The HTC One was officially made available in the U.S. on AT&T and Sprint last week with the 32GB version priced at $199 with a two year agreement and is expected to hit T-Mobile later this week for only $99 down payment.But what if you would rather buy the phone yourself and not deal with extending your carrier’s contract? HTC is now making an unlocked, contract-free version of the HTC One available to purchase, and its price is surprising.

We’ve seen some expensive unlocked smartphones in the past, but the HTC One comes in at a pretty standard price of $574.99 when purchased on HTC’s website. The unlocked version of the HTC One will bring everything to its buyer that you would expect from the carrier-based version and is available in its 32GB version. When compared to the HTC One Developer Edition, which is a $649 variant that offers more control over the device as a way to make it easier to develop for, the unlocked HTC One certainly doesn’t push the envelope in terms of its pricing.
