HTC has offered little in the way of pricing info or launch dates for its new One series. However, pre-order listings by a number of UK retailers present some clues as to when you'll be able to get your hands on the One X and One S, and for how much. Several online stores, including Amazon, Clove and Expansys are listing HTC's new flagship phone for release on April 5, with a £490-500 price tag. Meanwhile the One S, HTC's slightly less high-end, high-end phone is placed around £440-450 by Amazon and Clove, with the same purported release date of April 5.
The April 5 date matches what's been reported by O2 UK and others in the past week, and the price tags shouldn't surprise anyone -- that's what cutting edge phones cost in the UK. (Though we're relieved to see that the One X isn't pushing into silly money territory with prices above £500.)
Network-subsidized deals will likely knock these SIM-free prices down to more affordable levels anyway. The One X and One S are to be carried by every major UK network, so we'd expect to see some competitive offers.
In the U.S., the One X will launch on AT&T, while T-Mobile will get the One S. However there's still no word on exactly when these phones are due to cross the Atlantic.
