WCDMA radio at 700MHz and AWS but not the others? Who uses WCDMA at 700MHz? Just curious, because this obviously for roaming purposes since Sprint's network is not WCDMA (that I know of)

3. I'm assuming the Sprint version of the phone is a world phone and will have the GSM quad-band radio. If it is, that's awesome. I will finally be done having to carry around another phone when I travel!

digmys says:

1. Unless you buy this phone late after its release or keep it for longer than 2 years, you'll likely be eligible for an upgrade before we see 800mhz LTE from Sprint. Deployment is not starting until the current network vision program is complete (every tower in the country upgraded).

bumpandrun says:

So around 2016 at the rate they are going.

wicketr says:

I wonder if Verizon's frequencies are included in the supported ranges. They may have decided to delay the announcement for their carrier (to protect the DNA for the meantime) until sometime later in mid-summer.

Lewis Mayes says:

verizon is not gettin this phone period...

AWS IS JUST TMO'S 1700 CORRECT? I WAS SO USE TO THE NUMBERS OF EACH CARRIES NOW ITS LETTERS NUMBERS WHO KNOWS....HSPA HSPA +? DIFFEENCE? ANY ONE KNOW OF A WEBSITE THAT SHOWS EXACLTY WHAT EACH IS? LIKE IF AWS = 1700 = TMO FAUX 4G.

doomstang says:

Why are you yelling?

movielover76 says:

AWS covers both 1700 and 2100 Mhz, calm down.

turb0wned says:

So all these on the same phone?

Jayshmay says:

T-Mobile has 700 spectrum?

TLB69 says:

I don't want a One but I'll be at Tmo or AT&T just to play with One ;-)

jbern8 says:

This has got to be a typo
WCDMA

Sprint: 700/AWS MHz

WCDMA is a subset of GSM AND sprint does not have 700mhz licenses.

Would any of these radios support Verizon if I get the phone unlocked?
