HTC will fix your broken screen for free (but only in the U.S. for now). The Taiwanese manufacturer is also going to launch its next flagship on March 25.
After launching the KitKat update for the HTC One ahead of schedule in the U.S., HTC is continuing to dole out good news to U.S. customers. The latest initiative by HTC, titled the Advantage Program, sees the manufacturer fixing customers’ broken screens for free. The program is valid for devices in the 2013 One series, which include the One, One mini and One max (not the One X, One S and One V). If you crack the screen on any of these device within six months of purchase, HTC will fix it for you gratis. However, the deal is valid only for users who buy the eligible devices today or after. Existing customers will not be able to avail the offer.
In addition, HTC is offering 25 to 50 GB of Google Drive storage for two years, based on the device you buy. The Taiwanese manufacturer has also stated that it will continue to deliver timely Android updates for 24 months after the device is launched.
Furthermore, the Taiwanese manufacturer has sent out invites for an event on the 25th of March in two locations: New York and London. The event will likely be for the launch of HTC’s next flagship, the M8. The latest M8 leak showcased the alleged press render of the device in a case. The device is said to feature on-screen navigation buttons, high-end hardware and a new design.
