After what seemed like centuries of waiting, the HTC One is finally gracing Verizon’s network on August 22. This has certainly been a long time coming with countless rumored release dates. At this point, it’s just a relief to know that it’s finally launching. The One will be priced at $199 for the 16GB model, a tad pricey considering it’s nearly five months old. A 32GB model should also be coming, presumably priced at $249.
As almost a sort of consolation prize for waiting so long, Verizon is launching the One with Android 4.2.2. That makes Verizon’s model the first stateside One to receive Android 4.2.2. No word on a blue model, though, so if that is coming, Verizon has yet to disclose it.
Are you planning to buy an HTC One on Verizon?
[UPDATE] There seems to have been a bit of confusion over pricing and storage size. Apparently, it’s the 32GB model that’s being launched on August 22. And that’s what will cost $199. Verizon has said that it can’t confirm whether or not there will be a 16GB model available. Either way, this makes the pricing a little better for what you’re getting.
