HTC has sent out an email to all who ordered the company’s glorious One A9 handset. Apparently, pre-order shipments in the United States have been delayed.
HTC has indicated the wait will be multiple weeks depending on your carrier and that it will begin shipping orders on November 10th. Sprint has seen the heaviest delays thus far, but others aren’t far behind. Verizon has also pushed back the shipping date, although no specific day has been mentioned. According to HTC’s press conference, the grey and silver variants will be among the first to ship, with the red and gold versions to follow a few weeks later. However, the company decided to accept pre-orders of all color options going against their previous statement. Up until this point, HTC hasn’t elaborated much on this other than the fact that orders have been backed up.
If HTC seriously wants to change things around, this has not been a good start considering some won’t get their hands on the device they ordered until December depending on color and carrier. We’ll notify you if any changes are made. In the meantime, check out our written comparison of the HTC One A9 and Google’s new Nexus 5X.
