HTC is broadening its smartphone range with the launch of the HTC One SV - the second-4G ready to hit the UK, following the HTC One XL.

The HTC One SV LTE launches with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (with a 4.2 Jelly Bean update expected at some point), overlayed with  HTC Sense 4. Specifications are mid-range, so it has a 4.3-inch WVGA screen and 1.2Ghz Qualcomm dual-core processor with 1GB RAM. Storage is 8GB and pleasingly it that's not enough there’s a microSD slot.

EE has just confirmed 4G pricing for the phone, and it’s available on T-Mobile and Orange if you're happy with 3G.

HTC One SV


EE

EE offers five tariffs for the HTC One SV. If you want to get a 4G SIM we’d advise opting for a minimum of 3GB data.

  • £36 a month (24 months), 500MB data, unlimited minutes, unlimited texts
  • £41 a month (24 months), 1GB data, unlimited minutes, unlimited texts
  • £46 a month (24 months), 3GB data, unlimited minutes, unlimited texts
  • £51 a month (24 months), 5GB data, unlimited minutes, unlimited texts
  • £56 a month (24 months), 8GB data, unlimited minutes, unlimited texts


The HTC One SV supports multiple 4G bands - 800, 1800 and 2600. Opt for a 12-month plan and you might pay a bit more per month, but you aren’t tied into a two-year contract with EE and you’ll be able to swap to forthcoming 4G networks we’re expecting to be awarded to Three, O2 and Vodafone.

  • £46 a month (12 months), 500MB data, unlimited minutes, unlimited texts, handset cost £49.99
  • £51 a month (12 months), 1GB data, unlimited minutes, unlimited texts, handset cost £49.99

  • £66 a month (12 months), 8GB data, unlimited minutes, unlimited texts, handset cost £49.99
