HTC One (2013) Unlocked Edition Now Priced At $499.99

Whenever a newer version of a device comes out the old version usually gets a price cut. This is the case for the HTC One (2013) as its price is now down to $499.99 as indicated over at the HTC USA website. This device originally costs $599.99 and at some point sold for $574.99 which means that consumers will be getting a $100 or $75 discount.


The HTC One (2013) is available as an unlocked device and comes with 32GB of internal storage space. The beauty of an unlocked device is that you will be able to use it on any GSM network and if you constantly travel to other countries you can bring your device with you and use a local SIM on it.

The new HTC One (2014) is expected to go on sale next month at presumably a higher price so customers on a budget who would like the premium HTC experience   might want to take a look at the HTC One (2013).

However, if HTC will continue to sell the old model even when the new model is released then we could expect a further price reduction. Samsung and Apple usually drops the price of their old flagship models whenever a new one gets released so its best to wait and see if the price will drop further.

  1. Exactly. I’ll go for the new one only if it costs what the old One costed when it was released on AT&T.

  2. The original One has good hardware, and I can imagine that, in the near future, it’ll be getting all the software tweaks the updated One is getting. So, no, it’s not worth getting the new One unless you’re really sold on those dual cameras. The original One works just as good and will be pretty much the same thing after the software update.

  3. $500 for a smartphone this old is not really cheap. But given the fact that the unlocked version is selling for less now, probably the price tag of the carrier locked version will be reduced too.

  4. Yeah. It wouldn’t make sense to shell out hundreds of bucks only for minor upgrades. But the addition of another camera on the back looks interesting.

  5. I’d wait to see the difference in both old and new. Is the new one worth the extra expense? HTC is a good phone and worth the price when bought on a contract with a rebate.
