HTC has partnered with Tata Docomo to launch a dual SIM variant of the HTC One, called the HTC One dual SIM. The smartphone offers GSM and CDMA network support and is available for Rs. 53,590 in India. The phone was recently spotted at online retailers at Rs. 46,495.
The HTC Dual SIM+ has the same features as the HTC One, with a 4.7-inch LCD panel with 468ppi and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 CPU 1.7GHz processor. It has a 4MP UltraPixel camera with OIS and a 2.1MP front camera for video calling. The phone runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with the Sense 5 user interface and ZOE technology.
Other features included are BoomSound speakers, Beats Audio integration, and a 2,300 mAh battery. One of the main features that differentiate the One and One dual SIM is that the latter has a 64 GB MicroSD expandable memory.
HTC South Asia President Jack Yang stated at the launch, “Dual SIM smartphones are becoming more popular as they allow consumers to take advantage of the most effective network coverage in the vicinity of the user for the best possible connections.” He added that dual SIM smartphones makes it easy to track mobile usage and separate spending on work and personal usage.
“This phone (HTC One) uses the dual networks (GSM and CDMA) of Tata Docomo to offer great data & voice experience to customers. Our innovative offerings will appeal to both individual and business customers who desire a data rich experience,” Tata Docomo Head (Non Voice Services) Sunil Tandon said.
