(Updated) Rumored HTC One/M7 Pricing, US Carrier Availability Details Leak Out

BC0-LdSCUAELIpm.jpg-large

Update: According to an update from HTC Sourcethe M7/One will land on T-Mobile LTE ready. A logical conclusion really given T-Mobile’s desire to launch LTE handsets that will provide users immediate access to the network once it launches in their area.

Oh how we love news of a new smartphone coming to T-Mobile and the HTC M7/One (codename: M7, launch name: One?) would be a beautiful addition to T-Mobile’s Spring lineup. Well, good news as HTCSource is at it again with another tipster revealing the alleged price, internal memory size and pricing. The source “confirms” that the HTC M7/One will launch on AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile with 32GB of internal storage starting at $199 with a two-year agreement. According to their intel, a 64GB model will be available for $299 as well, though there is no confirmation the carriers will pick up the larger size. Rumors also indicate the device will come in both black and silver/white color schemes.

HTC’s expected to announce the M7/One flagship smartphone next Tuesday at a special dual event in both New York and London. Fingers crossed they’ll make pricing and carrier announcements before the event is over — HTC needs a big win with the M7/One and anything that resembles “carrier announcements will arrive in the coming weeks” is everything we don’t want to see.

    I will pass.. no more Sense crapola or T-Mobile crapware. I will wait for the Nexus 5.

    • Josue

      Iknow right sense makes the phone so sloooow stock android would be fine for once

    • lynyrd65

      I prefer Motorola X.

  • http://twitter.com/m0h3gansun Nats

    crossing fingers hoping that microsd slot will be available

    • corona10

      No s/d card. it will come with 32gb storage.

    • the2000guy

      32GB and Probably 64GB are the rumors. I hope it is true.

  • HTConeS

    I wish there was a picture of the back… and by the way where is the “menu” or “recent apps” button?

    • Joseph Lagalla

      the pic is a fake, just look at the sneak peaks of the device that htc has given so far. The speaker grill that has been shown isn’t even remotely close. And there is a glimpse of the back of the device as well. I think it’ll take a lot of its design cues from the DNA/Butterfly.

      • corona10

        I was thinking that too. Because those speaker grills on the top and bottom look like that leaked fake one from a couple weeks ago. I was hoping that it wouldnt look like this. I’m still hoping.

    • Herb

      Previous pictures/mock-ups have shown the “Recent Apps” button in the center where this picture has the HTC logo. I would hope they don’t leave the logo there, but if they do I would guess it would serve as the “Recent Apps” button. But I hate that they put the buttons out of order. Home should be in the center.

  • Allen Wang

    are you sure about this??….or like the previous ONE X and ONE X+ it’ll only go to AT&T and T-Mobile is left with nothing =(

    • corona10

      Its been reported that it will be coming to all carriers with Verizon being a possible hold out for longer since they already have the Droid DNA. And it would be stealling some of its thunder if they started selling the One a couple months after they released the DNA

  • TMoFan

    Still an HTC fan judging by the pic the build quality looks nice. I’d like to see what the back looks like and I know it’s wishful thinking but it would be nice to see at least microSD. At least the min is 32GB.

  • S. Ali

    How is this even news? All contract phones are $199. This may be the dumbest way to link bait I have ever seen.

  • http://twitter.com/m0h3gansun Nats

    this wouldn’t be available with value plans right?

    • techymexican

      Well when it’s released classic plans will no longer exist. So it’ll obviously be available.

      • http://twitter.com/m0h3gansun Nats

        nice!

  • Nick Cannon

    So how much will the Tmo version be since there won’t be subsidies?

    • http://about.me/daylondeon Deacon

      it’ll be the same. Value plans won’t change the fact that you can get the phone for $200 (maybe a few dollars more give or take depending on phone) .. you’ll just have to get an extra $20 added to your bill.

  • Nick

    $100 for an extra 32 gb of memory? Glad HTC is getting a clue about what people want but $100 is crazy, albeit fairly standard.

    • g2a5b0e

      Fairly standard, maybe, but Samsung only charged $50 extra for the next step up in memory with the SIII.

      EDIT: You know what? I take that back. More like fairly standard for Apple. At least Motorola also gave you a bigger battery in addition to the extra memory for your $100.

