HTC’s One series is inching closer, though it seems like it’s a lot closer for those across the pond. Customers of British telcos Vodafone and Three can now reserve their very own HTC One X or One S. Both companies are now taking pre-orders for both phones, so whether you want the crazy-powerful One X or the svelte One S, you’re covered. Three says that the HTC devices will be available next Wednesday, April 4th, but Vodafone is somewhat mum – we’d expect the phones to be available on both carriers at the same time.
If you don’t know about the HTC One series by now, you need to find lodgings somewhere besides Bedrock. The One X is the daddy of the line, with a massive 4.7-inch 720p screen and a NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor. The One S is a little smaller with a 4.3-inch qHD screen and a Snapdragon S4 processor, but it makes up for it with a Super AMOLED display and a super-skinny body. Both phones get a unibody aluminum frame, Beats Audio, 8 megapixel cameras with impressive f/2.0 lenses, and Ice Cream Sandwich with HTC’s Sense UI 4.0.
Three is offering both phones on a variety of plans, from £24-38 a month subsidized. Vodafone is offering the One X from £41 and the One V from £36, but both phones get a free pair of urBeats headphones when pre-ordered. The HTC One X is headed to the States on AT&T (minus the Tegra 3 processor for LTE connections) and T-Mobile gets the One S, but neither company has been forthcoming with an exact date. The smallest phone in the One line, the One V, will launch on a few regional US carriers.
