In a private preview to a select number of HTC fans and members of the media, HTC Philippines showcased the features of the HTC One and announced some key details. Though this was not really a product launch, we were still able to squeeze some information.
Regional reps from HTC SEA shared that the delay in the launch of the HTC One is due to low supply of the ultrapixel component. As such, even the US release was pushed back and the Philippine launch that was scheduled back in March has been moved to 3rd week of May.
We’re also getting a hint that the units might not be enough to satisfy the demand of the handsets so they are doing some sort of a pre-order around 3rd week of May. HTC will be posting updates on their Facebook page once the pre-order forms are out.
As for the suggested retail price, the HTC One will sell for Php32,990.
