All New HTC One in-store release date is sooner than expected: set for March 25 in the UK

All New HTC One in-store release date is sooner than expected: set for March 25 in the UK
We already know that the All New HTC One will get officially announced on March 25th at an event simultaneously held in London and New York City, but we could only guess the actual in-store release date for HTC’s new flagship. We have previously heard rumors about a mid-April launch for the new HTC One, but now, UK retailer Carphone Warehouse has issued an official press release saying that it will ‘be stocking the handset’ on the day of the announcement, March 25th.

In it, Carphone Warehouse says that it will start selling the All New HTC One on March 25th from around 4pm, “just minutes” after the official London event wraps up.

"Shortly after [the announcement], 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."

We are yet to learn whether HTC will follow the same launch schedule in the United States, but if it manages to pull off the launch of its new HTC One so quickly, it will have a couple of weeks to sell its flagship before Samsung releases its own Galaxy S5 flagship phone. 

We ought to mention, though, that it is also possible that Carphone Warehouse could have obtained an exclusive right to sell a limited amount of the new HTC One ahead of the international roll-out. We've reached out to HTC for an official comment, and will update this post with their response.

If they do release around the global on that date, they will have a good fighting chance this year. :D Beating your opponents to the punch always help somewhat in gaining the market share.

Seems like this is a special promotion for a few select locations in the UK, NOT that the phone will be launched worldwide on the 25th....

This is fantastic news, so will we get user reviews (of the camera aswell) before the tech sites??? This is one way to beat the Samsung Galaxy S 5.

Lets hope the sim free price is not as massively expensive!!!!!

Can wait to see how the camera works & what Megapixel the photos come out as.
