New HTC One to go on sale in UK immediately after March 25 reveal

HTC has already announced plans to hold two press events at the same time in New York City and London one week from today on March 25. While it's almost certain that the company will use the event to reveal its new version of the HTC One, a U.K. retailer has apparently jumped the gun and announced that it will start selling the phone just after the announcement.

Engadget reports that Carphone Warehouse put out a press release, perhaps a bit too soon, announcing that the new HTC One would go on sale in select stores in London just "minutes" after the phone will be officially announced. The press events will be held at 4 p.m. GMT in London, or 11 a.m. Eastern time in New York City. So far, there's no word on how much Carphone Warehouse plans to charge for the HTC One. There's also no indication if any retailer in the U.S. will start selling the new phone right after it is revealed by HTC.

Based on previous Internet leaks, the phone is rumored  to have a 5-inch display, along with a "high-end" processor from Qualcomm and dual rear cameras.

That is US only and "Android software update commitment refers to HTC's focus on providing timely software updates and is not a guarantee of specific updates or timeframes". HTC have said they will provide updates in the past, then delayed it massively and eventually scrapped it completely saying it wasn't possible

COMMITMENT TO ANDROID UPDATES keep your HTC One, HTC One mini or HTC One max up to date with the major Android updates for 2 years from the launch date of your HTC device.

So is the "new" HTC One still just called the One but with the new "gold" color now? Is the color the only way you can tell it apart from the first ones? Or is this like the One 2?

"rumored to have a 5-inch display, along with a "high-end" processor from Qualcomm and dual rear cameras." (focus on dual rear cameras)

I'm not talking about the hardware inside, I know that's new. I'm talking from the brand perspective. They're still just calling it the "HTC One" Not something like One+ or One X or w/e to better indicate it's different, at first glance it's just the color that sets it apart.
