AT&T (s t) squelched rumors of a $249 price tag on the HTC One smartphone on Tuesday, announcing the official price of $199.99 with contract. That price is for a model with 32 GB of internal storage, which can’t be expanded with a memory card. For more memory, customers will have to pay $299.99 with contract for the 64 GB model: AT&T says it will be the only U.S. carrier at launch with the higher capacity version.
Pre-orders for both models begin on April 4, with general availability of the phones on April 19. Pre-ordering may make sense if you’re set on owning the HTC One because of a special offer that expires on April 18: AT&T is throwing in a free HTC Media Link HD wireless HDMI adaptor worth $90, so you can wirelessly share content from your phone to your HDTV.
As a reminder for what this year’s HTC One offers over the prior version, the LTE phone runs on a 1.7 GHz quad-core processor and has a 4.7-inch 1080p display. The handset is built with an aluminum unibody design, runs on Android with HTC Sense and has 2 GB of memory. A unique camera sensor with large pixel size is paired with an f/2 28 millimeter lens for capturing low-light images and video.
