Three has confirmed to CNET that it will be offering HTC's latest flagship phone, the One M9 , on its network in the UK.

Three hasn't officially stated when the phone will be launching, or what price plans it will be available on, but we'll update this article as more information becomes available. HTC commented that the phone is due to go on sale shortly after its unveiling at this week's Mobile World Congress, so eager HTC fans shouldn't have long to wait.

As a flagship phone with a premium metal body and high-end specs inside, you shouldn't expect it to come with a cheap price tag. SIM-free, you should expect to see it somewhere around the £550 mark, or free on contracts around £40 per month. Three is currently the only UK network to not charge any extra for its faster 4G service, so at least you won't have to pay a premium for speedy data.

You do get quite a lot of phone for your money however, including a high-powered Qualcomm 64-bit, oct-core processor, full HD display and the latest Android Lollipop software.
