The HTC One, the company's new flagship phone and would-be savior, will be available on AT&T starting on April 19th for $199.99. That's a good $50 less than was rumored yesterday, and it undercuts the Samsung Galaxy S4 which will launch on AT&T for $249.99. Despite some delays, it appears that HTC will beat the Galaxy S4 to market — AT&T pre-orders for Samsung's flagship start on April 16th. The phone will come in silver or black and in 32GB and 64GB capacities, the latter of which will cost $299.99. Of course, these prices all come with the requisite two-year contract attached. While we took some issue with the One's "ultrapixel" camera and battery life, it still looks to be one of the best all-around Android phones on the market — we'll see if this head start helps HTC claw back in its battle against Samsung.
Update: The HTC One is officially going on sale on April 19th at Sprint for $199.99 with a two-year contract, as well. As expected, it appears the 64GB model is exclusive to AT&T — Sprint will only be offering a 32GB model. Pre-orders start on April 5th, one day after they start on AT&T.
