HTC One dual SIM version being sold by HTC in the UK, for the same price as the single SIM model – only with microSD card slot
It is retailing it through its own website, with a cost attached of £494.99.
That is the same price as the standard HTC One, released towards the start of this year.
“HTC is changing the premium mobile market, this is the first time we have released a dual SIM version of one of our premium handsets in the UK.”, said Peter Frolund, HTC’s General Manager UK.
“By bringing business and pleasure together in the best designed handset in the market, we’re creating a new approach and one that we believe will appeal to businesses and their employees alike.”
There are some key differences between the two models, with the dual-SIM being the main one.
To gain access to this, HTC has added a removable rear cover to the mobile phone.
With this, it has also provided a microSD card slot, for expanding the mobile phone’s storage capacity.
That wasn’t present with the standard HTC One, where this now allows 64GB of storage capacity (max).
He added, “Companies are offering greater choice to employees to choose their own phone or are happy for staff to use a personal handset for both work and pleasure.”
“With HTC One dual SIM, employees can get the handset they want while not having to pay for company usage out of their own pockets and employers can lower the sums they spend on handsets, so it delivers the best of both worlds.”
