Yesterday we found out the UK release of the HTC One would be delayed by two weeks. Of course when it rains it pours so everyone is wondering if: 1) there will be further delay and 2) will it effect the U.S. market? Well I’m not sure we can give you an answer on any further delays just yet, but HTC did say the UK delays have nothing to do with the U.S.
“The statement doesn’t apply to US models. The US carriers are on a separate timeline”
Unfortunately this doesn’t tell us that the U.S. market won’t have a separate delay at some point. It is our understanding that these delays are due to component shortages regarding the UltraPixel camera. We can only hope that things will get rectified soon, and we won’t see any more delays. We are expecting to see the HTC One hit U.S. carriers by early April. It’s a lot like the weather in that it’s beyond our control and we will just have to wait and see.
