HTC’s blue-coloured HTC One is now available in the UK as a retailer exclusive with Carphone Warehouse. A blue edition of the HTC One Mini is also on the way and is now up for pre-registration.
The blue HTC One is going from £32 per month on contract with the handset thrown in for free, with network options including EE, Vodafone, Orange, O2, Three, T-Mobile and Talkmobile. A SIM-free handset will cost you £490.
The identically coloured and styled, yet slightly smaller HTC One Mini is up for pre-registration and is expected to go on sale during October. You can register to be notified when it goes on sale, there’s currently no info on pricing but as the regular HTC One in blue has the same price as its black and silver counterparts there’s no reason the same shouldn’t apply to the HTC One Mini. The black and silver HTC One Mini starts on contract from £17 per month or £380 SIM-free.
To recap on specs, the HTC One features a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor clocked at 1.7GHz with 2GB of RAM and an Adreno 320 graphics processing unit (GPU).
