HTC’s new One series of Android smartphones will become available in some European countries on April 2 – this coming Monday. The HTC One X, One S, and One V will be hitting retail shelves in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.
The news comes straight from HTC, according to The Unwired. As such, it doesn’t get more official than this. The recommended retail pricing is as follows:
- HTC One X: €599 (Germany and Austria), CHF 719 (Switzerland)
- HTC One S: €499 (Germany and Austria), CHF 599 (Switzerland)
- HTC One V: €299 (Germany and Austria), CHF 349 (Switzerland)

As always, your retailer of choice may price these devices slightly above or below these levels. Although it wasn’t explicitly mentioned, these prices surely have VAT included in them. Otherwise, the One X would be in crazy pricing territory.
For now it’s unclear when the three HTC One smartphones will make it to other parts of Europe or, indeed, the world. Yet with the first launch coming in a few days, they’re bound to spread their wings and fly elsewhere pretty soon.
In Germany, O2 is the first carrier to confirm that it will be selling the One X and One S starting next week.
HTC’s three new One series handsets are what the company hopes will take it back to the position of leading Android smartphone maker, one that it held for several years until 2011 came along and changed things. That said, with Samsung projected to ship over 40 million smartphones this quarter, at least in terms of pure market share HTC’s dreams have no way of materializing just yet. But the mobile world moves incredibly fast, so who knows where we’ll be at one year from now.