    • nickmgray

      $199 gets you 32GB and $299 gets you 64. If you were buying an iPhone, you’re only get 16GB for $199 and 32GB for $299. Anyone wanting 64GB would have to shell out $399.

      • tonkotsu

        htc isn’t apple

        when htc guarantees me that i’ll get every update until its not feasible, has one of the best cameras on mobile devices, and has universal support worldwide. then i’ll gladly pay apple prices, but for now? no, htc isn’t close, and shouldn’t be able to charge a premium.

        • g2a5b0e

          ^^^This.

  • Bud

    i love the blue tt on the home screen. i miss my tt,

  • g2a5b0e

    Wow. It will come in black & silver/white color schemes & they’re planning on charging a full $100 more for the next step up in memory. Add that to the fact they’ve stopped putting removable batteries & micro SD slots in their flagships & I’d be hard pressed to tell the difference between them & a certain company from Cupertino. Keep up the great work, HTC. Chapter 11 is on the horizon.

    EDIT: Also, don’t forget the obvious physical cues this phone takes from a certain phone starting with i & ending with 5. I’ve lost so much respect for HTC over the last year. :-(

    • the2000guy

      You dont need to remove your battery to restore your phone in case of issues. Also I heard that the One S lasts more than the sensation 4G. I think tha most of the issues of the One S was the battery and of course the OS that should be first tweak to work very well, Look at the rooted phones using the same OS but with tweaks, they lasts so much. And I am an HTC fan but hasnt own one since the sensation because I wanted the One X or the X+.

      • g2a5b0e

        I have no idea why you replied to my post with this. It doesn’t seem to have much to do with anything I said.

  • GinaDee

    Looks like a really big iPhone 5. Really HTC?

    • techpro1993

      Pay attention ok. There is nothing like iPhone but white color. Did apple own patent on white color now?

      • http://www.antmontana.com/ ant

        if anything i wouldve said windows (even thou they started out making windows phones before they did android) but sense have a windows look

    • Stars44

      +1 here.

    • the2000guy

      What is the problem with that?? They dont work together and as far as I know they should have a design of this model before the iphone 5 showed up or they will be in legal problems with APPLE.

      • Timbo1

        the way apple has been lately they sue anyone with a rectangle and rounded corners and touch screen

  • http://twitter.com/fightcrazy Vinny

    This will not be a slow phone. The new sense is nothing like the old sense where it just kills the speed of the phone. With the big bump in specs along with the much improved lighter version of sense this phone will fly. I’m just hoping that T-Mobile is smart enough to jump on the larger internal memory of 64mb to give the T-Mobile customers the extra bang. To me that is one of the most over looked specs in todays modern phone.

    • Chris

      Still talking about lag on android? I haven’t experienced lag since before the Galaxy S 2…Even my G2 was reasonably lag free.

      • s10shane

        now i know your lying. i have the htc g2 as a back up phone and it lags a lot on gingerbread. when scrolling through home screens you notice it right away. also when i had the s2 (t-mobile version) it lagged a bit as well. of coarse i am talking about both phones being completely stock.

        • random randy

          at&t gs2 is pretty lag free

      • NinoBr0wn

        Well I don’t know what your current phone is or what you consider lag, but anything out right now, especially running 4.1 or higher, clearly exposes lag on earlier devices.

      • tonkotsu

        anything pre-JB was “laggy” even if it baaaarely stuttered

        JB brought 60fps and vsync to android, and THAT is what makes it not laggy

  • John Taylor

    I’m crazy waiting for them to release Jellybean for HTC One S… It’s been over 6 months since JB release, cmonnnnnnnn.

    ….

    • NinoBr0wn

      The One S doesn’t have jelly bean already?

  • http://twitter.com/m0h3gansun Nats

    do people just renew contracts to get the 199 or can they just buy full retail price?

    • NinoBr0wn

      It’s your choice, but you usually can’t renew your contact unless you’re within a certain window.

    • rfgenerator

      I’d be really surprised if it is $199 subsidized. T-Mobile in an effort to prod people to the “Value” plans has been steadily jacking up the subsidized prices of smartphones, especially at launch. I’d be expecting $329 +$50 rebate. The Value customers will probably be $199 out the door, but will be paying $20 a month or 20 months bringing it up to the usual BS MSRP of $600.

  • NYCTheBronx

    Great to hear about the HTC M7/One being revealed next week. Is HTC responsible for why my G1, My Touch 3G Slide and My Touch 4G Slide haven’t even got a firmware update? Jelly bean would be nice.

