LTE-toting HTC One SV now available SIM-free in the UK

HTC's mid-range 4G LTE phone for Europe and Asia, the One SV, has begun making its way to British shores today, first dropping by online retailer Clove Technology. Clove has the One SV in stock today, and is selling the device unlocked and SIM-free for £350 (approx. $569) in white and blue color options.

In addition those 4G data capabilities, the One SV packs a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 chip, 1GB of RAM and a 4.3-inch WVGA SuperLCD2 display. Around the back, it's packing a 5MP HTC ImageSense camera. Unfortunately it's not running Jelly Bean, and instead comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box.

So the HTC One SV is a mix of high-end and low-range tech, but what you're really paying for here is the ability to pick up an unlocked 4G LTE device without breaking the bank.

The One SV will also be coming to EE, the UK's only LTE carrier, in the near future. Right now, though, there's no mention of the device on EE's site.

  • Good move HTC and judging by their releases recently this would make a sensible 1st device let alone a 1st 4G device, will need to research the frequencies for the LTE radio
  • LTE 800 / 1800 / 2600 (Europe) So supports nearly all 4G LTE networks in Asia and Europe.
  • So officially the One Series has 5 phones, "the One V, the One SV, the One VX, the One S, and the One X. (low to high specs)
  • You might as well wait a bit more longer to see whats coming up at CES and MWC, its too late to release this phone now especially with that price tag.
