HTC 10 64 GB seemingly not coming to the US

HTC 10 64 GB seemingly not coming to the US
Officially announced yesterday, the brand new HTC 10 can already be pre-ordered in the US, though for now you only have the choice of getting a 32 GB unlocked variant, in either Glacier Silver, or Carbon Gray. If you plan to buy the handset, but you're tempted to wait until a 64 GB model becomes available, maybe you shouldn't. While the HTC 10 64 GB will be released in some markets, the US doesn't seem to be among them.

Jeff Gordon, Senior Global Online Communications Manager at HTC, took to Twitter to mention that "the US is getting [the] HTC 10 in 32 GB" - in response to a fan inquiring about the 64 GB variant. Of course, the new HTC flagship phone supports microSD cards (up to 2 TB), so the memory can be expanded - thus, you won't be stuck with just 32 GB (which, in terms of user available memory, actually means about 23 GB).

At the moment, an unlocked HTC 10 32 GB costs $699.99, but you can use a promo code to get the price down to $599.99. The new smartphone should start shipping in early May. Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint will all offer the device on select plans, while AT&T doesn't seem to be interested in carrying it.

Replacing the One M9, but looking more like the One A9 (at least when viewed from the front), the HTC 10 runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Sense 8.0 UI, and brings plenty of attractive features - including front and rear cameras with OIS, a 5.2-inch Quad HD Super LCD 5 display, Qualcomm's powerful Snapdragon 820 processor, and 4 GB of RAM. Until we get the chance to thoroughly test the handset, check out our HTC 10 specs review.
