According to phone tech site The Unwired, all three of HTC's new One series handsets are slated to arrive in central Europe in just a few short days. The coveted HTC One X , the company's first quad-core CPU powered smartphone (1.5GHz nVidia Tegra 3) will cost a steep 599 euro ($795).

The HTC One S , running a dual-core Qualcomm S4 processor and sporting what HTC calls a ceramic metal microarc oxidation construction, will have a sticker price of 499 euro ($662). Lastly the HTC One V, using a unibody metallic design harkening back to days of the HTC Hero and Legend, has a weaker single-core CPU under the hood. The least expensive of the bunch, the One V will set European shoppers back 299 euro ($397).

All three phones will boast Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, HTC's newest iteration of its Sense user interface and be sold in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. We here in the States will have to sit tight until versions of these handsets arrive in the clutches of our wireless carriers. We won't have to wait to long, I expect, since a dual-core flavor of the HTC One X could be announced by Sprint next week . More details for AT&T's already announced One X model, as well as the One S for T-Mobile, will likely be revealed in May at the CTIA trade show.
