New HTC One for Verizon photos show off dummy model, retail packaging


Are you sitting down? If not, you should probably take a seat, because I’ve got some pretty shocking news for you: the new HTC One has leaked out.

Yes, it seems that we can’t go more than a day without being confronted by more new HTC One leaks. Today I’ve got a mid-week twofer for you, as the Verizon version of the new One has leaked out in two different styles. First up is an eBay listing by seller “dummy_models” that offers a peek at, you guessed it, the dummy model of the new HTC One. The unit looks pretty similar to the dark gray Verizon model that appeared in a render last month, complete with the Duo Camera and Verizon 4G LTE branding on its backside as well as some BoomSound speakers and on-screen navigation buttons on its face.

Today’s second leak also comes to us from eBay. This time around we’re getting a look at the Verizon HTC One’s packaging, which is not dissimilar from the box that the original HTC One came in. The phone itself doesn’t appear in any of the photos included with the listing, but we do get a look at the back of the box, which includes a pretty complete spec list for the new One:

  • 5-inch 1080p display
  • 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor
  • Rear Duo Camera with UltraPixel tech
  • 5-megapixel front-facing camera with wide-angle lens
  • 32GB built-in storage, microSD slot with support for cards up to 128GB in size
  • 2GB RAM
  • NFC
  • 4G LTE

The combination of today’s two leaks give us a pretty good idea of what the new HTC One is all about. That doesn’t mean that I’m not looking forward to the device’s event on March 25, though, because the official debut of a device is always nicer than a bunch of leaks. Plus, the event may include an announcement of the one piece of new HTC One information that we’re still missing: its release date.

    So it seems like spec wise, all of these new phones are similar. Pic your favorite overlay, your favorite camera, and your favorite design.

      I don’t see much of an improvement with the 801 compared to the 800 and the battery life is reported worse. Too bad the 805 isn’t available yet

    • Nate B.

      Exactly! So the complaint about the S5 was unrealistic wants. Just ignorance. Phones are usually on the same playing field with their few exclusive features here & there. Every business has some of the same features with their own names and deals. Some a little better in areas, but for the most part like you said choose between your fav cam, skin, and design.

      Did people really think 2K was gonna be standard? 4000 batt or something? Holograms projecting or something? These companies don’t literally invent everything. They’re implemented into their tech from other companies from behind the scenes. Reason of buying smaller business.

      Anyways, depending on this camera quality & features I might get the One.

  • steve99

    Oh it is going to have a 32gb minimum. I thought they were behind the times with 16 gb because after bloat, it only leaves you with about 9-10gbs.

  • Nate B.

    I plan on getting this phone if the camera is on point, but I would like to mention to folks that said the S5 was a let down. What exactly was a let down about it besides the physical design?

    Spec wise it’s on point and probably even better in certain areas as the new One. Both 1080 screens, S5 has bigger battery, it just might have a better camera, same processor, dust & water resistant. Anything else is exclusive to their own.

    I’ll admit the S5 could use a better design and not just a material change, but that alone doesn’t change the functionality of what a phone can do.

    • steve99

      The htc fan boys are hypocrites that’s why. But you are absolutely right, the S5 is more of an improvement than the m8 was to the one. But Htc fan boys point fingers at samsung, mean while htc is doing the exact same thing

      • Nate B.

        Right. Every company is. I favor Samsung in tech in general, but I won’t buy everything they make. I’m actually looking to get the new One if the camera is legit bad ass and no software tricks to try & filter it out like with the older one or like Google did with the Nexus 5.

        I call it like it is even if it’s what I favor.

        Only phone that might have a 2K screen is Oppo, even that is all. Same some wars but just better screen. That’s not enough for me. Software has an impact. Anyways, it’s the same argument all the time.

  • Harold Goldner

    Worst kept secret. Nonetheless, looks like a home run for HTC. Can’t wait to get my hands on it.

  • geeky_Sihag

    Nice article…..have a look at this article too on same topic….

  • DImDIm

    What I do really get is following. 801 cpu comes with DDR 3 and not DDR 2… On the back of the box it says DDR 2… somethings not right here.

  • donger

    Would choose the new One over the S5.

  • rustic

    pass. another huge device, even bigger than previous One. And of course the mini will be mid-range phone with last year specs and low resolution screen. Android manufacturers keep disappoint me. Open platform and free customization apparently mean “fuck you all people that want normal sized phone, we’ll just make huge phablets bigger and bigger”.
    The iphone 6 option is looking more real with each day.
