HTC One price drops to $50 with AT&T and Sprint contracts, Verizon version gets FCC approval
Big news for Android enthusiasts that dig a certain aluminum-made phone with 4.7-inch Full HD screen, Boom Sound technology, Snapdragon 600 power and UltraPixel camera, but are yet to put their money where their mouth is.
HTC One’s price has been savagely slashed with AT&T and Sprint contracts, while the oft-rumored Verizon release seems like a matter of days. Finally.
If you’re fed up with waiting for Big Red to complete the endless “testing process” of the One, Amazon should be your go-to online retailer. It is there that you shall find the mighty 4.7-incher at an irresistible price tag of $49.99, naturally valid only with two-year AT&T or Sprint contracts.
I know, the idea of committing to one carrier for a full 24 months might be appalling for some, but come on, can you really turn down the chance to pay 50 bucks for this beauty? Remember, AT&T and Sprint are charging a whopping $200 each for the HTC One via their online stores.
Plus, if you get the phone from Amazon, HTC throws an extra $25 in Google Play credit to make the deal even harder to refuse. Be warned though that there is a downside, namely the special offer will expire on July 15, which is just five days from now.
Meanwhile, if you’re still willing to wait it out for Verizon, that particular flavor of the One has paid FCC a quick visit mere hours ago. I think I don’t have to tell you what that means… again, but if you have any doubts about this being Big Red-bound, be sure to browse through FCC’s internal certification docs and you’ll find sufficient proof.
For instance, there’s CDMA and LTE support mentioned more than once, plus even the device’s model number carries a not very subtle hint as to the network that it’s destined for – HTC65000LVW, where VW doesn’t stand for Volkswagen.
