HTC announced the One SV at the beginning of December, at which time it pre-empted EE’s launch by confirming it had struck a deal with the network, and that the phone would be another 4G exclusive. After a longer than expected wait, EE has finally put the One SV on sale.
As the One SV is a mid-range phone, EE is offering it for free, but you’ll have to pay EE’s considerable 4G tariffs. For example, the cheapest option costs £36 per month for which you get 500MB of data and unlimited calls and texts. Oh, and you’ll need to sign-up for two years.
The prices only go up from there, so despite the One SV’s low price, you’ll end up paying a considerable premium for the pleasure of enjoying EE’s high speed data.
As a reminder, the One SV has a 4.3-inch touchscreen with a 480 x 800 pixel resolution, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a 5-megapixel camera and 8GB of internal storage memory. Other features include a microSD card slot, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and a video call camera lens. The One SV has Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich installed, with HTC Sense 4 over the top.
The One SV is in stock with EE, so if you’ve got the money and you live in the right area, you can buy it right now. Alternatively, if you want the One SV without the added 4G expense, the phone can be purchased, SIM-free for around £350 from online retailers such as Clove Technology.
