HTC 10 was unveiled this month, but it is still not available for purchase in all major smartphone markets across the globe. As it seems, this won’t be for long as preorders for the device in the UK are now underway.
The phone will reportedly be making its debut in the country this coming month on 3rd, but this has not been confirmed just yet. Nevertheless, the fact that the phone is now available for preorders in the UK means that the official release date is imminent. The phone packs a 5.2-inch QHD Super LCD 5 display screen and comes with the latest hardware combinations as far as performance and photography are concerned. Further, the device has a huge battery unit of 3000mAh, which can also be charged using the latest Quick Charge 3.0 technology from Qualcomm via the faster USB Type-C port.
HTC 10 is considered as the device that will make both Samsung and LG sweat for their money when it comes to the flagships. As pointed out, the phone packs the latest flagship hardware that includes Snapdragon 820, Adreno 530 GPU, 4GB RAM and a 12MP rear sensor. You will also come across a fingerprint scanner, a selfie camera with OIS and a near-stock Android experience, among many other goodies.
As far as UK consumers are concerned, the HTC 10 has some interesting carrier-based offers on the table. However, it is only the Three network that has been at the forefront of going public with their HTC 10 plan. While the unlocked version of the phone is currently priced at $699 for U.S. dwellers, those who want to get it at a cheaper option via the carriers can take a look at what Three has to offer.
The mobile phone carrier will be offering the HTC 10 for an upfront fee of £49 and a monthly fee of £38. In case a recurring method of payment isn’t used, there will be a further charge of £5. With this plan, you will be entitled to unlimited calls and texts; however, the data pack provided will only stick at 1GB per month. In case you want more data, you will have to get the £57 per month plan; however, you will still have to pay the £49 upfront fee.
