All New HTC One set for March 25 release in the UK


It’s no big surprise that the All New HTC One is scheduled to be shown off on March 25th. Generally the company comes out on stage, shows off the device along with all its features, then we get a “release” date that’s anywhere from a few weeks to a month away. Turns out, that’s not going to be the case with the All New HTC One.

If you live in the UK, you’re probably familiar with Carphone Warehouse and they’ve issued a press release to let folks know when they can expect to pick up the All New HTC One.

All new HTC One available from Carphone Warehouse from 25th March announcement day
London, 18.03.14: In a retail first, Carphone Warehouse has revealed that the new HTC One (M8) handset will be available from selected stores from around 4pm on Tuesday 25th March – just minutes after it is officially announced.

The new HTC flagship device will be officially unveiled by the manufacturer at special events in London and New York earlier that afternoon. Shortly after, the new HTC One (M8) handsets will be transported directly from the venue of the launch announcement to six Carphone Warehouse stores in London. Westfield Stratford, Westfield White City, Oxford Circus, Centrepoint and Tottenham Court Road stores will all be hosting special events celebrating the HTC launch with entertainment and giveaways as well as the first chance for customers to get their hands on the new device. Carphone Warehouse at Selfridges will also be stocking the handset from the same time.


The presser goes on to say that full videos and information will be shared on the company’s website, and that customers will be able to snag the All New HTC One over the phone the same afternoon. The device will hit all 700+ Carphone Warehouse locations soon after as well as the web.

If you’re chomping at the bit to get your hands on the upcoming All New HTC One, you have to dig today’s news as we usually don’t see a release the same day a smartphone is unveiled. It’s also clear that HTC plans to get the jump on Samsung this year, and it will be interesting to see how many units they push before the Galaxy S5 hits the streets.
