If you’re one of those who didn’t buy the HTC One because it lacked a microSD card slot, we have some great news for you. The HTC One Dual SIM (previously only available in China and a handful of markets in Asia) is now up for pre-order in the UK. This modified version of the HTC One features a removable back panel, two SIM card slots and a microSD expansion slot which supports up to 64GB of data. Combine that with the HTC One Dual SIM’s 32GB of internal storage and could be walking around with nearly 100GB of storage capacity in your pocket.
On the surface, the HTC One Dual SIM may look identical to the standard model, but the phone is slightly larger (137.4 x 68.3 x 10.4mm versus 137.4 x 68.2 x 9.3mm). If you own any cases for the HTC One, they will most likely not fit the HTC One Dual SIM.
If you’re willing to live with those trade-offs, the HTC One Dual SIM can be pre-ordered directly from HTC for £495 (roughly $800 including UK’s VAT). If you were hoping to buy the HTC one Dual SIM for less, rumors claim that several service providers in the UK will be selling the HTC One Dual SIM within the next few weeks.
