The HTC One, expected to be the Taiwanese smartphone maker's next flagship handset, is set to launch in the U.S. on March 22, according to a report on fan site HTC Source.

Formerly code-named M7, the HTC One with 32GB of storage will debut on AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint for $199.99 with a two-year contract, unnamed sources tell the blog. A 64GB model will sell for $299.99.

Earlier reports said the handset would debut in Europe on March 8.

The new device is expected to sport a 4.7-inch 1080p HD display, a 1.7GHz quad-core processor, an infrared port up top, and front-facing stereo speakers housed in a metal case. Other reports held that the device would be Android powered and feature a quad-core Qualcomm S4 Pro processor and a 13-megapixel camera.

CNET has contacted HTC for comment and will update this report when we learn more.

The device may be unveiled February 19. CNET will be live-blogging that event.
