HTC "All New One" (HTC M8) hits FCC: likely coming to all four major US carriers
This time, judging by the FCC filings, we learn that HTC’s “All New One” is likely to have six different models for different carriers, supporting different bands. Good news is that among these six are four models that are likely destined for the four major US carriers.
Before we examine them, though, we ought to mention that one of these six is the NM80P6B100 model, which looks like the international version of the new One with support for 4G LTE on band 7, popular across Europe, Asia and other territories.
Then, there are four different HTC “All New One” models - for Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. The difference between them seems to be only in the connectivity, as they support different 4G LTE bands. Model NM80P6B120 is the AT&T one, NM80P6B200 is for Verizon Wireless, NM80P6B700 is the Sprint-bound version, and NM80P6B160 is for T-Mobile. The last version, carrying product ID NM80P6B130, supports 4G LTE bands 4 and 17, which are frequencies commonly supported by regional US carriers.
The 3.5mm headset jack seems to be located on the bottom
Summing it all up, we have all evidence suggesting that the new HTC flagship will arrive on all US carriers, and that's good news. HTC has set the official unveiling date for the handset for March 25th, so it won’t be long until we learn more about the company’s next big thing.

When? As in likely coming to all four carriers - when? All at once? Or, in dribs and drabs (AT&T + T-Mo, followed by Sprint, with VZW last 9 months later)? Dribs and drabs is a marketing FAIL.

Well at least they learned not to go exclusive like they used to. The most idiotic thing to do is release on one carrier and hope those idiots will promote it for you.

What's all this stuff about those carriers in the US? Why can't you buy every phone from every carrier? That's strange...

Because some marketing decisions are made by mentally impaired people. Last year, HTC released the OG One on AT&T and T-Mo. Then, maybe 4 or 5 months later, on Sprint. And finally, after the party was over, on VZW. I am hoping the person(s) who made last year's roll-out decision has left the company, and their replacement is not as mentally impaired.

What? it launched on sprint at the same time as at&t and Tmo. 4-5 months later the red version came out for sprint only.

Dude Sprint got it at the same time as AT&T/TMO. Verizon was way late though.

I don't think HTC can, from a financial space, afford to do a staggered release like they did last year. Judging from their massive drop in quarterly sales, they better start shipping devices worldwide to all supported carriers the moment their official unveiling presentation is over.

They couldn't afford to do a staggered release last year either. If they do a staggered release this year, that is just STUUUPID!

I think this is honestly HTC's year to shine, sorry samsung you gave up being awesome and HTC didn't. Can't wait to see the final final phone not some video of some inept kid. Also curious of the G3, even though sense 5 honestly looks SO much better haha
