HTC One black and silver official (generic)

HTC has confirmed that the One Dual SIM blower is on its way to the UK, having already made its debut in China in recent weeks.

The new version of the Taiwanese mobile-maker’s flagship device has the ability to handle two SIM cards simultaneously, making it perfect for those who pack two devices for work and home.

There’s a special dual-network manager tool, which allows users to personalise each SIM to prevent confusion when taking calls.

Calls from either SIM can be taken at any time and, brilliantly, there’s the ability to switch between SIMs while on a call, meaning it’s easy to take that work call while nattering with pals about last weekend’s footie on the other line.

There is one annoying miss, however. The HTC One Dual SIM doesn’t support 4G LTE, meaning it won’t play nice on lightning-fast networks. On the plus side, that should keep bills down.

Otherwise, specs are the same as the HTC One, with a natty aluminium frame, stunning HD display and BoomSound tech for blasting out tunes and taking conference calls.

The device will set you back £494.99 SIM-free, with network deals due in the next few weeks.
