HTC One: Release date delayed due to 'problem in camera, metal casing'

HTC One: Release date delayed due to 'problem in camera, metal casing' London: Taiwanese mobile maker HTC has delayed shipments of its new flagship smartphone, HTC One.

The firm delayed the release due to problems in sourcing camera components and metal casing for the device.

The delay pushes back the release of the phone, announced on 19 February, to the end of March at the earliest in any market, and into April for many markets, the Guardian reports.

According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, HTC's chief executive, may come under pressure to resign from his board.

He had suggested he would step down if the new phone is not a success, the report said.
