The HTC One is one of the best designed phones available at the moment, and now it gets another variant, a dual-SIM model with expandable storage via microSD card of up to 64GBs. The extra storage capacity is on top of the already included 32GB of internal storage. To access the dual-SIMs and microSD card the back plate is removable.
HTC describes the dual-SIM functions as:
- Receive calls from either SIM card at any time
- Switch seamlessly between both sim cards while you talk
- HTC Sense helps you manage calls, texts and data between sim cards effortlessly
- On-board Dual Network Manager allows you to select a preferred network and personalise the name of each SIM, eliminating any complexity
The HTC One Dual SIM is available for pre-order now through the HTC Official Store in the UK for 495 pounds ($886). The specifications are similar to the HTC One, though the Dual SIM doesn’t support LTE/4G. We were impressed with the One when we reviewed it, and full specifications can be found in our review. We would hope that the Dual SIM gets a wider release, and with the initial roll out starting in the UK, this looks promising.
