The HTC One has been one of the most high profile and talked about smartphone models to be released so far this year. The phone is the latest flagship Android smartphone from the Taiwan based manufacturer and has received plenty of critical acclaim alongside its impressive sales figures.
Component shortages which led to delays to the handsets launch, and following stock shortages has been one of the main reasons the device has been hitting the headlines in recent months. However, it was recently revealed that the majority of these issues have now been remedied, allowing the handset to clock up some impressive sales figures.
To date, the HTC One is estimated to have sold over 5 million units, making it one of the most popular devices of the year so far. Recently, GSM Arena has reported on the latest sales data for the phone, revealing that 1.2 million units of the phone were sold in May. This is double the amount which was sold in April, which shows what an effect these production issues had on its sales.
Due to the recent launch of the Samsung Galaxy S4, the HTC One will be facing increased competition throughout the rest of 2013. However, it is expected that the device will remain one of the biggest sellers of the year. This is thanks largely to its impressive spec list, which includes a 1.7 GHz quad-core processor, 4.7 inch 1080p display, 4 Ultrapixel camera and Android Jellybean OS with HTC Sense 5.0 UI running over the top. The phone’s stylish aluminium casing is another one of its standout features, making it one of the most aesthetically pleasing smartphone models on the market.
The HTC One is now widely available in the UK, and is carried on pay monthly contracts with the majority of UK network operators. Visit our website to view a full list of HTC One contract deals.
