HTC says flagship HTC One smartphone will launch in U.S. by end of April

HTC One Release Date

HTC (2498) confirmed on Friday that its flagship HTC One smartphone will launch in the U.K., Germany and Taiwan beginning next week. More extensive launches across Europe, North America and the Asia-Pacific region will follow by the end of April. HTC said in a statement that it has seen “unprecedented demand” for its new flagship Android phone, which was delayed due to problems the company has had sourcing certain components. BGR previewed the HTC One last month and said in terms of hardware, it is one of the best smartphones ever built. HTC will see fierce competition from the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S 4 however, and Apple (AAPL) is expected to unveil multiple new iPhone models this summer. HTC’s full statement follows below.

HTC has seen unprecedented demand for and interest in the new HTC One, and the care taken to design and build it is evidenced in early reviews. The new HTC One will roll out in the UK, Germany and Taiwan next week and across Europe, North America and most of Asia-Pacific before the end of April. We appreciate our customers’ patience, and believe that once they have the phone in their hands they will agree that it has been worth the wait.
