HTC One SV made its debut in the UK earlier this month, but no carrier has launched the smartphone until today. The first UK-based operator to offer the One SV is Everything Everywhere (EE).
According to Eurodroid, HTC One SV LTE is now available for free on 24-month plans at various tariffs starting at £36/€43/$58 per month.
Although it’s not among the most advanced smartphones launched by HTC, the One SV is an excellent choice for those who cannot afford a flagship handset.
The bad news is that the phone ships with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system out of the box, though we expect HTC to offer a Jelly Bean upgrade later this year. However, when it comes to hardware, the One SV is more than decent.
The device packs a dual-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory, which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD memory card. It is also worth mentioning that users will receive 25GB of free cloud storage via Dropbox.
The One S sports a decent 4.3-inch Super LCD2 capacitive touchscreen display that supports 480 x 800 pixels resolution, and features Corning Gorilla Glass 2 coating.
On the back, the smartphone features a 5-megapixel photo snapper with autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording, while on the front there’s a secondary 1.6-megpaixel camera for video calls.
As we have mentioned earlier, HTC One SV comes with full support for EE’s 4G LTE network, as well as HSPA+ (42Mbps) and HSUPA (5.76Mbps).
Other highlights of the device include Beat Audio, GPS with GLONASS, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, microUSB 2.0 and HTC Sense UI.
