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

HTC One: The U.S. radio frequencies

24 Comments

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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!

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).

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.

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.

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.
