AllThingsD reports the HTC One will be launching on Verizon, but it will “trail the other U.S. carriers by a month or two as it winds its way through the testing process.” HTC already announced their flagship One device would arrive on AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile, but Verizon was mysteriously absent from the launch event.
We have yet to receive any US launch dates for the HTC One, but it appears the device could hit retail stores by April or May. If this Verizon report turns out to be true, they could offer the HTC One by June or July.
Another possible scenario is that Verizon might launch the HTC One under their Droid brand. Kellen Barranger of Droid-Life reports that a device with the model number HTC6445LVW and codename DLXPLUS could launch as the Droid DNA+ or Droid One.
Whatever happens, it does appear likely that Verizon will carry some version of HTC’s flagship device. There is no telling what the final product name might be, but we should expect to see all the highlight features of the HTC One including the Ultrapixel camera, Boomsound speakers, and Blinkfeed home screen.
If you are on Verizon and want to grab HTC’s upcoming device, let us know what you think. Would you rather purchase the same HTC One that every other carrier is getting or would you prefer a Droid DNA+?
