HTC One to launch in UK this week

HTC has announced its latest mobile device will be launched in three countries this week, following delays caused by excessive demand.

The long-awaited HTC One smartphone is set to be rolled out in the UK, Germany and Taiwan in the coming days, but sales will not kick off before the end of April across Europe, North America and the Asia-Pacific region.

According to a statement released by the phone manufacturer, it has experienced “unprecedented” interest in its flagship handset and the care taken to design and built it is evidenced in early reviews. “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,” it added. This is after the device was supposed to hit shelves on March 15th.

The mobile – which was announced by the Taiwanese firm in February – boasts a 4.7-inch full high definition display and is powered by a 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, while it also comes with 2GB of random access memory and a 2,300 mAh battery.
