HTC to Offer Google Play and Developer Editions of One

Posted by at 7:38 am on March 27, 2014

HTC said today it will offer both Google Play and developer editions of the HTC One, in addition to the carrier variants.

The Play Edition One will be sold directly from Google. It can be preordered beginning today only in silver. It will cost $699 and is sold without a contract. HTC believes the device will ship within 10 to 14 days. Importantly, HTC has made its camera API available to Google, so the Play Edition variant should be able to take advantage of the two-camera setup employed by the One for 3D shots. Google hasn’t specifically said what it will do with the HTC camera API, however.

The Play Edition will support quad-band GSM/EDGE, as well as HSPA+ in the 850/AWS/1900/2100MHz bands, and LTE in the 700/850/AWS/1900MHz bands (LTE roaming in the 1800/2600MHz bands). HTC itself is selling an unlocked developer edition of the One, also, which can be ordered from beginning today for $649.

It is a GSM model, though HTC didn’t specify what 3G/4G bands it will support.
