Sadly, Christmas Day has n0w come to an end, but at least we have the Boxing Day sales to wake up to! Starting today, Thursday, December 26, 2013, Amazon U.S. is offering the unlocked version of HTC’s current flagship smartphone, the One, with a discounted price tag of $480.00 — that’s a whopping reduction of $169.99 off the usual price.
The One is an extremely impressive high-end premium Android device, which packs a stunning 4.7-inch super LCD3 capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920, a powerful Qualcomm APQ8064T Snapdragon 600 chipset powered by four 1.7GHz Krait 300 CPU’s, an Adreno 320 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of non-expandable flash memory, a very crisp 4-megapixel “UltraPixel” rear-facing camera and a relatively mediocre 2,300 mAh non-removable Li-Po battery.
In addition, the handset ships running Android 4.2.1 skinned with HTC’s Sense 5.0 custom user interface. However, the device is upgradable to the latest build of 4.3 Jelly Bean upon receipt. Simply pop in your SIM card, boot up the device, connect to a Wi-Fi network and then you will be prompted to download and install the update.
In order to take full advantage of this offer, you will need to head on over to Amazon’s website, add the device to your basket, then at checkout $169.99 will be deducted from the usual price of $649.99.
