HTC is going to announce it officially on 19th June. With the release date being less than a week away, it will be interesting to see it’s pricing as it will be competing with it’s own half brother, the HTC One.
HTC has launched their latest Android flagship device, the HTC One, in India for ₹42,990, which is approximately $789, unlocked. The phone is expected to go on sale towards the end of this month. HTC has tied up with Reliance Communications to offer 1GB of free 3G data for three months to those who purchase the One.
he pricing of the HTC One in India is still fairly high but reasonable compared to some of their previous devices. The HTC Butterfly, for example, was priced at ₹45,990 ($845) at launch and continues to be priced about the same since then. It’s interesting to see the new flagship being priced lower than the existing one, although a price drop for Butterfly before the One hits the shelves cannot be ruled out.
The older One X and One X+, meanwhile, has seen a price drop in India, although the final price will vary by retailer.
Wondering if your HTC One X, One X+, One S or the Butterfly will be getting the new Sense 5 from theHTC One? Well, you don’t have to anymore, as HTC has revealed that it does plan to do so.
Replaying to query on Facebook, HTC clarified that it does intend to update the above mentioned handsets with the new Sense 5 software features from the new HTC One, except for those tied to the hardware. We believe these may be the new camera related features such as Zoe but other than that you can look forward to the refreshed UI and the new HTC BlinkFeed.
As for the availability of the updates, HTC said it would be coming ‘in the next few months’. Note, all the devices mentioned above are the international models. No information has been provided regarding the carrier specific versions of these devices.
