AT&T Plans to Start HTC One Pre-sales This Week, 32GB Version Starts at $250

htc one metal

According to a screenshot and other information obtained by Engadget, AT&T is expecting to open up pre-sales for the HTC One this week, potentially on April 5. The 32GB version in both black and white will be available initially for $250 on new 2-year contract, with the exclusive 64GB model joining the party at a later date for $299. There is no official launch date at this time. 

Should you decide to jump in and pre-order from AT&T, there is no telling at this time when you’ll actually receive the device. HTC announced last week that the device has been delayed and will not arrive in the U.S. until some time before the end of April. Their new flagship phone started arriving in the UK last week.

Still no word on a Verizon release or dates for the Sprint and T-Mobile versions.

    Anybody else read “Version” to fast and read “Verizon” and clicked it and then realized that they are an idiot………….well this is embarrasing

  • poeddroiduser

    Interesting, the difference between 32GB and 64GB is $49 but on a Nexus 10 16GB to 32GB is an $100 extra charge…

    April fools!!!

    It’s a pretty phone and I love the stereo speakers on the front. But the two button thing and blinkfeed really kill this phone for me. Once it’s rommed so all three buttons work and blinkfeed is gone, then maybe it will be a contender.

    Also wish they would have gone a little bigger with the battery. 1080p LCD is going to be tough on that battery.

    • chris125

      there is only 2 buttons, it’s been said on xda they can’t do anything with the htc logo….

      • Butters619

        My fault. Last thing I saw on either here or phandroid was that you could.

      1080p isn’t tough on battery life

      • Butters619

        1080p is actually detrimental to the battery life in two ways.

        1) The higher the PPI, the more backlight you need to push through those pixels to retain the same brightness. Say HTC wanted to achieve the same brightness as the One X, it could take as much as 100% more backlight to achieve that.

        2) The more pixels, the more your processor is working to push those pixels. A 1080p display has twice as many pixels ish as a 720p display

    4.1….. Way to be in the Cretaceous period

    • T4rd

      AT&T had HTC downgrade Android and Sense on their version so you get the full US carrier affect on this phone. They will update it to 4.2 when 5.0 debuts so you remain at least one version behind the newest.

      • Austin Warren

        Yeahhhhhhh. April fools.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Also can’t really complain at $250 for 32GB. What do other 32GB devices cost? We usually see $199 for the 16GB

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    We really need release dates for this damn phone

    • T4rd

      You really need to post more comments on this page. =p

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Sprint 32GB Verison will start at $199 accoording to that Radio Shack (The Shack) leaked ad. Why does ATT feel the need to jack the price…….Either way I’m pretty surprised the 64GB will start at $300. Was really expecting at least $350. I’ll be all over the 64GB. Not sure if I want Silver or Black yet though.

  • Dylan Patel

    32GB Version Starts at $250 this is in you’re title, but not in the post. What is it about? How do you know?

    • Joey

      Post: “on April 5. The 32GB version in both black and white will be available initially for $250″

      • Dylan Patel

        On verizon? though where does it say that.

        • Joey

          No where, does and always has said AT&T. They said they had no word yet of a Verizon date.

          • Dylan Patel

            Says on Verizon it starts at 250, where did he get that information….

          • Joey

            That’s “VERSION”. As in version 2.0. Not Verizon.

  • triangle8

    Wow $250? AT&T, WTF?

    • http://www.droid-life.com Kellex B

      Matches up to their Galaxy S4 pre-orders, which also start at $250.

      • T4rd

        Yeah, but the GS4 is obviously a better phone.

        /troll =p

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        Galaxy S4 entry Level is 16GB no? . . . This is 32GB it doesn’t really match up.

        • Austin Warren

          It has an SD slot.

          • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

            What? What does that have to do with the cost of internal storage?

          • Austin Warren

            You said it doesn’t match up. It does when you can upgrade to double the space for $20

          • Stevedub40

            And a noise cancelling mic. Oh wait, that’s the iphone :P

        • Anus Jones

          And since 16gb of flash memory costs $10 retail… Wait, what?

        • RaptorOO7

          No one knows yet what the entry level GS4 is on AT&T since they didn’t state what it is. It could be 16GB or it could be a 32GB, knowing AT&T its 16GB but the jury is still out.
