The HTC One SV went on sale in the UK yesterday, and today we got word that it’s headed to the US too. When HTC announced the device back in November, only Europe, Singapore, and Australia were known to be among the markets in which it would be released.
But now you can add Cricket to the list too. The US carrier has announced that it will start selling the One SV on January 16 for $349.99 (without a long term contract requirement, naturally).
The HTC One SV is a midranger in this day and age. It comes with a 4.3-inch 480×800 Super LCD 2 Gorilla Glass touchscreen, a 5 MP rear camera with LED flash and 1080p Full HD video recording, a secondary front-facing camera with 720p HD video, a dual-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of storage space expandable via microSD, Beats Audio, and a 1,800 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The One SV can be paired with many 3G and 4G data options from Cricket, and it will be available only in the Flame color you can see above. The carrier boasts that this phone will be “initially available in the United States only at Cricket Wireless”, so it’s likely that we’ll see the One SV elsewhere in a few months or so.
