One X and S headed to all five major carriers; O2 and Three will range the entry-level HTC One V

Android Central

If you're hoping to get your hands on an HTC One series phone in the UK, it looks like you'll be spoiled for choice -- O2, Three, Vodafone, Orange and T-Mobile have all indicated that they'll carry the One X and One S. For the price-conscious, the HTC One V will also be available on O2 and Three. O2 and T-Mobile are listing an April launch date for the One series, while others simply say it's "coming soon."

The One X is HTC's flagship device for 2012, with a quad-core Tegra 3 CPU, a 4.7-inch 720p screen, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and a brand new version of HTC Sense. The One S takes a small step back from the bleeding edge of tech, with its Snapdragon S4 dual-core chip and a 4.3-inch qHD display. Across the entire HTC One range, the manufacturer's delivering Beats Audio support and some fancy new camera technology. In the U.S., AT&T will get an LTE-toting version of the One X with a Snapdragon S4 chip instead of Tegra 3, while T-Mobile USA will range the One S.

In the UK, though, it's a far cry from last year's situation, in which Vodafone had a one-month lead on other networks with the HTC Sensation. Given that all five networks will be vying for our attention with such a highly-anticipated series of phones, the result should be better deals for consumers.

HTC One X and One S will launch on every UK network


4.3 Inch screen is at the limit, any bigger screens are just too big, its why i picked the GS2 over the nexus (yes i know the extra screen size is just the buttons, but its still a bigger phone - my dad and sister have the nexus phones)

I do however want bleeding edge, i already have dual core in my GS2, 1 gig ram, and super amoled plus screen, if am not mistaken the one s has a super amoled, at qhd , which is pentile matrix and thus probs wont look as good as the super amoled in the GS2, so i guess none of these devices will do which is a shame, as i loved the the original desire, and when work said i could have any phone with the value of upto £100 as a work phone, i got the HTC legend (as i lit just use it to make calls)

Id say id wait for the GS3, but i assume that will be like the nexus, 4.7 inch device with no buttons - basically i dont know what phone i want next..

HTC flagship phone are on all UK carriers more often than not.

4.65" screen is my limit unless they remove all front facing buttons and have the screen edge to edge.

Otherwise the phone becomes too big for comfort

How much for the Canon lens in the background?

Personally, being taller than the average, and having huge hands, I can't wait for the bigger screen size, maybe I won't make so many typos in the future.

My experience with the Incredible 2 has been so poor that I'll never consider another HTC phone. I don't care what they come out with, what features it has or what it looks like.

What is the word on US Carriers? Or I should ask more specifically Verizon?? And when, I seem to recal something saying summer-ish.


I'm due for an upgrade on April 3, but could be convinced to wait a bit longer if I knew the One X were coming to VZW. But I don't know how much longer I can handle my Thunderbolt!

I have been due an upgrade since November, I am still rocking the original Droid. Thank god for the roms :)
