UPDATE: I’ve gotten a couple more details on T-Mobile’s HTC 10 launch plans. T-Mo will offer the HTC 10 in Glacier Silver, and JUMP! On Demand pricing will be set at $0 down and $28.50 per month.
T-Mobile has been pretty quiet about the HTC 10 ever since HTC’s new Android flagship was announced one month ago, but today T-Mo is finally breaking its silence.
The HTC 10 will launch at T-Mobile on May 18 at a price of $0 down and 24 payments of $28.34, or a full retail price of $679.99. T-Mo is also offering a free HTC Rapid Charger and HTC Ice View Case to anyone that buys the HTC 10 between May 18 and May 24.
The HTC Ice View Case lets you do things like quickly take photos, read texts, adjust volume, and more without lifting the cover of the case. It also supports third-party notifications from the likes of Instagram, Tumblr, and Google+. Meanwhile, the HTC Rapid Charger does exactly what its name suggests, charging the HTC 10 faster than the standard charger. The combined value of these two accessories is $85.
As a refresher, the HTC 10 features a 5.2-inch 2560×1440 Super LCD 5 display and a 5-megapixel camera with OIS on its face, and around back lives a 12-megapixel UltraPixel camera with OIS, laser autofocus, and a dual LED flash. Inside the HTC 10’s metal body lives a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage (expandable with a microSD card), and a 3000mAh battery. Also of note is the HTC 10’s new BoomSound configuration, which ditches the dual front-facing speakers found on past HTC flagships and instead uses a tweeter in its earpiece and a woofer at the bottom of the phone.
So now that we finally know when the HTC 10 will be hitting T-Mobile’s shelves, will you be picking one up?
