EE and Three UK to carry the HTC One mini 2 [UPDATED]

15 May, 2014

Two UK carriers have announced that they will be offering the new HTC One mini 2 EE and Three. EE will have exclusivity on the Amber Gold, which along with the Gunmetal Grey version will be available for pre-order on May 23. The phone will ship in June but there's no concrete date yet.

Three will also be carrying the new mini Android from HTC and published a short hands-on video that shows off the device (and don't forget we have a hands-on too).

Unfortunately, neither carrier announced a price and what we've heard so far isn't very encouraging HTC Netherlands posted a MSRP price of 470, which works out to 380. It sounds like a lot, but a SIM-free HTC One mini (the original) goes for 320 at Carphone Warehouse.

Update: Phones4u has published a hands-on too. The retailer expects to deliver the phones by June 13, the device will be free at 25 a month.

Update 2: Carphone Warehouse also put up the One mini 2 on pre-order starting at £21 / month (with a free device). There are offers for both Vodafone and O2.