  • Paul

    It looks slick.
    Things I’m concerned about when buying HTC:
    - expandable memory?
    - can I ditch sense?
    - battery life? (with every phone)

    • impasse

      1. looking like nope, unfortunately
      2. i just use golauncher ex, the rest is meh, i can live with it. for the stock lock screen you can turn on pattern lock
      3. probably about the same as the droid dna, or any other 1080p phone with a 1.5ghz+ cpu

      • Paul

        You’re probably right, only I hope they are aware that consumers WANT expandable memory.
        Also, someone said the new sense isn’t hogging resources.

        • bleeew

          I have a DNA. Its really smooth and battery is as long as the iPhone 4S. My phone is fast even on Sense Launcher.

  • sushimane

    i think i might get this but that note 2 and the nexus 4 are pretty high on my list.

  • ShoeVixen

    Cant wait…. Been waiting to upgrade and I think this is the One…lol

  • Whitney

    David has there been any news on the iphone yet?

    • NYCTheBronx

      LTE Advanced is just around the corner. Maybe T-Mobile might release it the same time but as a surprise. Only time will tell. My guesses are maybe Q1 or Q2 for the IPhone release.

    • http://tmonews.com David

      Not yet, I’ll post when there is!

  • http://www.antmontana.com/ ant

    i dont care i want this phone and a 64gb or 32 gb no sd card needed esp you get cloud storage as well now get rid of beats audio and get skullcandy audio

    • NYCTheBronx

      Skull Candy? I second that.

      • http://www.antmontana.com/ ant

        i didnt say they better but why have a beats audio when you have to pay 300 for beats like thats kinda stupid skullcandys loud with bass (nice sound) for 30-200 like its what it is but i dont like it

    • the2000guy

      You have to buy the beats audio headphones to enjoy smooth audio even having the beats audio system in the Phone?

      • http://www.antmontana.com/ ant

        If u asking yea it’s a feature that enabled with beats it’s basically a gimmick

  • Jason Crumbley

    I would seriously consider the 64GB one. I’m sitting on an upgrade now. I’ve been leaning towards the Note II, but may have to wait.

  • Kahlayoh

    I got an email from HTC of a countdown. Didn’t explain what it was a countdown to, just had the countdown. Maybe it was for this!!!

    • http://tmonews.com David

      It’s absolutely for this.

      • NYCTheBronx

        I hear Motorola is going to be releasing a flagship phone this year where you can supposably change to any ui. Got any news on Motorola, David?

  • Richard Yarrell

    I am just happy for Tmobile customers they really needed this device more than Verizon, At@t, and Sprint. Personally if i was buying i would jump all over that 64gb version. In today’s tech game people are already use paying 300 plus dollars for a handset especially if you are or were a Verizon customer. My Galaxy Nexus cost 300 easily and my Galaxy Note 2 was up there too here on tmobile. If I had to settle for the 32gb version cause the 64gb wasn’t available then I would pick up that 32gb internal version and be happy. I will definitely be in my favorite tmobile store in Manhattan day one of the launch of device just to check it out.

  • D Velasquez

    i pass, im happy with my SH-01D

  • http://twitter.com/fightcrazy Vinny

    I hope T-Mobile gets both the 32 and 64 gb internal memory versions. AT&T only had 16gb version of the SGS3 and in my opinion the internal memory is one of the most important features in todays smart phones. The more memory the better.

  • ziggy123

    This makes the 8gb Nexus 4 look like a total insult.

    • http://twitter.com/m0h3gansun Nats

      thats cuz the dimwits who bought it got bamboozled…wait for nexus 5

  • http://www.jmillionnyc.com/ Jason Million

    ill be there on tuesday. cant wait. hope its good.

  • TyRetr0

    It’s beautiful it looks like a windows phone

  • TyRetr0

    I like how this sense looks

  • wilde_ride

    I don’t care anymore. I’ve been a big HTC fan in the past, but I won’t even consider this phone. I’m tired of waiting on the promised upgrade for my One S. if HTC can’t support it’s customers, this customer is done giving them his money.

  • Deff

    Am I the only one who actually likes Sense UI?

  • BRNSMRF

    Still no Jelly Bean on T-Mobile’s HTC One S. HTC won’t get my money again
