I highly doubt they would only have 8 and 16.. its 2013..and a flagship. I
m still banking on the 32gb with sprint

Yeah,I think the source of the 8GB & 16GB varieties (POCKET LINT),was thinking of the NEXUS 4 when he put that in the article.However,there were earlier reports of 8 OR 16 GB (can't remember) versions for a couple of select Asian markets. I seriously don't think we'll be seeing any of those outside of that region,if they do indeed ever exist.

Those with a 3vo will recall that came with 4 GB of storage, just for os, phone and apps, only 1 GB for apps. The One X doubled that, and 6 GB was reserved.

I don't know where this 8 number is coming from. Does anyone believe that they're even going to try building a phone with only 2 GB of additional user storage? I sure don't. Unless it's going to magically going to get an sd card.

I am fine with 32gb, still hoping it's coming to Verizon.
Does this mean Europe and more importantly us in the UK will not be getting the 64GB. Is it only for America? If this is true, i'll be gutted! I've been waiting patiently for news on 64GB being released in the UK!

This exclusivity nonsense will be the downfall for htc. People won't switch carriers for an HTC phone, they would rather settle for another device. Bad move by HTC. Should get every model on every carrier possible.

Was Sprint offered the 64 GB model? Did Sprint turn them down?

AT&T was not the first US carrier to announce that they'd be offering the phone.

At each carrier's announcement, they'd already made their deals and placed their orders.

I'm not happy about this. But I don't believe that the cause is HTC not wanting to push more high-end product. Just saying.

Those choosing to not carry the 64GB version may have taken their cue from this retailer across the pond & avoid the risk of having stock that doesn't move fast enough to warrant having it on inventory:

Maybe.

What's the demand for a 64 GB phone that can take a 64 GB sd card?

Hard to say.Some will want it for one reason or another,regardless of the extra $,whether they actually need it or not.

I have to admit I was one of those that weren't too happy w/the latest rumblings regarding storage capacity,but the truth is that I have a 16GB phone w/an additional 64GB via external SD slot & barely put a dent in either,w/about 95% unused.

Should my carrier offer a higher capacity after I purchase a 32GB model,so be it.Shame on me if I get miffed over it,regardless of circumstance or specs,the next best thing is gonna be right around the corner anyway.

Yeah I'm in the same boat. I had 32GB on my Nexus and it was almost full, but that was because of ROMs and nand backups. Since I am running stock on my DNA, with only 16GB, I still have 8GB free

Yep, I have about 12GB devoted to ROMs and nandroids, another 12 G to music and audio books, and still have 8-10 free, depending on how good I've been with housekeeping.... Good to see that the 8-16 G rumor seems to be just that, and no substance.

Really not anything new, except to solidify pricing suspicions and/or intensify the S4 vs One debate for some.

And this deal may be attractive to some:

Well it looks like the 32gb will be $250 on AT&T, so might not make a big difference in pricing after all.

AT&T to begin HTC One pre-sales this week, starting with 32GB for $250

Wow... I wonder if AT&T is pricing the 32G model that way due to the exclusive they got with the 64G, or if 250 will be the new 200 across the "big 3?" I can't see that, myself, but then again, I bought a Pre!

You never know, it looked like the $299 might be the new standard for awhile, then the prices went back down.

$200 has been the Sprint price on contract for each of the top Evos since 2010, as I recall their One X variant was cheaper last year compared to other carriers as well. I've seen them go for more on day one at Sprint stores, but always some deal at Best Buy or Radio Shack. Street price of two hundred on Sprint at launch makes perfect sense.

Recall when we first started this, we expected $250/$300 for 32/64 GB.

The in-store promotional materials, first seen at Phandroid, reveal that the HTC One will be sold for $199.99 with a new two-year agreement — at least on Sprint. As always, reseller pricing can differ from a carrier's MSRP, but this is pretty much where we expect to see the price point land.

Things like this I have trouble understanding.
Why is it so hard for manufacturers to release their phones across multiple carriers under it's released name?
(Please..... not turning this into Apple vs Android).
Across all carriers the iPhone is the iPhone in the US & other parts of the world.
Yet instead of the HTC One being just that on all carriers one of them has to call it something else.
What does that do for the HTC One brand?
How can HTC make a comeback while being stifled by a particular carrier?
Sprint also did this with one of the Evos.

