There’s some bad news brewing, folks. Several UK retailers have been asked to adjust their expected shipment date for the HTC One to March 29th. The device, which is supposed to be HTC’s main flagship for 2013, was supposed to come March 15th, but that date will come and go with nary a sound.
HTC was rumored to be having issues getting enough UltraPixel sensors manufactured in time for the device’s release, and while the OEM would probably never relay the exact issue we can’t imagine that rumor doesn’t have any legs at this point. We’re just glad the wait won’t last more than a couple of weeks (though you never know if another delay could creep up on us by the time we get closer to that date).
[Update]: HTC has released an official statement confirming the delay. HTC says preorders in “certain” markets will be fulfilled by the end of March, and the more global rollout will commence at some point in April.
We will start fulfilling pre-orders by end March in certain markets and will roll out to more markets as we approach April.”
