HTC One Dual SIM now on pre-order in UK, adds microSD slot as well

Now that's a nice surprise. HTC just launched a dual SIM version of its HTC One smartphone on the UK market. The handset, referred to as the HTC One Dual SIM, has a removable back cover, behind which the pair of micro SIM card slots are situated. There's a slot for microSD cards in there as well – a perk not available on the current HTC One variant. 

Specs-wise, nothing seems to have been tweaked. The HTC One Dual SIM comes with a 1.7GHz quad-core processor, a 4.7-inch screen with resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels, an UltraPixel camera, 32GB of storage, and Android Jelly Bean sprinkled with a dose of Sense 5 on top. LTE connectivity is missing on this one.

For the record, this isn't the first time we come across a dual SIM HTC One model. As a matter of fact, there's been one available for months, yet sold solely in China and other parts of Asia. 

The HTC One Dual SIM is now up for pre-order at the company's UK online store, priced at £494.99 ($808) SIM-free.

Couldn't they add that slot before? Instead they kept posting videos about why they couldn't add a slot because low space and stuff :/ Also I don't know about UK pricing, but dual sim HTC one costs fortune in India. Pathetic strategy by HTC.

Well I'm not German and I don't understand German. I randomly chose this name and later realized that Eisenbrecher has a meaning.

Do you know, how much more thickness and weight they added now to this tin-can brick? The tech media will never tell you. LOL HTC One is the worst designed devise EVER, at the very beginning, and nothing will help now.

I'm not talking about "beauty" here , but about tech design. Beauty is only part of it. Don't know how much Apple brainwashed you, but many of don't know what it is.

To put in the dual sim and sim card, they took out LTE. If they kept LTE then I would totally agree with you.

Too late htc. Too late. Still its nice to know you guys are leraning from your mistakes. Next thing to correct is the ultra crappy camera and launch the phones in time. Please dont launch a s800 phone in 2014 when 64 bit and octa core processors are available.

Do you know, how much more thickness and weight they added now to this heavy and thick (already) tin-can brick? There were such version in China since long ago . And the removable aluminum back is a disaster.

WTF?? I tell you the truth, you call me "troll" Wow. Don't you have some arguments iboy? By the way not only PA, but all the tech media are dumb about the added thickness and heaviness. For free???

I agree with giani maybe you are just samsung paid troll. Because i still remember you are the close minded guy who think that samsung is the only brand in the world that have both sd card and swappable battery on the high end devices. And you also think that mugen power make extra capacity battery with the same size as the original battery only for samsung.

Dity triks again. Yes I did't count BB , sorry . My mistake. LOL When I said "samsung is the only brand in the world that have both sd card and swappable battery on the high end devices" I meant iOS, Android, and Windows. But mostly Android. Where Samsung is the King and the ONLY. I hate not to have a choise. Why should they force me to buy only Samsung??? I didn't say " mugen power make extra capacity battery with the same size as the original battery only for samsung." I said that only the high end devices having swappable battery, can take the advantage of it.

hahahaha... just like always i'm not talking about bb, LG OPTIMUS G PRO is high end android device, and its launched this year.