The iPhone released as an ATT exclusive when half the industry was laughing at dumb Apple taking on the Blackberry and Windows phone. ATT execs bragged about how they got the great end of the contract deal.

Same kind of laughter from the iPod days and the launch of the iTunes Music Store, that changed our approach to buying music online.

Many of us then correctly predicted the iPhone future - ATT struggling to break the contract and take control and failing - and other carriers scrambling to pick up the brand.

Not because they wanted the iPhone, but because they wanted ATT's iPhone business.

No one ever beat Steve Jobs at contracting and his control model continued and grew.

Meanwhile, all of the other makers had been making phones longer and were used to contracted carrier deals, with model and name variations.

Momentum.

The mighty giant Samsung didn't break free until last year. Before that, the Sprint SGS2 was called the Epic 4G Touch or something and it had a keyboard.

You still can't buy a Motorola RAZR Maxx in the USA, you get the Verizon Droid RAZR Maxx.

The press loves to beat up on HTC.

Much of the press harbors a weird, creepy iPhone envy though.

Motorola was going under. Google bought them. Find one story about how their goofy naming has to stop.

You can't. You can find many stories about how they can't wait to hear what the Motorola X is going to be called.

Right next to stories slamming HTC for practices common to the others.

And anyone who thinks that there was only one SGS3 had better check their facts - or our forums.

Earlymon.. reasons like this is why I love this forum as opposed to android central.

Here it is facts and articles and information and I would say mostly objective posting, as to there it is all fanboy banter with a few dabbings of information that is overlooked by the fanboy drivel.

I got my undergrad in Biology, so I am forever researching everything and attempt to look at everything with an unbiased opinion (though I love HTC since the Hero..though my hero bricked due to an OS update but luckily my EVO saved the day).

Everyone here is top notch when it comes to discussion and debate

Default US Prices, what's the deal?

So, T-mobile announces $99 down, 20/mo for the One, no contract. Keep service with them or just pay off the phone. Sounds good. No activation fee, unlimited everything, tethering included. No LTE in L.A.

AT&T is to announce $250 for the One with a 2 yr contract. Plus activation fee, even for me as an existing customer, grandfathered into Unlimited, tethering is an add'l fee. Does have LTE in L.A.

I know that no contract and "paying off" the phone with no interest is almost the same as being in a contract, but I LOATHE contracts.

My iphone 4s is HSPA+, so I'm used to it. Hopefully LTE rolls out in L.A. soon.

I'm seeing the TMO deal as a better offer. I have to actually get a side-by-side of numbers to see what the end-cost will be though.

Beat me to it. So it is settled... no 64gb and they aren't giving anything away. I have to say , for myself I don't care I am sticking with Sprint, but they are going to have to come up with SOMETHING to compete with AT&T and T-Mobile for a lot of people.

Well AT&T said it is exclusive for release.. I am guessing that means in a few months everyone will have it

Probably deciding on which bloatware to omit from their version,being that they'll likely have only 32GB to work with.......

Just sent an e-mail to the point-of-contact in the press release,regarding future availability of the ONE in a 64GB variety.

Sprint Newsroom | Sprint to Launch the New HTC One on April 19; Pre-Order Begins April 5

Hoping for a response before sign-up on 4/5/13.Probably nothing more than a definite maybe to look forward to,but,gotta start somewhere.....

Most likely, and where they are going to put their logo.

Perhaps, but I am starting to think this 64GB exclusive factored into Verizon's decision to hold off on releasing the phone. I honestly don't see the point is Sprint releasing a 64gb version of this phone a few months from now. I mean I guess some will wait and some don't have upgrades available right now but it just all around stinks. 32gb will be enough for me but I see people jumping ship.

Well all in all, I think the average consumer will see the 300 dollar price point and the 64gb of storage and really wonder if they will actually even get close to that amount needed for another 100 dollars. I sure as heck have no idea how I am going to even touch 32gb, even after the storage space used up by bloatware and other sprint additions.

