Carphone Warehouse has revealed HTC’s new flagship ahead of its manufacturer and confirmed its availability on 25 March.
According to the retailer, the device is to launch next week, with special events in London and New York set up by the Taiwanese manufacturer. Carphone has confirmed the device, the HTC One M8, will be available from six of its stores across London straight from launch.
Stores include Westfield Stratford, Westfield White City, Oxford Circus, Centrepoint and Tottenham Court Road. The smartphone will be available in all 770 stores in its estate soon after.
The One (M8) is the hotly anticipated follow up to the much lauded HTC One, widely regarded as the best smartphone of 2013.
A Carphone Warehouse spokesperson said: ‘The HTC One is an award-winning handset that set the bar for design during 2013 and made many sit up and take notice – the new HTC One (M8) is likely to continue that trend and will cement HTC’s future as a heavy-hitting smartphone manufacturer. We know how keen customers are to get hold of the latest tech as soon as possible and that is why we are so excited to be able to offer the new HTC One so quickly after it is unveiled.’
A HTC spokesperson added: ‘We will be revealing all on 25th March, so watch this space.’
