HTC 10 release date: where can I get it?
It’s official – HTC has a new phone in the form of the HTC 10. The One and M monikers are both dead in the water and it’s a brand new world for the Taiwanese company.
The phone comes with a top end spec and a gorgeous new metal design that is set to excite Android fans the world over. But how do you get your grubby mitts on one?
That’s the question we’ve been asking all the UK’s major phone networks and retailers to see where you can get it and here’s what we’ve learnt so far.
Information is quite sparse at the moment, but expect more details in the coming weeks and we’ll keep this updated from there.
HTC 10 price
What isn’t certain is how much the HTC 10 is going to cost. The new flagship phone is set to be launched at a high price as the One M9 launched for £580 SIM-Free. We’d expect something similar this time.
If you can’t pay that upfront, we can expect a number of deals from the networks to make it a little bit more affordable month-to-month. Read below for everything we know so far.
The UK’s largest high-street retailer has now confirmed it will be stocking the HTC 10 when it launches. Pre-orders begin on Wednesday 13 April when the retailer will also share pricing details.
Carphone Warehouse will have it ready to go on the ID network as well as exclusively stocking the gold version of the phone.
EE has confirmed it will be stocking the HTC 10, but there’s no word on pricing or availability yet.
Three is also stocking the HTC 10 but again there’s no pricing news just yet.
Vodafone has confirmed to techradar it won’t be stocking the HTC 10 at this time. A statement from the network reads, “We are constantly reviewing our device portfolio but there are no current plans to range the HTC 10” suggesting it may come to the network eventually.
O2 has yet to share whether it will be stocking the HTC 10. We’ll update here once we know more from the bubbly network.
We’ve spoken to Tesco Mobile, Mobiles.co.uk, Unlocked Mobiles, Giff Gaff and a number of other networks and retailers but it’s all a bit quiet right now. We’ll update here once we know more.