I tend to agree with you but on the other side of that, people generally just think they need as much space as possible without thinking what they will actually do with that amount of space. I hate keeping music and movies on my phone so the 32 GB is more than enough for me; I really only keep pictures, apps, and contacts on my phone with a few saved emails. Everything else is out in the cloud somewhere or hosted on my PC at home and then streamed via PlayOn.

But without SD expansion it's important to provide enough, or else that one detail can exclude a phone for some customers.

The 32GB phone will give < 26 GB space available to the user. I'm currently using more than that on my SD card, and nandroids on this thing will be a lot larger. So I just don't want to have the hassle of managing storage and shuffling stuff between the phone and other devices (cloud storage and streaming don't interest me, and won't be available all of the time I'd want them). Hence for me the 64GB is what I require.

It's the benefit of giving people choices.

I wasn't implying that 32 GB was enough space for everybody but for the regular users it probably is. Here in the States we were not really given the benefit of a choice; For whatever reason, whether AT&T used their muscle to get an exclusive or the smaller carriers just didn't think they would sell the 64gb version or maybe HTC wanted a bigger order of 64GB units than they would commit to, our choices here are to get the 32GB version on T-Mobile or Sprint OR get the 32GB or 64GB on AT&T.

Gents, I think your points are well made regarding the memory with the HTC One on Sprint and other carriers.

At this stage sprint is on record saying they are shipping 32gb units on their launch day.

Let's move on from that part of the discussion as its getting off topic.

Any users here from Los Angeles that are on TMO? I was last with them on my OG Motorola KRZR, so I don't have smartphone experience with them. Really tempted to do the ONE on TMO, but any real life experience from current users would be great.

Can't help but keep checking the Handtec site every 20 mins to see if they have updated to confirm they have their shipment in today...

Think I'm obsessed. :P

Default China - HTC One (not global version)

Comes with microSD card slot and removeable back cover!

Chinese HTC One 802w has microSD card slot, two SIMs - GSMArena.com news

Why does the rest of the world miss out except the Chinese market? Ridiculous!

What do you reckon has been removed to make space for the plastic frame under the back cover, two SIM slots and SD reader? Note that while the back cover is removable, the battery isn't (though it will doubtless be much easier to open to do your own warranty-voiding repairs or replacements).

I've not been able to find any specs on this variant so far, so can't say whether they've e.g. shrunk the battery to make space.

I'm just galled that they chose to do this. The Chinese and other Asia/Pacific territories often tend to get some very specialised model numbers usually to cater to specific requirements in the territory. But like i said why does everyone else miss out?

If anyone is interested in off-contract pricing for the SPRINT HTC ONE,look to pay
$549.99 directly from SPRINT.Not bad, considering what BEST BUY has it listed for. ($699.99)

BEST BUY could still be the better deal,if you're willing to utilize their trade-in/buy back program.

With regards to the availability of the 64GB HTC One in the UK i asked Clove UK and this was their response. Not good news.

Quote:
The stock that we will be selling currently is the 32GB model. We have expressed our intent with HTC to purchase 64GB models (price and demand dependant). However HTC’s main focus is the 32GB and the current supply issues have a knock on effect to the 64GB models. Currently TC has pushed back launch of the HTC One globally due to component issues and the worldwide launch will take precedent over the 64GB models. At this time we can not say when 64GB units will be available.
Here's another reply to someone else who asked the same thing:

Quote:
We don’t have any news on the 64GB models yet, HTC are only providing the 32GB version SIM free in the UK right now. I would hazard a guess that if the 64GB shows itself, it will likely be exclusive to a UK network for some time before being made SIM free.
Looks like we may not get it until the summer judging by that comment. With no expandable storage, it's either 64GB HTC One sim-free or nothing at all. Looks like it's no new phone for me.

Just wondering, did anyone here order their One from Handtec? If so have you had your's shipped yet, they are saying they have shipped their 1st shipment on their site but I haven't had a shipping notification or anything. I'm guessing ordering on the 20th March was too late for the 1st batch...

One guy over at XDA reported getting a tracking number today - phone ordered March 4th.

TBH the XDA handtec thread is really only recommended reading for masochists - it's mostly a few people squabbling with each other
